NCA.IF(4) File Formats and Configurations NCA.IF(4)


NAME


nca.if - the NCA configuration file that specifies physical interfaces

SYNOPSIS


/etc/nca/nca.if


DESCRIPTION


Specify the physical interfaces for which the Solaris Network Cache and
Accelerator ("NCA") feature will be configured in the nca.if
configuration file. List the physical interfaces in the file, one per
line. To configure NCA to listen on all physical interfaces present on
the system backed by a hostname.{interface_name}, then list only an
asterik ("*") in nca.if.


When the ncakmod(1) initialization script is invoked during system boot,
it will attempt to configure each physical interface specified in the
nca.if file by using ncaconfd(1M). Note that there must be an
accompanying hostname.{interface_name} file and an entry in /etc/hosts
for the contents of hostname.{interface_name}.


You must reboot in order to implement changes to the nca.if file.

EXAMPLES


x86
Example 1 nca.if on x86


The following is an example of an nca.if file that would be used on an
x86 system:


iprb1
iprb6
iprb8


SPARC


Example 2 nca.if on SPARC


The following is an example of an nca.if file that would be used on a
SPARC system:


hme2
hme3
hme4


All Platforms


Example 3: Configuring NCA to Listen on All Physical Interfaces




The following example shows the contents of an nca.if file that would be
used to configure either platform to listen on all physical interfaces
present on the system:


*


FILES


/etc/nca/nca.if
Lists the physical interfaces on which NCA will
run.


/etc/hostname.{}{0-9}
Lists all physical interfaces configured on the
server.


/etc/hosts
Lists all host names associated with the server.
Entries in this file must match with entries in
/etc/hostname.{}{0-9} for NCA to function.
