Hi All,

We are using OVS as neutron plugin to use VLAN/ VXLAN. We found that OVS does multiple unicast to send the ARP request instead of sending via Multicast address. But by default Linux bridge supports Multicast.

Is there any reason behind why OVS doesn't support Multicast?

Thanks in Advance :)

I am littile bit confused with OVS. By default OVS is L2 functionality. How can it acts with L2 and L3 functionality?
