This is particularly important if you’re using Open vSwitch.
ovs-ofctl not only works correctly with OVS - it’s also easy to use because it takes the switch name:
ovs-ofctl add-flow s1 in_port=1,actions=output:2
More information at:
2. the ovs-ofctl manual page (type ‘man ovs-ofctl’)
If you need to look at OVS’s kernel flow cache, you can use ovs-dpctl, but this is never what you want to do in normal usage.
