    Tracing VRRP Operations

    To trace VRRP operations, include the traceoptions statement at the [edit protocols vrrp] hierarchy level.

    By default, VRRP logs the error, data carrier detect (DCD) configuration, and routing socket events in a file in the /var/log directory. By default, this file is named /var/log/vrrpd. The default file size is 1 megabyte (MB), and three files are created before the first one gets overwritten.

    To change the configuration of the logging file, include the traceoptions statement at the [edit protocols vrrp] hierarchy level:

    [edit protocols vrrp]
    traceoptions {file filename <files number> <match regular-expression> <microsecond-stamp> <size size> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;flag flag;no-remote-trace;}
    flag flag;

    You can specify the following VRRP tracing flags:

    • all—Trace all VRRP operations.
    • database—Trace all database changes.
    • general—Trace all general events.
    • interfaces—Trace all interface changes.
    • normal—Trace all normal events.
    • packets—Trace all packets sent and received.
    • state—Trace all state transitions.
    • timer—Trace all timer events.
