In general, techniques are described for configuring and managing virtual networks. For example, a distributed virtual network controller is described that configures and manages an overlay network within a physical network formed by plurality of switches. A plurality of servers are interconnected by the switch fabric, each of the servers comprising an operating environment executing one or more virtual machines in communication via the overlay networks. The servers comprises a set of virtual switches that extends the overlay network as a virtual network to the operating environment of the virtual machines. The controller may instruct the servers and the virtual switches to perform various operations, such as determining a physical network path taken by packets of a network packet flow, determining latency through the network, re-routing traffic in the virtual network due to network events, replicating traffic for multicasting, providing multi-tenant services to support multiple virtual networks, monitoring and logging traffic characteristics within the virtual networks and other operations.
