[mininet-discuss] How to let the switch drop a certain packet?

I guess you could copy every packet to the controller and send individual
rules to allow or drop based on a counter. This would be exceptionally slow
and strange. What are you trying to accomplish? If I were trying to use
openflow to simulate congestion, I'd probably set up some traffic and have
the controller randomly drop packets every few seconds or milliseconds.
