OVS Quantum Plugin
The Quantum openvswitch plugin works as part of the OpenStack Quantum Virtual Network Service.
The Quantum Openvswitch plugin consists of two components:
1) A plugin loaded at runtime by the Quantum service. The plugin processes all API calls and stores the resulting logical network data model and associated network mappings in a database backend .
2) An agent which runs on each compute node (i.e., each node running nova-compute). This agent gathers the configuration and mappings from the central mysql database and communicates directly with the local Open vSwitch instance to configure flows to implement the logical data model.
