Scaling Software-Defined Network Controllers on Multicore Servers

  title={Scaling Software-Defined Network Controllers on Multicore Servers},
  author={Yang Richard Yang},
Software defined networks (SDN) introduce centralized controllers to drastically increase network programmability. The simplicity of a logical centralized controller, however, can come at the cost of controller programming complexity and scalability. In this paper, we present McNettle, an extensible SDN controller system whose control event processing throughput scales with the number of system CPU cores and which supports control algorithms requiring globally visible state changes occurring at… CONTINUE READING
