Switch Network

Now if we agree that Web Interface is good stuff, then the next problem arises: Web and Switch doesn’t seem to go together. When we talk of web applications, we talk of cloud and big servers and load balancers and lot of fire power. But if a switch has to host it, then it’s a small piece of hardware, already doing a lot. There are embedded constraints on CPU and memory. So in a nutshell, it is tricky to develop web interface as it requires a web server to run on an ethernet switch which has limited resources.

Good news is that there are frameworks and methods to address this concern and make a lightweight web server, which can work on the switch. 

Another important concept that’s needed for web interface development is to understand the ports of managed switch and what to use when. SNMP & CLI are usually bundled with network switch binary. To flash binary on a switch one needs console port. To run a web server on switch, one needs to use Management port.
