Hi Ben and Jan,
Much Thanks to both of your for you valuable inputs, we've addressed almost all
the modifications you both mentioned.
Consolidating all the Inputs below are the quick updates and clarifications

In OpenFlow 1.5, that means that it should use a "flow desc" requestrather than
a "flow stats" request.
We've modified our patch as per the above comment i.e as per OF 1.5+ the
OFPMP_FLOW_DESC request is used instead of the earlier OFPMP_FLOW.
>> JAN Comment - 2) I suggest to introduce a new command or add an option to

As per Jan's suggestion we've added an option to the dump-flows for the OF 1.5
which will give an output which will show only flow stats for the requested OXS
dump-flows switch [flows]
By default, ovs-ofctl prints flow entries in the same order that
the switch sends them along with the flow description flags
Which displays the output with the requested OXS field/fields
(packet-count, byte-count etc.,)
>> Jan Comment - 3 ) The new command to dump aggregate flow stats is of course
>> a welcome addition.
This requirement will also get fulfilled with the addition of --oxs-stats
option to the existing dump-aggregate command.
dump-aggregate switch [flows]
Prints to the console aggregate statistics for flows with the
requested OXS field/fields (packet-count, byte-count etc.,)
Jan and Ben we requesting you both kindly provide your valuable inputs with
respect new enhancement i.e adding --oxs-stats option to the existing
If everything mentioned above is fine then we will share the updated patch soon.
Thanks & Regards

Thanks for the updated patch.
After a small amount of reading, I agree with Jan Scheurich. "ovs-ofctl
dump-flows" should provide similar results for all versions of OpenFlow.
In OpenFlow 1.5, that means that it should use a "flow desc" request
rather than a "flow stats" request.
