    Logical Network question

      I created a logical network on one of my OVS 3.1 servers, but I'm not sure how to use it. I already have a standard network created for my VMs but I thought that I could use a logical network for the VMs on one physical server to all talk to each other more efficiently. I just don't know how to make that actually happen.

      After I created the logical network my VMs on that server all created an eth1 device. I haven't done anything to further configure eth1 on those VMs and I'm not sure what I should do. Has anyone used a logical network in OVS effectively?

      Here's an example of the ifconfig output for eth1 on one of my VMs:
      eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:21:F6:AA:00:19
      inet6 addr: fe80::221:f6ff:feaa:19/64 Scope:Link
