Simple Switch Configuration with Chalet

Chalet is a web-based user interface for setting up and viewing information about a switch. Chalet removes the need to know and remember commands in a CLI environment. Viewable on desktop and mobile with a quick login and intuitive navigation, Chalet features an Quick Setup mode for configuring a switch in a few simple steps. Basic data surrounding port utilization, power, and Quality of Service (QoS) are available, and more advanced users can configure multiple VLANs, create Access Control Lists (ACLs), and configure Audio Video Bridging (AVB).

Chalet is packaged with ExtremeXOS release 15.7.1 and later for all platforms, so there's nothing extra to download or install. Chalet can be launched in any modern web browser and does not depend on any outside resources to work, including Java Applets, Adobe Flash, or dedicated mobile applications.

Chalet helps you interact with the switch outside of a CLI environment and allows you to easily:
  • Configure the switch for the first time without the use of a console cable.
  • View status and details of the switch and its slots and ports.
  • Analyze power efficiency of power supplies, fans, and PoE ports.
  • Create VLANs and ACL policies.
  • Enable and disable multiple features, including QoS, AVB, auto-negotiation, and flooding.
  • View recent system events.
  • View device topology (stacked switches only).
  • Manage users, including defining global and individual security policies.

Refer to the Chalet user guide (Switch Configuration with Chalet for ExtremeXOS 16.x and Earlier) for instructions on setting up, logging in, configuring, and monitoring your switch.
