High-Speed Network

Introduction

A high-speed network is an internal network among BMSs and shares the same physical plane with VPC. After you create a high-speed network on the management console, the system will create a dedicated VLAN sub-interface in the BMS OS for network data communication. It uses the 10 Gbit/s port. A high-speed network has only east-west traffic and supports only communication at layer 2 because it does not support layer 3 routing.

For details about how to configure high-speed networks, see section Managing High-Speed Networks.

View High-Speed Networks

You can view the network interfaces of a high-speed network on the NICs tab page of the BMS details page shown in Figure 1. You can also locate the VLAN sub-interfaces or bond interfaces in the Linux OS based on the allocated IP address.

Figure 1 Viewing NICs

Take SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4 as an example. Log in to the OS and determine that ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1, ifcfg-bond0, ifcfg-bond0.2976, ifcfg-bond0.3056, and ifcfg-bond0.3057 in the /etc/sysconfig/network directory are configuration files of high-speed NICs.

The following figures show the NIC and bond configuration information.
