Description

To help facilitate having general classes of NIC events, it'd be useful if on the ports that exist for a NIC, we had a general set of datalink properties that included the following information:

  • The primary mac address
  • The link speed
  • The link state (up, down, unknown)
  • The link duplex state (full, half, unknown)
  • The name of the link in dladm (taking into account vanity naming)

To test this, I loaded up the bits in a VM that had a nic without a port (vioif) and checked the basic topo properties matched what was there. Alex also went and tested this with mlxcx and the subsequent topo improvements for error events here which is done in 12205.
