Interface NextObjective

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface NextObjective
    extends Objective
    Represents a nexthop which will be translated by a driver into the appropriate group or actions needed to implement the egress function. A next objective is made up of a collection of traffic treatments associated with a type. These types are: - Hashed - Broadcast - Failover - Simple These types will indicate to the driver what the intended behavior is. For example, a broadcast next objective with a collection of output treatments will indicate to a driver that all output actions are expected to be executed simultaneously. The driver is then free to implement this as a group or a simple action list.
