CRS326 - why ether1 LED is always lit up?

Thu Jul 05, 2018 11:45 pm

I have CRS326 and the only connected interface is SFP+2. However ether1 LED seems to copy SFP+ LED state and blinks when there's traffic going through SFP+2. I'm a bit confused. When ether1 was master-port it somewhat made sense but now when there's no longer master port it's a bit... odd.

nvm for some reason it had set ether1 led indicator to bridge1 state. I think it was screwed up by update script to 6.41

haha

you have solved the mystery

I had to install a CRS326 some days ago and I stayed with the doubt, in my case i leave ether1 out of bridge for management purposes

When I realized all LEDs are configurable I almost cried.

It has actually legit use cases. As I won't use all ports for now I think I'll write script that will indicate bridge throughput meter the same way you can indicate wifi signal strength. Or CPU usage. Or some ping monitor that will indicate with leds if certain hosts in network are down. Endless possibilities!
