Abstract

The separation of control plane and data plane in Software Defined Network (SDN) makes it flexible to control the network behavior, while also causes some inconveniences to the link failure recovery due to the delay between fail point and the controller. To avoid delay and packet loss, pre-defined backup paths are used to reroute the disrupted flows when failure occurs. However, it may introduce large overhead to build and maintain these backup paths and is hard to dynamically construct backup paths according to the network status so as to avoid congestion during rerouting process. In order to realize congestion aware fast link failure recovery, this paper proposes a novel method which installs multi backup paths for every link via source routing and per-hop-tags and spread flows into different paths at fail point to avoid congestion. We carry out experiments and simulations to evaluate the performance of the method and the results demonstrate that our method can achieve congestion aware fast link failure recovery in SDN with a very low overhead.
