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.
