Hardware Acceleration

Using VLANs to add more accelerated inter-VDOM link interfaces

You can add VLAN interfaces to NPU VDOM link interfaces to create accelerated links between more VDOMs. For the links to work, the VLAN interfaces must be added to the same NPU VDOM link interface, must be on the same subnet, and must have the same VLAN ID.

Note

NP6 processors do not support offloading traffic flowing between Enhanced MAC (EMAC) VLAN interfaces added to NPU VDOM link interfaces.

For example, to accelerate inter-VDOM traffic between VDOMs named Marketing and Engineering using VLANs with VLAN ID 100 go to System > Network > Interfaces and select Create New to create the VLAN interface associated with the Marketing VDOM:

Name Marketing-link
Type VLAN
Interface npu0_vlink0
VLAN ID 100
Virtual Domain Marketing
IP/Network Mask 172.20.120.12/24

Create the inter-VDOM link associated with Engineering VDOM:

Name Engineering-link
Type VLAN
Interface npu0_vlink1
VLAN ID 100
Virtual Domain Engineering
IP/Network Mask 172.20.120.22/24

Or do the same from the CLI:

config system interface

edit Marketing-link

set vdom Marketing

set ip 172.20.120.12/24

set interface npu0_vlink0

set vlanid 100

next

edit Engineering-link

set vdom Engineering

set ip 172.20.120.22/24

set interface npu0_vlink1

set vlanid 100
