Thanks for the information. We are using OF1.3, (10K) Add/Delete come into
OVS as a individual flowmod.

Currently I have three versions in our lab

(1) OVS 2.4.1 -- issue is seen, I am still trying to get 'perf' running on
that system. Once I have it running I will post more details.
(2) OVS 2.5.x -- Using this version with DPDK for other things
(3) OVS 2.9.90 -- Currently testing for vhost-virtio functionality

Do you think OVS 2.5.x might be better suited for large number of
individual flowmods or you recommend 2.9.90?
