    Configuration Output Format Overview

    The JunosE show configuration command displays the entire system configuration. For very large configurations, the show configuration report can take a long time to generate and display.

    The service show-config format command enables you to run the show configuration command using one of two formats—original format (format 1; the default) and a format that provides a much faster output (format 2). Using format 2 can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to generate and display configurations that contain three or more virtual routers and a large number of interfaces.

    The primary difference between format 1 and format 2 output is the way in which each displays layer 2 and layer 3 interface configurations. Table 1 indicates where layer 2 and layer 3 interface configurations appear within the show configuration command output when the system is using format 1 or format 2.
