Can the management interfaces of AR routers transfer service data

The management interfaces of AR routers (such as the console interface, MiniUSB interface, and MEth interface) do not transfer service data.
Management interfaces are used for local maintenance and management in general and cannot bear service traffic. Therefore, do not use management interfaces in networking. The reasons are described as follows: 1. The performance of management interfaces is not high enough to bear service traffic. 2. Many services cannot run on management interfaces because the processing flows of the management interface and the service interface are different.
In addition, interfaces with the management mark on the panel are management network interfaces. These interfaces are the same as normal service network interfaces except for being used to load system files or configuration files in the BootROM menu.
