In my previous article: The function calls about the command: "ovs-vsctl add-port, it mentions a hook point: rx_handler ==> netdev_frame_hook(). This function will be called when the packet is received. So the following diagram is for the function call about receiving packet process in OVS for the reference.

Well...it has been a busy month for me so that I don't have too much extra time do something interesting. But, previously I studied a little bit about the source code of Open vSwitcch and drawed some diagrams about its functionality. Here is the one example for the function calls about the command: "ovs-vsctl add-port". Basically the function call is from user space to kernel with Netlink. It needs a lot of time to explain them. So I only paste the diagram for the reference.
