Hi Melanie, I would without a doubt choose Linux bridge unless you want to use some very special things that OVS provides - but assuming you'll be using VLANs (or VXLANs) and considering the simplicity, stability, performance - I would go with that. Since XenServer is using it as the default, it has to be wrong! (again me, joking a bit).
But seriously, if you name one benefit of OVS that Linux bridge doesn't provide - then it makes sense (i.e. in CloudStack, if you are running some high-performance network appliances - that kind of business, you might want to use DPDK which is atm supported only by OpenVSwitch) Cheers On Thu, 15 Aug 2019 at 13:27, Melanie Desaive <m.desa...@heinlein-support.de> wrote: > Hi Andrija, > > Am Donnerstag, den 15.08.2019, 12:54 +0200 schrieb Andrija Panic: > > > One question though, why are you aiming to use OVS for KVM? i.e. why not > regular/default Linux bridge? > > > I am more familiar with OpenVSwitch and I did have the impression that is > gives more configuration options for VLANs.
