    Interfaces

    The interface window is available from Network > Elements > Interfaces

    Figure 67: Interfaces Window

    Interfaces Window

    General Tab


    Field

    Description

    Interface Name

    The interface name

    IP Address/Mask

    The IP address and mask of the interface

    Bandwidth

    The allocated bandwidth

    Layer

    Layer 3 (IP) or Layer 2 (switches)

    Node

    The node which contains the interface

    Link

    The link which uses the interface

    Oper Status

    The operational status of the interface (active, passive, planned, down, unknown)

    Admin Status

    The administration status of the interface (active passive, planned, down)


    Advanced Tab - Layer 3


    Field

    Description

    VCI/DLCI

    The virtual circuit identifier or the data link connection identifier for ATM frame relay

    VPN

    The VPN being used on the interface

    VRF

    The virtual routing and forwarding instance name

    VRouter

    The virtual router name

    HSRP

    The hot standby routing protocol

    Encapsulation

    The interface encapsulation type

    Multipoint

    The multipoint interface

    APS Group

    The automatic protection switching group

    APS Protected Address

    The automatic protection switching address

    APS Protected Node

    The automatic protection switching node

    VLAN ID

    The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

    Aggregated Interface

    The aggregated interface (for example, ae0, ae1 for Juniper Networks) associated with this interface.

    To associate an interface with a link, modify the link’s Location tab. Click on the search button next to each Interface text box to bring up the Select Interface window. Highlight the interface you wish to associate with that end of the link and click OK.

    Advanced Tab - Layer 2

    Field

    Description

    Encapsulation

    The interface encapsulation type

    VLAN ID

    The VLAN associated with this interface, if any

    Redundant Trunk Group

    Redundant trunk groups can be configured on EX-series switches so that when the active link in the group fails, a secondary link will start forwarding data traffic.

    Aggregated Interface

    The aggregated interface (for example, ae0, ae1 for Juniper Networks) associated with this interface.

    Port Mode

    Access (SW_ACCESS) or Trunk (SW_TRUNK)

    Tagging

    Specifies the tagging type (For Juniper Networks, VLAN_TAGGING is for single tagging, STACKED_TAGGING is for double taggin, and FLEX_TAGGING can be configured on the physical interface to support different tagging types on different logical interfaces of the same physical interface).


    Right-Click Menu Options


    • Live Interface Load (Live Network only): Indicates the traffic load collected by IP/MPLSView using the Traffic Collection Manager.
    • Show Related Interface(s): Opens a table of related subinterface(s) of a physical interface, aggregate link (for example, ae link) to which this interface belongs, if applicable, and connected interface(s). The Relation column indicates the nature of the relationship (Physical/Main Interface, Sibling, Connected, Self, Subinterface, etc.) When selecting a link of this table, the bottom pane indicates the relationship. For example, for WAS3640.Ethernet0/1.6, the Physical/Main Interface is WAS3640.Ethernet0/1, a Sibling interface is WAS3640.Ethernet0/1.2, and a Connected interface is J3.ge-0/0/1.6 (there is a link between WAS3640 and J3).

    Add Interfaces


    To add an interface, click Add to open the Add Interface window. Then specify an Interface Name, IP Address/Mask, Bandwidth, and select a Node from the drop-down box.


    Modify Interfaces


    To modify an interface, select an interface and click Modify to make the desired changes.

    To associate an interface with a link, go to the Links window and click Modify. In the Location tab, click on search button next to each Interface text box to bring up the Select Interface window. Highlight the interface you wish to associate with that end of the link and click “OK”.
