OVSDB and VXLAN User Guide for QFX Series Switches (Contrail)

The Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) management protocol provides a control plane through which QFX Series switches in the physical underlay can exchange control and statistical information with Juniper Networks Contrail controllers in the virtual overlay. Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) provides a data plane through which Layer 2 data packets can be tunneled over a Layer 3 transport network. Use this guide to learn how OVSDB-VXLAN is implemented on QFX Series switches and to configure and monitor OVSDB-VXLAN on these Juniper Networks devices.
