Open vSwitch is an open-source software switch designed to be used as
a vswitch (virtual switch) in virtualized server environments.  A
vswitch forwards traffic between different virtual machines (VMs) on
the same physical host and also forwards traffic between VMs and the
physical network.  Open vSwitch is open to programmatic extension and
control using OpenFlow and the OVSDB (Open vSwitch Database)
management protocol.  This document defines the OVSDB management
protocol.  The Open vSwitch project includes open-source OVSDB client
and server implementations.
