Open VSwitch with DPDK: Architecture and Performance

This presentation covers Open vSwitch, a production quality, multilayer virtual switch that supports SDN control semantics via the Open Flow protocol and its OVSDB management interface. The performance is not sufficient to support the Telco NFV use cases, so the video further shows how DPDK is integrated into native OVS to boost performance. The presentation specifically covers OVS multilevel table support, vhost multi-queue, and related features used with DPDK to achieve maximum performance. The presentation ends with benchmark results on OVS for most commonly used use cases.
