I am proud to announce Avior, an open source project developed by the Marist College/IBM Joint Study OpenFlow research team. Avior was designed to fill a void in the realm of floodlight administration while propelling the forward development of open source Floodlight applications. The application runs independently of the controller and communicates with the controller using the default restAPI.
- Display of basic network information (switches, hosts, controller info)
- More importantly it has a complete flow manager that will allow you to add, modify, and delete current flows on the network, all without having to glance at python scripting or the restAPI JSON once!
The application is quite simple at the moment, but it will be updated in accordance with future Floodlight development. Our immediate concern is to expand the network information feature to fully exploit the capabilities of the rest API. After that is completed, we hope to work closely with Floodlight developers to understand the future of Floodlight and in turn, our application.
We highly encourage anyone that uses Floodlight to download and try the application. If you are interested in collaborating with our team or simply want to contact us, you can reach the team at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you want to learn more about what we’re doing with OpenFlow as a whole please visit our project website. We are very excited to be working with Floodlight and look forward to hearing from some of you!
