On consistent updates in software defined networks

Ratul Mahajan, Roger Wattenhofer
2013 Proceedings of the Twelfth ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks - HotNets-XII  
For one basic consistency property-no packet should loop-we develop an update algorithm that has provably minimal dependency structure.  ...  We also sketch a general architecture for consistent updates that separates the twin concerns of consistency and efficiency.  ...  A straightforward possibility is for the same software module (controller) to decide on new rules and then micro manage the update process in a way that maintains consistency.  ...

Consistent updates for software-defined networks

Mark Reitblatt, Nate Foster, Jennifer Rexford, David Walker
2011 Proceedings of the 10th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks - HotNets '11  
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) provides an exciting opportunity to do better.  ...  However, a piecemeal attack on this fundamental problem, while pragmatic in the short term, is unlikely to lead to significant long-term progress.  ...  Our work is supported in part by ONR grant N00014-09-1-0770 and NSF grants CNS-1111698 and CNS-1111520.  ...

Consistent updates in software defined networks: On dependencies, loop freedom, and blackholes

Klaus-Tycho Forster, Ratul Mahajan, Roger Wattenhofer
2016 2016 IFIP Networking Conference (IFIP Networking) and Workshops  
We consider the problem of finding efficient methods to update forwarding rules in Software Defined Networks (SDNs).  ...  We also consider the basic case of just one destination in the network and show that the greedy approach can be nearly arbitrarily bad.  ...  Klaus-Tycho Förster was supported in part by Microsoft Research.  ...

Incremental consistent updates

Naga Praveen Katta, Jennifer Rexford, David Walker
2013 Proceedings of the second ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Hot topics in software defined networking - HotSDN '13  
A consistent update installs a new packet-forwarding policy across the switches of a software-defined network in place of an old policy.  ...  While doing so, such an update guarantees that every packet entering the network either obeys the old policy or the new one, but not some combination of the two.  ...  We would also like to thank Mark Reitblatt and Nate Foster for sharing parts of their implementation of consistent updates.  ...

Time-based updates in software defined networks

Tal Mizrahi, Yoram Moses
2013 Proceedings of the second ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Hot topics in software defined networking - HotSDN '13  
This challenge is especially critical in Software Defined Networks, where the control plane is managed by a logically centralized controller, and configuration updates occur frequently.  ...  In this paper we discuss the tradeoff between maintaining consistency during configuration updates and the update performance.  ...  INTRODUCTION The Configuration Update Problem. Software Defined Networks (SDN) define a centralized architecture, where the control plane is managed by a controller.  ...

AdamMC: A Model Checker for Petri Nets with Transits against Flow-LTL [chapter]

Bernd Finkbeiner, Manuel Gieseking, Jesko Hecking-Harbusch, Ernst-Rüdiger Olderog
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We describe how AdamMC can automatically encode concurrent updates of software-defined networks as Petri nets with transits and how common network specifications can be expressed in Flow-LTL.  ...  In software-defined networks, it is far more convenient to specify the correct behavior of packets than the global behavior of the entire network.  ...  Solutions for correctness of updates of software-defined networks include consistent updates [7, 28] , dynamic scheduling [17] , and incremental updates [18] .  ...
