Package mininet

Emulator for rapid prototyping of Software Defined Networks


Mininet emulates a complete network of hosts, links, and switches on a single
machine. To create a sample two-host, one-switch network, just run: 'sudo mn'

Mininet is useful for interactive development, testing, and demos, especially
those using OpenFlow and SDN. OpenFlow-based network controllers prototyped
in Mininet can usually be transferred to hardware with minimal changes for
full line-rate execution.

Version: 2.3.1~b4
