Devices page allows you to quickly list and filter virtual routers and servers defined under a given emulation.
Adding a new device
By Clicking the + icon you can start adding a new device to an emulation.
The Vendor/Model/Software Version selections will interactively narrow down your options based on the choices you make in previous steps.
Note: UI automatically shows ONLY the software version that your account is licensed to use. Head to "Licenses" page if you want to add licensing of a specific software to your account.
This knowledge base article has more information about how to enable more software versions in your account.
Uploading device config
If you provide a configuration file it will be pushed to the emulated device once it gets started.
If the emulation is unmanaged, we will only push the provided config AS IS one time after the time is up and running,.
If the emulation is managed, you will have the ability to push and pull configuration of the device later on. More information about unmanaged in this article.
Editing a device
Before a device is started, you can change all of its attributes. After the device is deployed in an emulation, you can only replace the configuration of the device.
By hover on actions icon, you will list of actions available on that specific device.
Scheduling this action will instruct Tesuto's config management engine to connect to a running device and save a copy of running device config to Tesuto database. You can retrieve the updated config by API or by editing the device and clicking on configuration file.
Fetching config is available for managed emulations and this action is only available if the device is running.
Configure, pushes the configuration saved in Tesuto database to that device.
Same as fetch, Configure is available for managed emulations and this action is only available if the device is running.
If a virtual router becomes unresponsive or you lose access to it in a way that can't regain access using console of the device, you can schedule a "rebuilt" action on that device. Please be advise this action will redeploy your virtual router from original image and you will lose all local modifications.
Device interfaces page lists all the interfaces of a given device. If a certain interface is linked to another device, you will see the neighbor hostname and interface on the same row.
You can narrow down the list to "Linked" or "Unliked" interfaces by using the filter drop down.
Creating a new topology
There are several ways you can link two routers together. Interfaces page is one of them.
Begin by clicking on the "Edit mode" icon on the top row.
After that you can select the neighbor of each interface you want to link.
UI will automatically show you all available ports on that neighbor in the neighbor interface drop down.
Once in edit mode you can simply change the neighbor and the neighbor interface of any given interface by changing the values of the associated drop downs.
To delete a topology link, click on the delete action icon on that topology row.
Select the interfaces you want to unlink and click the "Delete" icon on the top bar.
You can choose or all interfaces
