Commit Message

Jakub Sitnicki June 7, 2018, 10:38 a.m.
Add a test that performs typical operations of creating & destroying
logical routers, switches, ports, address sets and ACLs while checking
if they trigger full logical flow processing in the ovn-controller.
This way confirm that incremental processing is taking effect when we
expect it to.

Place the new test in a separate module - tests/ovn-performance.at,
instead of the usual tests/ovn.at as it doesn't test OVN's functionality
but rather a performance aspect of ovn-controller.
