traceoptions (Protocols MSDP)

 

Syntax

Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Description

Configure MSDP tracing options.

To specify more than one tracing operation, include multiple flag statements.

Default

The default MSDP trace options are those inherited from the routing protocol's traceoptions statement included at the [edit routing-options] hierarchy level.

Options

disable—(Optional) Disable the tracing operation. You can use this option to disable a single operation when you have defined a broad group of tracing operations, such as all.

file filename—Name of the file to receive the output of the tracing operation. Enclose the name within quotation marks. All files are placed in the directory /var/log. We recommend that you place tracing output in the msdp-log file.

files number—(Optional) Maximum number of trace files. When a trace file named trace-file reaches its maximum size, it is renamed trace-file.0, then trace-file.1, and so on, until the maximum number of trace files is reached. Then the oldest trace file is overwritten.

If you specify a maximum number of files, you must also include the size statement to specify the maximum file size.

Range: 2 through 1000 files

Default: 2 files

flag flag—Tracing operation to perform. To specify more than one tracing operation, include multiple flag statements.

MSDP Tracing Flags

  • keepalive—Keepalive messages

  • packets—All MSDP packets

  • route—MSDP changes to the routing table

  • source-active—Source-active packets

  • source-active-request—Source-active request packets

  • source-active-response—Source-active response packets

Global Tracing Flags

  • all—All tracing operations

  • general—A combination of the normal and route trace operations

  • normal—All normal operations

Default: If you do not specify this option, only unusual or abnormal operations are traced.

  • policy—Policy operations and actions

  • route—Routing table changes

  • state—State transitions

  • task—Interface transactions and processing

  • timer—Timer usage

flag-modifier—(Optional) Modifier for the tracing flag. You can specify one or more of these modifiers:

  • detail—Detailed trace information

  • receive—Packets being received

  • send—Packets being transmitted

no-stamp—(Optional) Do not place timestamp information at the beginning of each line in the trace file.

Default: If you omit this option, timestamp information is placed at the beginning of each line of the tracing output.

no-world-readable—(Optional) Do not allow any user to read the log file.

replace—(Optional) Replace an existing trace file if there is one.

Default: If you do not include this option, tracing output is appended to an existing trace file.

size size—(Optional) Maximum size of each trace file, in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB). When a trace file named trace-file reaches this size, it is renamed trace-file.0. When trace-file again reaches this size, trace-file.0 is renamed trace-file.1 and trace-file is renamed trace-file.0. This renaming scheme continues until the maximum number of trace files is reached. Then the oldest trace file is overwritten.

If you specify a maximum file size, you must also include the files statement to specify the maximum number of trace files.

Syntax: xk to specify KB, xm to specify MB, or xg to specify GB

Range: 10 KB through the maximum file size supported on your system

Default: 1 MB

world-readable—(Optional) Allow any user to read the log file.

Required Privilege Level

routing and trace—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control and trace-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
