interconnect-device (Flow Groups)


Hierarchy Level


In a QFabric system, a hash function is used to select an interconnect device to forward traffic between two Node devices. Since this hash function is performed on all available Interconnect devices, it is possible for redundant multicast streams to flow through one Interconnect device, making that Interconnect device a potential single point of failure for the redundant flows. You can enforce the use of specific Interconnect devices by using the QFabric system flow-groups statement.
