To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.network.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.network.ce_mtu.

Synopsis

  • Manages MTU settings on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

interface

string

Full name of interface, i.e. 40GE1/0/22.

jumbo_max

string

Maximum frame size. The default value is 9216. The value is an integer and expressed in bytes. The value range is 1536 to 12224 for the CE12800 and 1536 to 12288 for ToR switches.

jumbo_min

string

Non-jumbo frame size threshold. The default value is 1518. The value is an integer that ranges from 1518 to jumbo_max, in bytes.

mtu

string

MTU for a specific interface. The value is an integer ranging from 46 to 9600, in bytes.

state

string

Specify desired state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

Notes

Note

  • Either sysmtu param is required or interface AND mtu params are req’d.

  • state=absent unconfigures a given MTU if that value is currently present.

  • Recommended connection is network_cli.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.

      provider: "{{ cli }}"

  - name: "Config mtu on 40GE1/0/22 (routed interface)"
    community.network.ce_mtu:
      interface: 40GE1/0/22
      mtu: 1600
      provider: "{{ cli }}"

  - name: "Config mtu on 40GE1/0/23 (switched interface)"
    community.network.ce_mtu:

      provider: "{{ cli }}"

  - name: "Config mtu and jumboframe on 40GE1/0/22 (routed interface)"
    community.network.ce_mtu:
      interface: 40GE1/0/22
      mtu: 1601
      jumbo_max: 9001
      jumbo_min: 8001
      provider: "{{ cli }}"

  - name: "Unconfigure mtu and jumboframe on a given interface"
