OVS-DPDK Source build

OVS-DPDK Source build

CentOS and Oracle Linux currently do 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.


In this place the contrib/template-override/ovs-dpdk.j2 file:

type = git
location = https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs.git
reference = v2.7.0

type = git
location = http://dpdk.org/git/dpdk
reference = v17.02

To build the container execute the follow command:

tools/build.py --template-override \
contrib/template-override/ovs-dpdk.j2 dpdk
