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:

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.
