CARP interface human readable name possible?
I tried searching the forum for this, but got no relevant hits (or my searching skills are quite bad).
If you have many CARP interfaces, you would get a list of interfaces with something like this:
Is it possible to give those interfaces a more human readable name? Like for example, opt3_vip1 is the carp gateway in your guest network. You would then rename that interface (or set a display name) to "Guest gateway".
Is this something I would create as a feature request in the bug tracker?
Maybe in the GUI, but not the actual interface names. There are some places we do similar substitutions. We could add a column to the CARP status page for the interface using the user's interface name(s) pretty easily.
Hi Jimp, thanks for your reply.
Yeah, the possibility to rename the display name in the GUI is what I was thinking about. What it's actually named in the background does not matter that much to me. Names like opt6_vip4 does not tell me much, since the interface opt6 has probably been renamed to something else.
Should I create a feature request in the bug tracker? And by the way, thanks for an excellent firewall solution!
yes, you can submit a feature request (don't assign it or give it a target though).
