    99In this tutorial we are going to use [http://openvswitch.org/ Open vSwitch (OVS)] as an !OpenFlow switch connected to three hosts.
    1010OVS is a software switch running on a compute resource. The other three hosts can only communicate through the OVS switch. Although the controller for the switch can run anywhere in the Internet, we are going to run it on the same host as the OVS switch to minimize the required resources.
    11 For this tutorial we are going to use the [http://www.noxrepo.org/pox/about-pox/ PoX controller], this is just an example of [wiki:OpenFlow/Controllers many controllers].

    1212The OVS switch that we use runs in userspace which although not optimized for performance, it is enough for getting acquainted with OpenFlow.

    2222   - Basic understanding of OpenFlow. If you are going over this tutorial at home, flip through the [attachment:OpenFlowOVS_instructions.pdf tutorial's slides]
    2323   - Familiarity with Unix Command line
    24    - Familiarity with python programming language.  We are going to use the [http://www.noxrepo.org/pox/about-pox/ PoX controller], this is just an example of [wiki:OpenFlow/Controllers many controllers], and PoX is written in python.
