Running a Mininet topology simulation, generating logs, and monitoring the flow table

In order to further explain how MiniEdit runs a simulation, we will run the simulation of the given preceding topology. In this simulation, we will monitor the flow of traffic using Wireshark; the flow table will also be monitored on the OpenFlow enables switch, and to achieve this, we shall be pinging from host 1 to host 2. The steps taken are listed as follows and the figure shows the captured result:

  1. Click on Run at the bottom of the page to start the simulation process.
  2. Right-click on the host 1 (h1), open the terminal and type the sudo wireshark & command to open the Wireshark packet monitor.
  3. In the Wireshark filter pane, input of to filter just the ...
