How does balenaOS prioritise network interfaces?

Assuming we have following connections:

wwan0 (LTE)

How does balenaOS prioritise the network connections? Does it load balance between them or does it prioritise one over the other?

Hey @shawaj good to see you here again!

Try ip route on HostOS and check the metric value, as it determines the priority of the connection.

We made an IoT Happy Hour about Network Manager. You can see how to prioritise network interfaces here IoT Happy Hour #57: balenaOS network setup with NetworkManager - YouTube and @majorz gave great recommendations for fleet managers.
