slxos_interface – Manage Interfaces on Extreme SLX-OS network devices

New in version 2.6.

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of Interfaces on Extreme SLX-OS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
-
List of Interfaces definitions.
delay
-
Default:
10
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state argument which are state with values up/down, tx_rate and rx_rate.
description
-
Description of Interface.
enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Interface link status.
mtu
-
Maximum size of transmit packet.
name
- / required
Name of the Interface.
neighbors
-
Check the operational state of given interface name for LLDP neighbor.
The following suboptions are available.
host
-
LLDP neighbor host for given interface name.
port
-
LLDP neighbor port to which given interface name is connected.
rx_rate
-
Receiver rate in bits per second (bps).
speed
-
Interface link speed.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • up
  • down
State of the Interface configuration, up means present and operationally up and down means present and operationally down
tx_rate
-
Transmit rate in bits per second (bps).

Notes

Note

  • Tested against SLX-OS 17s.1.02

Examples

- name: configure interface

    state: absent

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
commands
list
always, except for the platforms that use Netconf transport to manage the device.
The list of configuration mode commands to send to the device.

Sample:
['interface Ethernet 0/2', 'description test-interface', 'mtu 1548']
