[ovs-dev] [PATCH] ofproto-dpif: Log traces when resubmit depth is exceeded.

Ethan Jackson ethan at nicira.com
Tue Mar 6 17:33:47 PST 2012


It can be very difficult to debug xlate_actions() failures due to
excessive resubmit recursion.  In an attempt to make it easier,
this patch adds a (severely rate-limited) full ofproto/trace to the
logs.
