cumulus_interface

Table of Contents

Overview

This module provides three resource types that can configure most types of interfaces available on Cumulus Linux.

Module Description

The module consists of three resources types:

cumulus_interface

This resource type configures a network interface using ifupdown2. The configuration for the interface is written to a file in the interface configuration file directory. This resource type does not configure VXLAN, bond, or bridge interfaces.

For bridge configuration use the cumulus_bridge module.

For bond configuration use the cumulus_bond module.

cumulus_bond

This resource type configures a network bond using ifupdown2. The configuration for the interface is written to a file in the interface configuration file directory.

cumulus_bridge

This resource type configures a bridge using ifupdown2. The configuration for the interface is written to a file in the interface configuration file directory.

Setup

What cumulus_interface affects

  • This module affects the configuration files located in the interfaces folder and managed by ifupdown2. By default this is /etc/network/interfaces.d.

  • You need to add source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* to /etc/network/interfaces to make use of the new files.

  • To activate the changes, run /sbin/ifreload -a.

NOTE: Reloading the interface configuration is not disruptive if there is no change in the configuration.

Usage

cumulus_interface Examples:

Loopback interface and the management interface eth0 using DHCP:

cumulus_interface { 'lo':
  addr_method => 'loopback',
}

cumulus_interface { 'eth0':
  addr_method => 'dhcp',
}

cumulus_interface { 'eth0':
  ipv4    => ['192.168.0.10/24'],
  gateway => '192.168.0.1',
}

swp33 as a 1GbE port with a single IPv4 address:

cumulus_interface { 'swp33':
  ipv4  => ['10.30.1.1/24'],
  speed => 1000,
}

peerlink.4094, a bond sub-interface, as the CLAG peer interface:

cumulus_interface { 'peerlink.4094':
  ipv4          => ['10.100.1.0/31'],
  clagd_enable  => true,
  clagd_peer_ip => '10.100.1.1/31',
  clagd_sys_mac => '44:38:39:ff:20:94',
}

cumulus_bond Examples:

Bond named peerlink with the interfaces swp1 and swp2 as bond members:

cumulus_bond { 'peerlink':
  slaves => ['swp1-2'],
}

Bond named bond0 with the interfaces swp3 and swp4 as bond members, the minimum link count is set to 2 and the CLAG ID is set:

cumulus_bond { 'bond0':
  slaves    => ['swp3-4'],
  min_links => 2,
  clag_id   => 1,
}

cumulus_bridge Examples:

Default ("traditional") bridge driver:

cumulus_bridge { 'br10':
  ports            => ['swp11-12.1', 'swp32.1'],
  ipv4             => ['10.1.1.1/24', '10.20.1.1/24'],
  ipv6             => ['2001:db8:abcd::/48'],
  alias_name       => 'classic bridge',
  mtu              => 9000,
  mstpctl_treeprio => 4096,
}

VLAN-aware bridge:

cumulus_bridge { 'bridge':
  vlan_aware       => true,
  ports            => ['peerlink', 'downlink', 'swp10'],
  vids             => ['1-4094'],
  pvid             => 1,
  stp              => true,
  mstpctl_treeprio => 4096,
}
