ONOS: Getting Started
October 24, 2015 Leave a comment
This is a short and fast introduction to ONOS CLI and GUI. The project WIKI is a great and necessary resource but I wanted to develop a screen recording that could help launch a hands-on exploration of ONOS features. Below is a session of interaction with ONOS to access forwarding plane topology information and also a peek at the capability to stop, start or install new applications in a running controller.
As you explore ONOS following resources might be helpful
- The published CLI
- The Quick Start VM on ONOS WIKI is a nice packaged introduction to the controller
- Mininet walkthrough tutorial is essential learning resource.
- Intro to Mininet video is also excellent.
The custom topology can be copied/downloaded and saved in a file with a .py extension (triangleTopo.py in the video).
I hope it will be helpful on your SDN journey.
