Dear Song,

Thanks for your reply.

The code I am willing to contribute is self contained and there are no
additional requirements.
Then it should be okay. Thanks for your contribution!


I checked in /bcc/examples/networking there are different example codes. My
code is more like extension of HTTP filter example but rather than looking
into application header it's about extracting VXLAN headers and incorporated
VLAN and respective header fields. Then by using Kafka, delivering extracted
fields to the central server for additional actions like traffic

I hope this code would be helpful to a lot of people who want to monitor VM
traffic on data planes across data centers.

Let me know if you have any further comments.

My name is Usman.

I am interested to contribute an example code for OpenStack VLAN traffic
Any details of exactly what you want to minotor? Just sniff the packet and
if it is vlan do some accounting in map?

The example code should be self contained so people can just type a simple
command and run. It is not a good idea to have an open stack dependence.
You may have to work through it.

Regarding this can you please guide me how I can submit my code on
(Since I could not find details on iovisor GitHub page).
We already have some networking examples at bcc/examples/networking.
In general, an example is used to show how to solve a particular problem
using bcc APIs. Please first check whether bcc/examples/networking has
anything similar or not.

I would appreciate your time and consideration.
