The fundamental problem here is that there's no always-applicable way to know when a host leaves.
The only mechanism used in NOX now is a timeout. You could adjust this timeout -- the best value for it depends on how talkative your hosts are. You might also extend the host tracker to watch the link state, but that only works in some scenarios. I have also suggested that we track hosts by periodically ARP-pinging them, though I don't think anyone has ever actually implemented this. Hope that helps. -- Murphy On Dec 1, 2011, at 11:29 PM, 王健 wrote: > Hi all: > I have a question to consult you.
