Interface Group

Generally, a device provides multiple interfaces, many of which have the same configuration. To simplify the configuration of interfaces, create an interface group and add interfaces to the interface group. When you run a command in the interface group view, the system automatically applies the command to all the interfaces in the interface group. In this manner, interfaces in a group are configured in batches.

Interface groups are classified into permanent and temporary interface groups. Multiple interfaces can be added to a permanent or temporary interface group to enable batch command configurations for the interfaces. The differences between permanent and temporary interface groups are described as follows:
  • After a user exits the view of a temporary interface group, the system automatically deletes the temporary interface group. A permanent interface group, however, can be deleted only by using a command.
  • Information about a permanent interface group can be viewed, whereas information about a temporary interface group cannot.
  • After a permanent interface group is configured, a configuration file is generated. However, no configuration file is generated after a temporary interface group is configured.
