bond

Use the bond InSpec audit resource to test a logical, bonded network interface (i.e. “two or more network interfaces aggregated into a single, logical network interface”). On Linux platforms, any value in the /proc/net/bonding directory may be tested.


Syntax

A bond resource block declares a bonded network interface, and then specifies the properties of that bonded network interface to be tested:

describe bond('name') do
  it { should exist }
end

where

  • 'name' is the name of the bonded network interface
  • { should exist } is a valid matcher for this resource


Property Examples

The following examples show how to use this InSpec audit resource.

content

The content matcher tests if contents in the file that defines the bonded network interface match the value specified in the test. The values of the content matcher are arbitrary.

its('content') { should match('value') }

interfaces

The interfaces matcher tests if the named secondary interfaces are available.

its('interfaces') { should eq ['eth0', 'eth1', ...] }

mode

The mode matcher tests the Bonding Mode.

its('mode') { should eq 'IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation' }

params

The params matcher tests arbitrary parameters for the bonded network interface.

its('params') { should eq 'value' }

Test if eth0 is a secondary interface for bond0

describe bond('bond0') do
  it { should exist }
  it { should have_interface 'eth0' }
end

Test parameters for bond0

describe bond('bond0') do
  its('mode') { should eq 'IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation' }
  its('Transmit Hash Policy') { should eq 'layer3+4 (1)' }
  its('MII Status') { should eq 'up' }
  its('MII Polling Interval (ms)') { should eq '100' }
  its('Up Delay (ms)') { should eq '0' }
  its('Down Delay (ms)') { should eq '0' }
end


Matchers

For a full list of available matchers, please visit our matchers page.

exist

The exist matcher tests if the bonded network interface is available:

it { should exist }

have_interface

The have_interface matcher tests if the bonded network interface has one (or more) secondary interfaces:

it { should have_interface }
