Installing flotapr2

About flotapr2

flotapr2 is an application that will let you tap into any flow pair on the open flow network.

By entering the shource host, destination host and analyzer IP addresses, flotapr2 maps the topology across the network and learn where all the paths cross. This is called the convergence dpid. At this point the traffic is bifurcated and copy to the path to the Analyzer.

Caution: When launching flotapr2 you will need to supply the openflow table number to add the flow for OF 1.3 capable dpids. Typically you will want to use the highest table number configured.

To find this information, use the SDN controller to verify the the correct table number to use

Here is an example of the flows being bifurcaqted at the crossroads dpid
