Two SR Linux nodes

Description Two Nokia SR Linux nodes
Components Nokia SR Linux
Resource requirements1 2
2 GB
Topology file srl02.clab.yml
Name srl02
Validated versions2 containerlab v0.26.2,srlinux:21.11.3


A lab consists of two SR Linux nodes connected via a point-to-point link over e1-1 interfaces. Both nodes are also connected with their management interfaces to the clab docker network.


The nodes of this lab have been provided with a startup configuration using startup-config directive. The startup configuration adds loopback and interfaces addressing as per the diagram above.

Once the lab is started, the nodes will be able to ping each other via configured interfaces:

Use cases#

This lab, besides having the same objectives as srl01 lab, also enables the following scenarios:

  • get to know protocols and services configuration
  • verify basic control plane and data plane operations
  • explore SR Linux state datastore for the paths which reflect control plane operation metrics or dataplane counters

  1. Resource requirements are provisional. Consult with SR Linux Software Installation guide for additional information. 

  2. versions of respective container images or software that was used to create the lab.
