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'
}

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
}

Reference

###Types

cumulus_interface

####Parameters

  • name - Identifier for the interface.
  • ipv4 - Array of IPv4 addresses to be applied to the interface.
  • ipv6 - Array of IPv6 addresses to be applied to the interface.
  • alias_name - Interface alias.
  • addr_method - Address assignment method, dhcp or loopback. Default is empty (no address method is set).
  • speed - The interface link speed.
  • mtu - The interface Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU).
  • virtual_ip - VRR virtual IP address.
  • virtual_mac - VRR virtual MAC address.
  • vids - Array of VLANs to be configured for a VLAN-aware trunk interface.
  • pvid - Native VLAN for a VLAN-aware trunk interface.
  • location - Location of the configuration snippets directory. Default is /etc/network/interfaces.d/.
  • mstpctl_portnetwork - Enables bridge assurance on a VLAN-aware trunk.
  • mstpctl_bpduguard - Enables BPDU guard on a VLAN-aware trunk.
  • mstpctl_portadminedge - Enables admin edgeport

The following CLAG-related attributes are also available. If CLAG is enabled, you must specify clagd_enable,clagd_priority, clagd_peer_id and clagd_sys_mac:

  • clagd_enable - Enable the clagd daemon.
  • clagd_priority - Set the CLAG priority for this switch.
  • clagd_peer_id - Address of the CLAG peer switch.
  • clagd_sys_mac - CLAG system MAC address. The MAC address must be identical on both CLAG peers.
  • clagd_args - Any additional arguments to be passed to the clagd deamon.
  • clagd_backup_ip - backup IP address to communicate with the peer switch, in case the peer link is down but the peer switch is up
