Session Description:  The ONUG board commissioned a set of open industry test methodologies and results for virtualized networking to assist in vendor selection and product procurement. To meet that request, Lippis Enterprises, Ixia, and Srini Seetharaman collaborated to define the industry’s first test methodology for virtualized networking to stress the data, control, and management plane plus conduct feature verification. IBM and Mellanox provided the test bed, Ixia provided test equipment, while Nick Lippis and Srini Seetharaman defined the test methodology. Srini and others wrote custom test scripts for this test which will be open sourced. In this session Nick, Michael Haugh of Ixia along with Srini present the first set of ONUG open networking benchmarks for virtualized networking.
