Events that change the Operational Status of the OpenFlow instance

The Oper. Status field indicates the operational status of the instance and can be either up or down. The operational status is down when either the member VLAN of the OpenFlow instance does not exist on the switch or the controller VLAN of the OpenFlow instance does not exist on the switch. In the case when multiple controllers connect over multiple controller VLANs, the operational status is down when none of the controller VLANs exist on the switch. When the member VLAN is down - all ports on the member VLAN are down.

For example, the show openflow instance <instance-name> displays all the OpenFlow instance-related information as follows:

For purposes of this example, the instance <test> has been created.

switch(openflow)# show openflow instance test
