1.  Introduction

   This document listed 11 test cases for SDN switch.

2.  Test Cases

2.1.  Case1

   Test Case Name:Flow entry installing time

   Test Purpose:Measure how much time does the switch under test test to
   valid a flow entry.

   Test Methodology:

   1.  Setup connection between switch under test and test tool

   2.  Remove all flow entries of switch

   3.  Add a flow entry to table 0 with a match field of TCP five-tuple
   and an action OFPAT_OUTPUT to an output port

   4.  Wait enough time(e.g. 5 seconds) for switch to valid the flow
   entry

   5.  Send a matched TCP packet to the data plane, record this time as
   Tt

   6.  Receive the packet at the output port, record this time as Tr

   7.  The result time Tresult = Tr - Tt

   8.  Iterate this test by a pre-configured number(less than the known
   maximum flow entry number) of flow entries installed already or the
   maximum number of flow entries

2.2.  Case2

   Test Case Name:Flow table look up time

   Test Purpose:Measure how much time does the switch under test take to
   look up flow table for a matched packet

   Test Methodology:

   1.  Setup connection between switch under test and test tool

   2.  Remove all flow entries of switch

   3.  Add a flow entry to table 0 with a match field of TCP five-tuple
