User Friendly vNetworks- Nishanth Devarajan, Student

OVN with OVS provide versatile networking functions, but unfortunately the user friendliness of OVN reduces drastically with the complexity of a use case. This would be a hinderance to OVN adoption assuming that its versatility is to increase in the future, given the current state of flux in the networking area.

Flaws - pertaining to situations where user friendliness is compromised - that were discerned, will be listed and briefly explained. Specifically use cases where such flaws tend to severely compromise on user friendliness will be demonstrated. For example, consider ovn-sbctl lflow-list. For a simple use case, the command produces a long list of hard-to-read flow rules within the terminal window. A simple inbuilt piping feature, listing the output of the command in a temporary output text file is an effective way of improving on user friendliness.

The session will end on the importance and need of user friendliness going forward, with the rise of programmable data planes and network programming.
