Configure Clustering

A cluster consists of multiple GigaVUE‑OS nodes operating as a unified fabric such that packets entering the cluster on one node can be sent to a destination port on any other node. You set up packet distribution using the standard box ID/slot ID/port ID format, allowing maps to distribute traffic to any port in the cluster. The nodes in a cluster must belong to the same software version.

The configuration examples for clustering is described in the following sections:
