Basic Concepts of SVF

Figure 2-5 SVF-related concepts
  • Parent/Leaf switch

    Devices in an SVF system play either of the following roles:

    • Parent switch: acts as the main control unit that controls and manages the entire system.

    • Leaf switch: is an extended device that acts as an interface card of the parent switch and connects to servers.

  • Leaf ID

    A leaf ID is the identifier of a leaf switch. Leaf IDs are used to identify and manage leaf switches in an SVF system. Each leaf switch has a unique leaf ID.

  • Fabric port

    A fabric port is a logical port that connects a parent switch and a leaf switch. One or more member ports can be added to a fabric port.
