OpenFlow pipeline

MAC group tables can be enabled for an OpenFlow instance in “standard match” mode or “ip control” mode. By default, both source mac group table and destination mac group tables are disabled. These tables can be enabled in the pipeline by using the commands src-mac-grp-table or dest-mac-grp-table. The following figures depict the various combinations of OpenFlow pipelines that an instance can have.
