Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1312022
Infiniband devices don't show up under networking in Cockpit
Last modified: 2016-12-13 17:15:10 EST
Description of problem:
When looking at my system via the Cockpit application, under networking, no Infiniband devices are listed, displayed or monitored. My current system has 2 active Infiniband devices, ib0 and ib1. Neither are accounted for.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm running RHEL 7.2.latest with a 2 port Meallanox MT25208 InfiniHost III Ex card configured with IpoB. Cockpit doesn't display any information about them.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Cockpit and start
2. Log into Cockpit and go to Networking tab
3. Observer zero Infiniband information
Zero Infiniband information displayed/captured/monitored
Both Infiniband devices would be listed/displayed/monitored just like the other networking devices.
example Infiniband ifcfg-ib0 configuration:
lspci | grep -i infini
01:00.0 InfiniBand: Mellanox Technologies MT25208 InfiniHost III Ex (Tavor compatibility mode) (rev 20)
This PR should improve things:
It doesn't add explicit support for Infiniband, but rather lets Cockpit handle unknown interface types better. This allows us to show them all, without fear that Cockpit will mess them up too badly.
This change went into Cockpit 118 and was released with RHEL 7.3.
