SVF Configuration Management Introduction

SVF Configuration Management Introduction

This section describes the definition, functions, application restrictions, and key indicators of SVF configuration management.


eSight provides unified device management, unified user management, and service configuration management for SVF.


Super virtual fabric (SVF) is a vertical virtualization technology that virtualizes devices at the core, aggregation, and access layers into one device for centralized device management. This reduces the number of managed devices, simplifies operation and maintenance (O&M) scenarios, and improves O&M efficiency.

Administrators can manage the SVF capabilities of agile switches and CE switches to implement device monitoring, user management, and service deployment on SVF networks.

Unified Device Monitoring

eSight treats an SVF network as one device to uniformly manage and monitor wired and wireless devices on the network.

An SVF network is displayed as one device in the topology and panel, which facilitates centralized management of device running information and alarms on the entire network. The information includes the running status of parent and client devices and connection status of links between SVF members.

Unified User Management

Administrators can uniformly manage wired and wireless users connected to SVF networks. They can also view the ASs to which wired users connect and the APs to which wireless users connect, and perform fault diagnosis for wireless users.

SVF Configuration Management

  • Template Management

    Administrators can create, modify, and delete SVF service templates.

  • Service Configuration

    eSight provides three configuration matrices to instruct users to quickly deploy SVF services, the matrices are SVF system configuration matrix, SVF port configuration matrix, and SVF maintenance and configuration matrix.

Application Restrictions

  • Network configuration adjustment may cause network interruption and must be performed during off-peak hours to avoid affecting network services.
  • Service configuration data is planned on eSight and then applied to devices in batches. If you use other methods to modify device configuration, the configuration on the eSight may be inconsistent with that on devices.
  • Only configuration using service templates is supported. If the AS stays in independent configuration mode, switch it to the service template mode.
  • The service template must be configured correctly. Otherwise, provisioning of SVF configuration data may make the AS go offline unexpectedly.
  • If the AS is connected to the root device through a service port, run the stp disable command in the service port view. Otherwise, the root device will be disconnected from eSight when the SVF enabling template is delivered. If the AS is connected to the root device through a management port, this problem does not occur.
