Open vSwitch Documentation

How the Documentation is Organised

The Open vSwitch documentation is organised into multiple sections:

  • Installation guides guide you through installing Open vSwitch (OVS) on a variety of different platforms
  • Tutorials take you through a series of steps to configure OVS in sandboxed environments
  • Topic guides provide a high level overview of OVS internals and operation
  • How-to guides are recipes or use-cases for OVS. They are more advanced than the tutorials.
  • Frequently Asked Questions provide general insight into a variety of topics related to configuration and operation of OVS.
