Interface DeviceContext

All Superinterfaces:
AutoCloseable, org.opendaylight.mdsal.singleton.common.api.ClusterSingletonService, ContextChainStateListener, DeviceInitializationContext, DeviceRegistry, DeviceReplyProcessor, org.opendaylight.yangtools.concepts.Identifiable<org.opendaylight.mdsal.singleton.common.api.ServiceGroupIdentifier>, OFPContext, RequestContextStack, TxFacade
All Known Implementing Classes:

The central entity of OFP is the Device Context, which encapsulate the logical state of a switch as seen by the controller. Each OpenFlow session is tracked by a Connection Context. These attach to a particular Device Context in such a way, that there is at most one primary session associated with a Device Context. Whenever the controller needs to interact with a particular switch, it will do so in the context of the calling thread, obtaining a lock on the corresponding Device Context – thus the Device Context becomes the fine-grained point of synchronization. The only two entities allowed to send requests towards the switch are Statistics Manager and RPC Manager. Each of them allocates a Request Context for interacting with a particular Device Context. The Request Contexts are the basic units of fairness, which is enforced by keeping a cap on the number of outstanding requests a particular Request Context can have at any point in time. Should this quota be exceeded, any further attempt to make a request to the switch will fail immediately, with proper error indication.
