Setting the Default Output Fields While Displaying Summarized Status of BGP Neighbors


Specify fields that are displayed by default by a subsequently issued show ip bgp summary command.

You can use the intro keyword to enable the display of introductory information about BGP attributes. The order in which you specify the fields has no effect on the order in which they are displayed.


To specify the default output fields:

host1:pe2(config-router)#default-fields peer remote-as state 
messages-received messages-sent up-down-time
host1#show ip bgp summary
                                           Messages    Messages
