Monitoring VPLS Configuration and Statistics for All VPLS Instances

Purpose

Display configuration and statistics information for all VPLS instances configured on the router.

Action

To display the names of all VPLS instances configured on the router:

host1#show bridge groups
 
  BridgeGroup: vplsA(vpls)
 
  BridgeGroup: vplsB(vpls)

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

SiteId

Numerical site identifier configured for the VPLS instance

Multi-homed
