     25The various parts of the diagram are as follows:
     26    - '''Inside and Outside Nodes''': These nodes can be any ExoGENI Virtual Nodes.
     27    - '''Switch:''' This node is a Linux host running Open vSwitch. Your Load Balancing OpenFlow Controller will be running on this node as well. '''This is the main node that you will be working on'''.
     28    - '''Traffic Shaping Nodes (Left and Right)''': These are Linux hosts with two network interfaces. You can configure netem on the two traffic shaping nodes to have differing characteristics; the specific values don’t matter, as long as they are reasonable. Use several different delay/loss combinations as you test your load balancer.
     29    - '''Aggregator''': This node is a Linux host running Open vSwitch with a switch controller that will cause TCP connections to “follow” the decisions made by your OpenFlow controller on the Switch node. So leave this node alone, you only need to implement the OpenFlow controller on node "Switch".
