Configuring Cumulus Linux High Availability Layer 2 Network – Part 2

Hi everyone, we're going to continue where we left off in the previous post, so far we have configured: MLAG in our spine and leaf switches Bridge as a VLAN-aware bridge Uplinks and downlink port as a trunk port Bonding (Link aggregation) In this post we will configure. Switch Virtual Interface (SVI) Virtual Router Redundancy … Continue reading Configuring Cumulus Linux High Availability Layer 2 Network – Part 2

Configuring Cumulus Linux High Availability Layer 2 Network (Part 1)

Hi everyone, today I just would like to share a lab configurations on one of the validated design from Cumulus Linux,  which is the Data Center Layer 2 High Availability. Cumulus Linux is a specialized network-focused Linux distribution based on Debian that run on a bare-metal network switch. The specific configuration will include: Layer 2 interface (access … Continue reading Configuring Cumulus Linux High Availability Layer 2 Network (Part 1)

Configuring Cisco Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR)

Hi everyone, today I am going to do lab configuration about Cisco Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR). NBAR recognized particular protocol and application that are running on your network and based on that you decide what you want to do with that traffic. NBAR is configure using Modular Quality of Server (QoS) Command-Line Interface (CLI) (MQC) … Continue reading Configuring Cisco Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR)

Configuring Cisco High Availability Campus Network Design (HSRP Model)

Hi everyone this my first post and it's about High Availability Campus Network Design from Cisco Validated Design. The design is one of the best practice topologies when you are using a separate standalone L3 switch as your Collapsed Core/Distribution layer device and L2 switch as your access layer device. In this topology, STP/RSTP are … Continue reading Configuring Cisco High Availability Campus Network Design (HSRP Model)
