    1. Open a console window or a telnet window to the IP/MPLSView server. If you are not already the IP/MPLSView user, switch to the IP/MPLSView user. For example, if user ID is wandl, type in “su - wandl” and enter the password.
    2. Type /u/wandl/bin/getipconf to see the command options:
      usage: /u/wandl/bin/getipconf[-as asNameFile] [-b bwconvfile] [-baseIntf baseIntf] [-cat selected category for report] [-checkMedia] [-commentBW] [-coord graphCoordFile] [-cosalias cosaliasFile] [-delay delayFile] [-deltaIntf deltaIntf] [-dparam dparam] [-dummyNode] [-exIC] [-filter filter for report] [-group groupFile] [-greTunnel] [-i interfaceDir] [-IC ICmessageList file name] [-ignore ipaddr] [-ignoreIPUnnumbered] [-intf intfmap] [-iptraf] [-IPv6] [-isisnbr neighborDir] [-layer2CLI EXSWdir] [-LSPDir lspDir] [-mgnt] [-n muxloc [-p nodeparam]] [-noASNodeLink] [-noCPDNode] [-noCE] [-nodealias nodealiasFile] [-nodewoIntf] [-noVLANLink] [-noVPN] [-oam oamDir] [-ospf ospfdatabase] [-ospfnbr neighborDir] [-PECE PECEfile] [-policyOnLink] [-printDup] [-probe probeFile] [-profile profile] [-r runcode] [-routeInstance routeInstanceFile] [-router selected router for report] [-secondary] [-snmp SNMPDir] [-spec spec] [-srp srpTopoFile] [-srvcType file] [-STM] [-t topfile] [-vlan vlanfile] [-vlandiscovery vlanDir] [-hostdiscovery hostDir] [-vpnName] [-vrf vrffile] [-user username] [-dir configDir] [ config1 config2 ... [-tn topofiles...]
    3. Run the program /u/wandl/bin/getipconf with the appropriate command-line variables. For example, if your configuration files all have the “.cfg” suffix, then type in the directory containing your configuration files:
      $ /u/wandl/bin/getipconf *.cfg

      Refer to the tables above for other corresponding command-line options available. Running getipconf in the command line offers more options. These are listed in the table below.

      Option

      Description

      -ospf ospfdatabase (Cisco and Juniper)

      This uses the OSPF database for topology information. The CLI command used to retrieve the OSPF database is: show ip ospf database (for Cisco) and show ospf database router extensive (for Juniper).

      This option is also available from File > Import Data wizard, Import Type, “OSPF Database”.

      -ignoreIPUnnumbered

      This option is used for performance issues. This option will cause interfaces that are “ip unnumbered” to be ignored.

      -baseIntf baseIntf,
      -deltaIntf deltaIntf

      These options are used for performance issues when importing a large set of config files, and are normally not modified. baseIntf (default=8192) controls the base hash table size. deltaIntf (default=2048) indicates the delta size by which the hash table should be increased after the hash table capacity has been reached.

      -IPv6

      This uses IPv6 addresses for link stitching. The default is not to use IPv6 for link stitching.

    4. Log onto the IP/MPLSView client and go to the directory containing the getipconf output files.
    5. Open the newly created specification file and perform Layout>Recalculate Layout from the right-click menu of the map.
