Description Simon Horman 2017-07-06 11:06:50 EDT

The intention of this bug is to provide insight into a feature proposed by Netronome for inclusion in RHEL7.5.


Working is underway to add support for Open vSwitch to program flows into the kernel and hardware using TC-Flower. This is a mechanism to allow acceleration of OvS using hardware such as Netronome SmartNICs.

The scope of this Bugzilla is to add set-action support to TC-based offload of Open vSwitch.


Under development. The plan is to post these for inclusion in the upstream kernel in the v2.9 development cycle. I intend to provide an update here once patches are available or merged.

The plan is to update Fast datapath channnel to OVS 2.9 with RHEL 7.5. 
RHOSP 13 will consume OVS from Fast datapath channel
