Reinstantiated inNamespace and routed control network.

We need to figure out how to specify the IP addresses for the
routed control network. For now I'm going back to 192.168.12x.y

Also changed controller params to use IP strings rather than
numbers. However, we still need to clarify what ControllerParams...

Mininet: A Simple Virtual Testbed for OpenFlow aka How to Squeeze a 1024-node OpenFlow Network onto your Laptop (Extremely Experimental Development Version 0.1, December 2009) --- Mininet creates simple OpenFlow test networks by using process-based virtualization and network namespaces. Simulated hosts (as well as switches and controllers with the user datapath) are created as processes in separate network namespaces. This allows a complete OpenFlow network to be simulated on top of a single Linux kernel. Mininet provides a set of Python classes and functions which enable creation of OpenFlow networks of varying sizes and topologies. In order to run Mininet, you must have: * A Linux 2.6.26 or greater kernel compiled with network namespace support enabled. (debian-testing seems to have such a kernel, but it doesn't work for compiling nox, unfortunately.) * The OpenFlow reference implementation (either the user or kernel datapath may be used, and the tun or ofdatapath kernel modules must be loaded, respectively) * Python, bash, ping, iperf, etc. * Root privileges (required for network device access) * The netns program (included as netns.c), or an equivalent program of the same name, installed in an appropriate path location * mininet.py installed in an appropriate Python path location Currently mininet includes: - A simple node infrastructure (Host, Switch, Controller classes) for creating virtual OpenFlow networks - A simple network infrastructure (class Network and its descendants TreeNet, GridNet and LinearNet) for creating scalable topologies and running experiments (e.g. TreeNet(2,3).run(pingTest) ) - Some simple tests which can be run using someNetwork.run( test ) - A simple command-line interface which may be invoked on a network using .run( Cli ). It provides useful diagnostic commands, as well as the ability to send a command to a node. For example, mininet> h11 ifconfig -a tells host h11 to run the command 'ifconfig -a' - A 'cleanup' script to get rid of junk (interfaces, processes, files in /tmp, etc.) which might be left around by mininet. Try this if things stop working! - Examples (in examples/ directory) to help you get started. Batteries are not included (yet!) However, some preliminary installation notes are included in the INSTALL file. Good luck! --- Bob Lantz rlantz@cs.stanford.edu
