Specifying the Type of vNET Interface
The mgmt, data, and span keywords used in different commands specify the path used to connect to the network service. For example, to specify an out-of-band connection to a management interface of a vNET, the interface specifies the mgmt keyword. If you require in-band access to the management interface of the vNET, then use the data or span keywords in the specific command. The keywords, data and span, are essentially equivalent but apply to two separate paths. To maximize throughput between the server and the switch components, Pluribus Networks recommends using both. The data keyword applies to port 65, and the span keyword applies to port 66.
Each vNET can have one or more isolating zones and Netvisor ONE applies network services to each zone. Network services use a separate zone or share the zone with the vNET manager which is the zone that the vNET user logs into to manage the vNET. In shared zones, the network interfaces are available to all network services in the shared zones, regardless of the service that created the network interface.
Informational Note: This is an important concept as you can use service commands such as vnet-manager-interface-add to add interfaces to a vNET. If you want the service to be specific to a vNET as a dedicated service, then add the interfaces using the exclusive|no-exclusive parameters.
