Monitoring VPLS Configuration and Statistics for a Specific VPLS Instance


Display configuration and statistics information for the specified VPLS instance.


To display configuration information for a specified VPLS (vplsA):

host1#show bridge vplsA
  BridgeGroup: vplsA(vpls)
        Bridge Mode:            default
        Aging Time:             300 secs
        Learning:               Enabled
        Max Learn:              Unlimited
        Link Status Snmp Traps: Disabled
        Subscriber Policy:      default Subscriber
        Port Count:             2
        Interface Count:        1
        Transport Virtual Rtr:  default
        Route Distinguisher:
        SiteName:               boston
        SiteId:                 1
        Multi-homed:            Yes
        Site-Priority:          45
        SiteRange:              10
        VPLS Route Targets
          Route Target: RT:100:1 (both)
          Route Target: RT:100:2 (both)
        Flood Next Hop: Index 1048577

Use the all keyword to display address table and statistics information for all network interfaces associated with the VPLS instance.


Table 119 lists the show bridge command output fields.

Table 119: show bridge Output Fields

Field Name

Field Description


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


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


Site name configured for the VPLS instance


Numerical site identifier configured for the VPLS instance


Status of the site. Yes designates a multihomed site. No designates a site that is not multihomed.


Priority value for the VPLS instance for the multihomed site; displayed only when the value for the Multi-homed field is Yes


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 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.
