bridge

Use the bridge InSpec audit resource to test basic network bridge properties, such as name, if an interface is defined, and the associations for any defined interface.


Syntax

A bridge resource block declares the bridge to be tested and what interface it should be associated with:

describe bridge('br0') do
  it { should exist }
  it { should have_interface 'eth0' }
end


Properties

  • On Linux platforms, any value in the /sys/class/net/{interface}/bridge directory may be tested
  • On the Windows platform, the Get-NetAdapter cmdlet is associated with the Get-NetAdapterBinding cmdlet and returns the ComponentID ms_bridge value as a JSON object


Property Examples

interfaces

The interfaces property tests if the named interface is present:

its('interfaces') { should eq 'foo' }
its('interfaces') { should eq 'bar' }
its('interfaces') { should include('foo') }


Matchers

have_interface

The have_interface matcher tests if the named interface is defined for the network bridge:

it { should have_interface 'eth0' }
