NAME

libvdeplug_vxlan - vxlan vdeplug module

SYNOPSIS

libvdeplug_vxlan.so

DESCRIPTION

This is the libvdeplug module to join vxlan networks. Only one process per host can join each vxlan network.

This module of libvdeplug4 can be used in any program supporting vde like vde_plug, kvm, qemu, user-mode-linux and virtualbox.

The vde_plug_url syntax of this module is the following:


vxlan://[multicast_addr][/OPTION][/OPTION]

If multicast_addr is omitted libvdeplug_vxlan uses the default addresses: 239.0.0.1 for IPv4 and ff05:56de::1 for IPv6.

OPTIONS

v4
use IPv4
v6
use IPv6
port= PORT
define the multicast port (default value 4789)
vni= VNI
define the virtual network identifier (default value 1)
ttl= TTL
define the time-to-live (default value 1). hashsize=HASHSIZE set the size of the hash table for packet switching
expiretime=EXPIRETIME
set the maximum age in seconds of valid packet switching entries
if=INTERFACE
set the (real) network interface to use.

EXAMPLES

vxlan://239.0.0.1
This vde_plug_url refers to the vxlan network defined on the multicast address 239.0.0.1, vni=1.

Programs using
vxlan://ff15::3/port=12345/vni=42
join the same vxlan network defined by the multicast address ff15::1, port 12345, vni is 42.
