Accelerator Networks

The Networking menu enables you to manage network interfaces and allocate IP addresses  for accelerators. The Networking > Network Interfaces menu shows the virtual network interfaces allocated to this accelerator. Network interfaces join the physical network to the accelerator.  When you create an accelerator a network interface is added automatically. This network interface will be assigned to the existing physical network using a spare IP (IPv4) and will be set primary by default. At least one IPv4 address must be allocated to an accelerator's primary network interface. 

  • Two networks can not be used for one Accelerator simultaneously. Only one Accelerator can be created per network.
  • Do not use two accelerated networks for one VS.

To see the list of all network interfaces allocated to the accelerator:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you're interested in.
  3. Click the Networking tab, then click Network Interfaces.
  4. On the page that follows you will see the following fields:
  • Interface – optional label of the network interface.
  • Network join – name of the network and a Compute resource or Compute zone this network is joined to.
  • Port speed – the speed set to the interface.
  • Primary interface – indication whether the interface is primary or not.

 

Create Network Interface


 

To add a network interface:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you're interested in.
  3. Click the Networking tab, then click Network Interfaces.
  4. Click the Add New Network Interface button at the bottom of the screen.
  5. On the screen that appears, input values for the following parameters:
    • Label – a human-friendly name for the new interface.
    • Physical Network – choose a network join from the drop-down menu, which lists network joins assigned to the Compute resource/Compute zone on which the accelerator runs).
    • Port speed – set port speed in Mbps, or make it unlimited.
  6. Click the Submit button.

 

Edit Network Interface


 

To edit a network interface:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you're interested in.
  3. Click the Networking tab, then click Network Interfaces.
  4. On the page that follows click the Edit icon next to the network interface you want to change.
  5. On the screen that appears, change the following parameters:
    • Label – a human-friendly name for the new interface.
    • Port speed – set port speed in Mbps, or make it unlimited.
  6. Click the Submit button.

 

Delete Network Interface


 

To delete a network interface:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you're interested in.
