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) and Open Virtual Network (OVN) on a variety of different platforms
- Tutorials take you through a series of steps to configure OVS and OVN in sandboxed environments
- Topic guides provide a high level overview of OVS and OVN internals and operation
- How-to guides are recipes or use-cases for OVS and OVN. 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 and OVN.
