Common Commands For Cumulus OS

In my previous blog post Install Cumulus OS On A Quanta T3048-LY2R SwitchI covered the installation process of Cumulus OS via ONIE, Open Network Install Environment.

After I installed the OS on my switch, I started to configure it. The configuration is basically the same as configuring a Debian Linux system. Obviously there are some additional features but compared on a high level, that’s what it basically is. The following commands should come in handy while managing your switch:

Note: ifconfig has been deprecated in favor of iproute2 tools

Eth0 is used as the management interface and swp-ports are the front-panel ports

I hope this list of commands comes in handy for some you.
