As the devices connected to the virtual Network start to communicate with each other, the virtual switch on the Compute node learns the MAC addresses of the network interfaces. In this recipe, we will learn how to view the MAC address table of a virtual switch on an OpenStack Compute node.
For this recipe, you will require the following information:
The following steps will show you how to check the MAC address table on the virtual switch:
ovs-appctl fdb/showcommand to view the MAC addresses learned by the Open vSwitch instance:
ovs-appctl fdb/show br-int
