Hi all,

I am working on P4 with the setup as provided in the
https://github.com/p4lang/tutorials. Since my experiments are causing
performance issues due to a large number of hosts/switches. There is
experimental clustering support in Mininet (
https://github.com/mininet/mininet/wiki/Cluster-Edition-Prototype) which
works with the provided OVS switches. I want to work on this cluster
edition with p4 switches. Is there any support for this in the current P4
mininet library? If anybody can point me in the direction to achieving this
goal, it would be very helpful.

Thank you
B.
