Great. Thanks for the response Andreas.

My intention was I wanted to see if my lustre connection is being
routed thru other interfaces. I have 4 interfaces on my server: eth0
thru eth4. eth0 is used for Lustre but it seems lustre picks the best
route. I wanted to be 100% sure its not using anything else but eth0.
Is there another test for this? I know editing /etc/modules.conf will
fix it and I already have that, but I want a realtime test.
