Network Configuration Page

In ZFSSA model, network devices represent the available hardware - they have no configurable settings. Datalinks are a layer 2 entity, and must be created to apply settings such as LACP to these network devices. Interfaces are a layer 3 entity containing the IP settings, which they make available via a datalink. This model has separated network interface settings into two parts - datalinks for layer 2 settings, and interfaces for layer 3 settings.

An example of a single IP address on a single port (common configuration) is:

The following configuration is for a 3-way link aggregation:

igb1, igb2, igb3
aggr1 (LACP aggregation)
phobos (

The datalink entity (which we named "aggr1") groups the network devices in a configurable way (LACP aggregation policy). The interface entity (which we named "phobos") provides configurable IP address settings, which it makes available on the network via the datalink. The network devices (named "igb1", "igb2", ..., by the system) have no direct settings. Datalinks are required to complete the network configuration, whether they apply specific settings to the network devices or not.
