Anyone have an idea what the extra interfaces are for in the MARS 110?


They can be seen via the CLI by doing a


show healthinfo


They cannot be configured so I am assuming they are for some future use.


Thanks.

They are unused interfaces and there aren't any current plans on using them.


They would be redundant as available bandwidth on the two interfaces being used is already enough for the appliance to receive more events per second than it is rated for.


The extra interfaces were part of the platform that was used for the appliance.
