ARP and Loopback CLI

create loopback interface

create loopback interface [mac <mac-addr>] [instance <instance>]

Create a loopback interface. Optionally, a MAC Address can be provided. If not provided, de:ad:00:00:00:<loopId> will be used.

The following two command syntaxes are equivalent:

loopback create-interface [mac <mac-addr>] [instance <instance>]
create loopback interface [mac <mac-addr>] [instance <instance>]

Example of how to create a loopback interface:

create loopback interface

Declaration: create_loopback_interface_command src/vnet/ethernet/interface.c line 974

Implementation: create_simulated_ethernet_interfaces

delete loopback interface

delete loopback interface intfc <interface>

Delete a loopback interface.

The following two command syntaxes are equivalent:

loopback delete-interface intfc <interface>
delete loopback interface intfc <interface>

Example of how to delete a loopback interface:

delete loopback interface intfc loop0

Declaration: delete_loopback_interface_command src/vnet/ethernet/interface.c line 1209

Implementation: delete_simulated_ethernet_interfaces

delete sub-interface

delete sub-interface <interface>

Delete a sub-interface.

Example of how to delete a sub-interface:

delete sub-interface GigabitEthernet0/8/0.200

Declaration: delete_sub_interface_command src/vnet/ethernet/interface.c line 1224

Implementation: delete_sub_interface

loopback create-interface
