Meaning

Table 132 lists the show vpls connections command output fields.

Table 132: show vpls connections Output Fields

Field Name

Field Description

BridgeGroup

Name of the VPLS instance for which information is displayed

Bridge Mode

Bridging capability currently enabled; for a VPLS instance, this field always displays default

Aging Time

Length of time, in seconds, that a MAC address entry can remain in the forwarding table before expiring

Learning

Whether acquisition of dynamically learned MAC addresses is enabled or disabled

Max Learn

Maximum number of dynamic MAC addresses that the VPLS instance can learn

Link Status Snmp Traps

Whether SNMP link status processing is enabled or disabled

Subscriber Policy

Name of the subscriber policy currently in effect

Port Count

Number of ports currently configured for the VPLS instance, including network interfaces and the VPLS virtual core interface

Interface Count

Number of network interfaces currently configured for the VPLS instance

Transport Virtual Rtr

Name of the transport virtual router configured for the VPLS instance

Route Distinguisher

Unique route distinguisher configured for the VPLS instance

SiteName

Site name configured for the VPLS instance

Transport Virtual Rtr

Identifier for the PE router that acts as the transport virtual router for the VPLS instance

Multihomed priority

Priority of the VPLS instance to serve as the backup PE router for the CE device in the event of a network failure in the multihomed configuration; indicates also that the site is multihomed

SiteId

Numerical site identifier configured for the VPLS instance

SiteRange

Maximum number of sites that can participate in the VPLS domain associated with the VPLS instance

VPLS Route Targets

Extended community identifiers, also known as route targets, for each VPLS instance configured on the router

Flood Next Hop

Index number of the MPLS next hop to which the router floods packets with unknown destination addresses. For more information about displaying MPLS next hops and any available next-hop statistics, see Monitoring MPLS Next Hops.

Interface

Type and specifier of the network interfaces and VPLS virtual core interface associated with the VPLS instance; vpls vplsName in this field identifies the VPLS virtual core interface

Port

Port number of the module on which the network interface or VPLS virtual core interface resides

Status

Operational status of the physical interface: Up, Down, LowerLayerDown, NotPresent

Connections status code

Possible status codes for the VPLS connection that appear in the State field

Site

Remote site identifier

State

Status of the connection with the remote VPLS instance; possible values for this field appear in the Connections status code legend in the command display

Remote PE

IP address of the remote VPLS edge (VE) router, which is analogous to the remote provider edge (PE) router in a BGP/MPLS VPN configuration

In-label

Incoming MPLS label from the remote site

Out-label

Outgoing MPLS label used to reach the remote site

MPLS NH Idx

MPLS next-hop index number that corresponds to the outgoing MPLS label

Up-down Time

Time since the last state change for this VPLS connection
