    Editing Show Commands for Data Collection

    In the Router Profile Type drop-down box, the hardware type that is selected will influence the show commands issued and collected by IP/MPLSView on that router. The commands issued by IP/MPLSView can be found in: $WANDL_HOME/db/command (usually /u/wandl/db/command). For example, the following are the default commands for collecting configuration files:

    Type

    Config File Command

    Alcatel

    admin display-config

    Cisco

    show running

    CRS

    show running

    ERX

    show config

    Foundry

    show running

    Huawei

    display current-config

    Juniper

    show config|display inheritance|no-more

    show ted database extensive|no-more

    Riverstone

    show running-config

    These commands are located in the file called <hardware> config (for example, juniper.config).

    If your hardware type is not listed here, or if you have, for example, a Cisco device that uses a different show command than the defaults listed above, you can set the Type field to “New” when adding a new router profile entry. Then, in the server, go to /u/wandl/db/command and edit the file new.config to include the appropriate show command.

    The same applies for collected interface and tunnel path information. These commands are located in the command directory under <hardware>.interface and <hardware> .tunnel_path, respectively.

    In some cases the privileges for these commands are restricted and may need to be adjusted accordingly. For example, for cisco, in some cases show running-config will not be available but show config will be available. For Alcatel, sometimes environment no-more will not be available but admin display-config will be available. Check the /u/wandl/db/command files for additional commands which might be restricted.
