    31 We typically put the FlowVisor fvadmin password into /etc/flowvisor/fvpasswd, so you don't have to type it every time you run an fvctl command. Make sure that it's only readable by people who should have full admin access to FlowVisor on your system! (World-readable might be fine if only FV admins have accounts on your FV server; or you might want to make it only group-readable by a group that includes the FV admins.) The examples on the rest of this page assume that you've done that.

    43 Since most of our FlowVisor instances are managed by FOAM, when we upgrade FlowVisor, we typically just test FOAM to make sure that everything still works as expected.

    47 Here are some useful fvctl commands; run these on the system that runs the FlowVisor you want to configure, with the fvadmin password in /etc/flowvisor/fvpasswd.
