Description

We want to see the link state (up/down) of each HDLC netdev on which we have NS-VCs configured.

This should not be queried at the time of the "show" command, but we shoul continuously have an "ip link monitor" running, which will provide us with state change events. We then update some internal state member variables as well as log any state transitions.

History

#1 Updated by laforge about 2 months ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • Priority changed from Normal to High
  • % Done changed from 0 to 50

Patch in https://gerrit.osmocom.org/c/libosmocore/+/21458

The patch currently only receives events. What's missing is to obtain the initial state at start-up.

#2 Updated by laforge about 2 months ago

  • % Done changed from 50 to 80

From v4 of https://gerrit.osmocom.org/c/libosmocore/+/21458 onwards, the initial state is also dumped. The state nicely reflects in the VTY, and we get related log messages.
