ryu-manager is the executable for Ryu applications. ryu-manager loads Ryu applications and run it.

Ryu is a component-based software defined networking framework. Ryu provides software components with well defined API that make it easy for developers to create new network management and control applications. Ryu supports various protocols for managing network devices, such as OpenFlow, Netconf, OF-config, etc. About OpenFlow, Ryu supports fully 1.0, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and Nicira Extensions.


application module name to run

-h, --help
show this help message and exit
--app-lists APP_LISTS
application module name to run
--ca-certs CA_CERTS
CA certificates
--config-dir DIR
Path to a config directory to pull *.conf files from. This file set is sorted, so as to provide a predictable parse order if individual options are over-ridden. The set is parsed after the file(s) specified via previous --config-file, arguments hence over-ridden options in the directory take precedence.
--config-file PATH
Path to a config file to use. Multiple config files can be specified, with values in later files taking precedence. The default files used are: None
--ctl-cert CTL_CERT
controller certificate
--ctl-privkey CTL_PRIVKEY
controller private key
--default-log-level DEFAULT_LOG_LEVEL
default log level
link discovery: explicitly drop lldp packet in
link discovery: explicitly install flow entry to send lldp packet to controller
--log-config-file LOG_CONFIG_FILE
Path to a logging config file to use
--log-dir LOG_DIR
log file directory
--log-file LOG_FILE
log file name
--log-file-mode LOG_FILE_MODE
default log file permission
--neutron-admin-auth-url NEUTRON_ADMIN_AUTH_URL
auth url for connecting to neutron in admin context
--neutron-admin-password NEUTRON_ADMIN_PASSWORD
password for connecting to neutron in admin context
--neutron-admin-tenant-name NEUTRON_ADMIN_TENANT_NAME
tenant name for connecting to neutron in admin context
--neutron-admin-username NEUTRON_ADMIN_USERNAME
username for connecting to neutron in admin context
--neutron-auth-strategy NEUTRON_AUTH_STRATEGY
auth strategy for connecting to neutron in admincontext
--neutron-controller-addr NEUTRON_CONTROLLER_ADDR
openflow method:address:port to set controller ofovs bridge
--neutron-url NEUTRON_URL
URL for connecting to neutron
--neutron-url-timeout NEUTRON_URL_TIMEOUT
timeout value for connecting to neutron in seconds
The inverse of --explicit-drop
The inverse of --install-lldp-flow
The inverse of --observe-links
The inverse of --use-stderr
The inverse of --use-syslog
The inverse of --verbose
observe link discovery events.
--ofp-listen-host OFP_LISTEN_HOST
