FNIs User Interface

Flexible network interfaces (FNIs) mainly use the following page on Cockpit, enabling you to create and manage your resources and displaying information about them.

This page displays information about both primary network interfaces, that cannot be detached from instances, and flexible ones. For more information, see About FNIs.

You can also get information about your resources using AWS CLI. For more information, see Getting Information About Your FNIs.
