ONOS Project launches ‘Black­bird’ SDN plat­form

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

The ONOS Project, part of the Open Net­work­ing Lab (ON.Lab), has an­nounced the Black­bird re­lease of its Open Net­work Op­er­at­ing Sys­tem (ONOS). The sec­ond ONOS re­lease, Black­bird im­proves the plat­form’s abil­ity to sup­port high per­for­mance, scale and avail­abil­ity. It of­fers met­rics de­signed to en­able eval­u­a­tion of the ‘car­rier-grade quo­tient’ of SDN con­trol plane plat­forms/con­trollers. Met­rics cur­rently used to mea­sure per­for­mance, in­clud­ing sim­plis­tic ones such as Cbench, do not pro­vide a com­plete or ac­cu­rate view of the SDN con­trol plane ca­pa­bil­i­ties, thereby high­light­ing the need for a more in­dica­tive set of mea­sure­ments.

Black­bird is de­signed to give or­gan­i­sa­tions a more ac­cu­rate view of the SDN con­trol plane ca­pa­bil­i­ties than cur­rent met­rics, such as Cbench, of­fi­cials said. Per­for­mance met­rics in the op­er­at­ing sys­tem touch on topol­ogy, north­bound traf­fic and flow op­er­a­tions through­put.

ONOS Project of­fi­cials want users to ap­ply th­ese met­rics to their use of Black­bird to val­i­date the per­for­mance, scal­a­bil­ity and high avail­abil­ity of the SDN plat­form.
