So you would like to check if a link is up in compute nodes and order
compute nodes by BW, right ? I do not think you can use OpenDaylight
for something like that that will be too specific.

One solution could be to create a new monitor, they run on compute
nodes and are used to collect any kind of data.


Then you may want to create a new "weight" to order hosts eligible by
data you have collected from the monitor.
