Software Defined Networking (SDN) provides network engineers with a high-level of abstraction to manage network traffic and control the associated network resources. Unfortunately, the data-plane devices communicate with the controller for every new flow, which adds an extra overhead and causes excessive delays. Such communication relies on the probability called matching probability. In this work, we propose a mathematical model for the SDN flow-setup process with the consideration of all factors that contribute into the matching probability, such as proactive/reactive flow setup modes. Finally, we attempt at deriving the overall system capacity and blocking probability.
