External bridge capability
|Description||Connecting nodes via linux bridges|
|Components||Nokia SR Linux|
|Resource requirements1|| 2 |
This lab consists of three Nokia SR Linux nodes connected to a linux bridge.
containerlab will not create/remove the bridge interface on your behalf.
bridge element must be part of the lab nodes. Consult with the topology file to see how to reference a bridge.
By introducing a link of
bridge type to the containerlab topology, we are opening ourselves to some additional scenarios:
- interconnect nodes via a broadcast domain
- connect multiple fabrics together
- connect containerlab nodes to the applications/nodes running outside of the lab host
Resource requirements are provisional. Consult with SR Linux Software Installation guide for additional information. ↩
