Monitoring IPv6 Local Pools for DHCP Prefix Delegation By All Configured Pools

Purpose

Display a summary of all the IPv6 local address pools configured on a virtual router, along with the prefix ranges in each of those pools, total number of prefixes that can be allocated to clients, and the number of prefixes that are in use by clients.

Action

To display information about all the IPv6 local address pools configured on a virtual router:

host1#show ipv6 local pool
