This is a release plan for Table Type Patterns. The project goals for this release are:

  • to support live OpenFlow control through a TTP-constrained OpenFlow API
  • to offer a utility that supports comparison and matching of "flow-match-actions" between two TTPs
  • to provide an ability for developers to leverage the comparison utility to map "app TTPs" to "device TTPs"

Release Deliverables

NameExternal APIDescription
Bug fixingn/aHigh-priority bug fixes.
Flow_pathsCLI onlyTracking all flow management options for a TTP
ComparisonCLI only?Comparing Flow_paths for two separate TTPs (typically app and device level)
Dynamic Map (tentative)no programmatic APIEnable human guided dynamic map of App TTP request to Device TTP
Auto-load to TTP repository (tentative)via TTP YANG model and augmentationsread TTPs from disk (or remote URLs) into the TTP repository
DIDM driver (tentative)via DIDM?provide a DIDM driver based on the dynamic maps
TTP pipeline snippets and composition (very tentative)unknown, based on interest or workprovide a way to describe snippets of OpenFlow pipeline and compose them to make full pipelines originally targeting vSwitches
TTP 1.1 support (tentative)via updated YANG modeladopt changes as needed from to-be-published TTP 1.1 spec

Externally Consumable APIs

Note: While the CLI tool is intended for external consumption in that we expect people outside to use it, it is not intended for programmatic consumption and so the API is not listed in this table.
