Section "About network isolation" contains also ovs-ofctl dump-flows reports.

In the example above we see that the namespace interface “tap26c9b807-7c” has vlan tag 1 assigned to it, if we examine OVS we see that it has flows which modify VLAN tag 1 to VLAN tag 1000 when a packet goes to the VM network on eth2 and vice versa. We can see this using the dump-flows command on OVS for packets going to the VM network we see the modification done on br-eth2:

#  ovs-ofctl dump-flows br-eth2

For packets coming from the interface to the namespace we see the following modification:

#  ovs-ofctl dump-flows br-int
