2: Members

Next, each interface must have at least one member, with per interface giving it appropriate Metric and Weight.

A good way to keep track of the members and make them easier to find when applying policies, is to use a regular naming scheme.

The following scheme will provide a good structure:


and allow you to know the setup from the name alone.


The Members tab allows you to create member groups for interfaces, to use with policies for traffic management. The metric and weight settings are used to manage traffic in the member groups.


Below the general settings is a list of selectable members.

When a particular member is selected, details about it is shown in the configuration section.
