hwlimits Model Interface

Interface be able to describe the hardware limits of the devices in the inventory models. Limits can be set both on the chassis and for individual modules. Since the combination of module limits for modular equipment depends on too many factors, it is proposed not to implement it and to limit the control of limits for each individual module.


Name Type Description Required Constant Default
macs Int Limit for MAC addresses
queues Int Limit for QoS queues
ipv4_prefixes Int Limit for IPv4 prefixes on routing-table
ipv6_prefixes Int Limit for IPv6 prefixes on routing-table
