OvS-DPDK Usability Improvements for Real-World Applications- Aaron Conole, Red Hat, Robin Giller and Bhanuprakash Bodireddy, Intel

The DPDK datapath in OvS significantly boosts OvS' data plane performance, making OvS-DPDK an attractive vSwitch option in an NFV infrastructure (NFV-I) for Telco work-loads. While crucially important for NFV deployments, the improved performance is only half the story. For success in NFV, the DPDK-accelerated virtual switch requires straight forward installation and configuration through standard tools, ease of use, and seamless integration with OpenStack to provide functionality important to the end user in a real-world deployment scenario. VMWare, Red Hat, and Intel have made great strides in recent versions of DPDK-accelerated Open vSwitch with an effort toward meeting these usability requirements.

In this paper, we describe the usability improvements made in DPDK and OvS code bases. The work covered includes debug tools, command line options, and documentation needed to enable the integrated solution. An example system setup demonstrates the ease of both deployment and debugging of a DPDK-accelerated OvS in an OpenStack managed NFV environment, showcasing the features and performance achievable.
