ODL-SDNi User Guide


This user guide will help to setup the ODL-SDNi application.


SDNiAggregator, SDNi API, SDNiWrapper, and SDNiUI are the four components in ODL-SDNi App:

  • SDNiAggregator: Connects with switch, topology, hosttracker managers of controller to get the topology and other related data.
  • SDNi REST API: It is a part of controller northbound, which gives the required information by quering SDNiAggregator through RESTCONF.
  • SDNiWrapper: This component uses the SDNi REST API and gathers the information required to be shared among controllers.
  • SDNiUI:This component displays all the SDN controllers which are connected to each other.


To work with multiple controllers, change some of the configuration in config.ini file. For example change the listening port of one controller to 6653 and other controller to 6663 in /root/controller/opendaylight/distribution/opendaylight/target/distribution.opendaylight-osgipackage/opendaylight/configuration/config.ini (i.e., of.listenPort=6653).

OpenFlow related system parameters.

TCP port on which the controller is listening (default 6633) of.listenPort=6653
