Current deployment scenarios from the LTP http://artifacts.opnfv.org/vswitchperf/docs/requirements/vswitchperf_ltp.html

We are currently switching terminology levels between host, VNF and port level... Suggestion: Describe the topologies through the flows from port to port through the vSwitch.

Lettering (It's case sensitive):

LetterRepresentsOther Options
LLocalCould just be H for HOST followed by an id
RRemoteCould just be H for HOST followed by an id
SvSwitch 
PPhysical NIC 
VVirtual NIC 
pppatch port 
OOverlay port – not sure if we need… 
BBypass Techonology port 
   

NOTE: we still need a Way to specify the Number of VMs...


 

 

Numbering:
Numeric values can follow any of the last S, V, and P or nothing follows them which implies a 1.  A 
standalone number should be considered an index and number prefixed with x should be considered a multiplication factor, e.g. LS1 vs. PVx3P

 

 

For ports it implies the number of ports Vx2 is two virtual ports connected in succession.

 

For switches it actually acts as an Identifier LS2 is local switch 2.
