Stratum - Enabling the era of next-generation SDN

Copyright 2018 Google LLC
Copyright 2018-present Open Networking Foundation

Stratum is an open source silicon-independent switch operating system for software defined networks. It is building an open, minimal production-ready distribution for white box switches. Stratum exposes a set of next-generation SDN interfaces including P4Runtime and OpenConfig, enabling interchangeability of forwarding devices and programmability of forwarding behaviors. Current support includes Barefoot Tofino and Broadcom Tomahawk devices, as well as the bmv2 software switch.

Build status (master): CircleCI codecov

Documentation

Getting Started with SDN / P4 / Stratum

If you're completly new to the world of P4 and are looking for step-by-step instructions with batteries included, the NG-SDN tutorial is a good starting point. For material more focused on P4 as a language, have a look at the p4lang tutorials. Finally, there is the "Software-Defined Networks: A Systems Approach" book (HTML) for comprehensive coverage of SDN. Also see the chapter about Stratum in it.

Component Overview

img

P4Runtime provides a flexible mechanism for configuring the forwarding pipeline on a network switch.

gNMI is a framework for network device management that uses gRPC as the transport mechanism.

SDKLT is used to program fixed-pipeline switches using the Tomahawk chip from Broadcom.

Source code

This repository contains source code for a reference implementation of the P4Runtime and gNMI services, that serves as the hardware abstraction layer for a network switch. It has been successfully prototyped at Google, running on production hardware on a data center network subsystem.

Development environment

We provide a script to create a Docker development environment for Stratum.

To start the container, run the following in your

stratum
directory:
./setup_dev_env.sh

The script will build a Docker image using Dockerfile.dev and run a bash session in it. This directory will be mounted in the Docker image and you will be able to run git, edit code, and build Stratum / run tests using Bazel.

For more information, you can see a complete list of arguments by running:

setup_dev_env.sh -h

If you are using Docker on Linux, make sure that you can use Docker as a non-root user, otherwise you will not be able to run setupdevenv.sh:

sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
