The Big Switch Controller

This page describes the controller by Big Switch Networks. The controller uses a REST API that leverages HTTP control messages to let an admin manipulate flows.

The REST API

Flow manipulation is done by logging onto the controller, entering debug mode, and issuing HTTP control messages (e.g. PUT, GET, DELETE) using curl. Here we'll describe how to use the REST API through an example based on the REST documents (linked at the bottom of the page) and e-mail exchanges.

  1. Log in. From gw.orbit-lab.org, ssh to kvm-big as user admin, password native101.
  2. Enter debug mode.
