Known Limitations, Issues and Workarounds

OpenDaylight SFC relies on a version of Open vSwitch (OVS) with Network Service Headers (NSH). A version of OVS with NSH currently exists, but it is in a private branch. Extensive upstream work has been done to merge the NSH patches into mainstream OVS, but the work is still not complete. More information about this can be found in the OPNFV SFC design document.

System Limitations

No limitations beyond those in Fuel and Apex have been identified.
