OVS-DPDK Source build¶
CentOS currently does not provide packages for ovs with dpdk. The Ubuntu packages do not support UIO based drivers. To use the uio_pci_generic driver on Ubuntu a source build is required.
Building ovs with dpdk containers from source¶
Append the following to
/etc/kolla/kolla-build.conf to select the version
of ovs and dpdk to use for your source build.
[openvswitch-base-plugin-ovs] type = git location = https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs.git reference = v2.10.0 [openvswitch-base-plugin-dpdk] type = git location = http://dpdk.org/git/dpdk reference = v17.11
To build the container, run the following command inside a cloned kolla repository:
tools/build.py -t source --template-override contrib/template-override/ovs-dpdk.j2 ovsdpdk
