    show bgp ipv6


    To display information about networks in address families other than the route-target address family:

    show bgp ipv6 [ unicast | multicast | vpnv6 all | vpnv6 vrf vrfName ]
    ipv6Prefix [ longer-prefixes ] [ fields { fieldOptions } ] [ filter ]

    To display information about networks in only the route-target address family:

    show bgp ipv6 route-target signaling { rtfPrefix [ longer-prefixes ] | rtfAddress }
    [ fields { fieldOptions } ] [ filter ]

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
    route-target signaling keywords and rtMemNlri variable added in JunosE Release 8.2.0.
    rtMemNlri variable replaced by two variables, rtfAddress and rtfPrefix, in JunosE Release 9.1.0.


    Displays filtered information about a specified network, or all networks, in the IPv6 BGP routing table. Only those fields that you specify are displayed, except that the prefix field is always displayed. Default fields can be set with the default-fields route command.


    • unicast—Specifies the IPv6 unicast address family and routing table; the default option
    • multicast—Specifies the IPv6 multicast address family and routing table
    • vpnv6 all—Specifies the VPN-IPv6 address family and all IPv6 VPN routing and forwarding instances
    • vpn6 vrf vrfName—Specifies the VPN-IPv6 address family and only the IPv6 VPN routing and forwarding instance with the name vrfName
    • ipv6Prefix—Prefix that defines the IPv6 network that you want to filter
    • longer-prefixes—Displays all routes with a prefix that is equal to or more specific than the specified prefix
    • route-target signaling—Specifies the route-target address family
    • rtfPrefix—Prefix representing the route-target membership NLRI (RT-MEM-NLRI), in the format asNumber:extendedCommunity/prefixLength (for example, 320:320:524/36) where:
      • asNumber—AS number for origin of route target information, in the range 1–4294967295
      • extendedCommunity—Two-part number in the format number1:number2 that identifies an extended community of VPNs, in the format number1 : number2, where:
        • number1—Autonomous system (AS) number, in the range 1–4294967295, or an IP address
        • number2—Unique integer, in the range 1–4294967295; 32 bits if number1 is a 16-bit AS number; 16 bits if number1 is an IP address or a 32-bit AS number
      • prefixLength—Number that specifies the length of the route prefix, in the range 32–96
    • rtfAddressrtfPrefix with a prefix length of 96; representing the route-target membership NLRI (RT-MEM-NLRI), in the format asNumber:extendedCommunity (for example, 320:320:524 or 320:
    • fields—Displays only the specified fields; the display order of the fields is hard-coded and not affected by the order in which you enter them
    • fieldOptions—Fields to be displayed, in the format
      all | [ afi | aggregator | as-path | atomic-aggregate | best | clusters | communities | extended-communities | imported | intro | in-label | loc-pref | med | next-hop | next-hop-cost | origin | originator-id | out-label | peer | peer-type | rd | safi | stale | unknown-types | weight ]*

      For peers, all described options are available. For peer groups, all options are available except the following:

      best | imported | intro | next-hop-cost | peer | peer-type | stale | weight

      • all—All available information; not recommended, because this information for each network does not fit on a single line and is difficult to read
      • afi—Address family identifier
      • aggregator—AS number and IP address of aggregator
      • as-path—AS path through which this route bas been advertised
      • atomic-aggregate—Whether the atomic aggregate attribute is present
      • best—Whether this is the best route for the prefix
      • clusters—List of cluster IDs through which the route has been advertised
      • communities—Community number associated with the route
      • extended-communities—Extended community
      • imported—Whether the route was imported
      • intro—Introductory information about the state of various BGP attributes; this information is displayed only if you specify this keyword
      • in-label—MPLS label for the route; the label received with incoming MPLS frames; typically, but not always, this is the label advertised to MP-BGP peers
      • loc-pref—Local preference for the route
      • med—Multiexit discriminator for the route
      • next-hop—IP address of the next router that is used when forwarding a packet to the destination network
      • next-hop-cost—Whether the indirect next hop of the route is unreachable, if not, displays IGP cost to the indirect next hop
      • origin—Origin of the route
      • originator-id—Router ID of the router in the local AS that originated the route
      • out-label—MPLS label for the route; the label sent with outgoing MPLS frames; also the label received from MP-BGP peer; typically, but not always, this is the label received from MP-BGP peers
      • peer—IP address of BGP peer from which route was learned
      • peer-type—Type of BGP peer: internal, external, or confederation
      • rd—Route distinguisher
      • safi—Subsequent address family identifier
      • stale—Route that has gone stale due to peer restart
      • unknown-types—Attribute codes for unknown path attributes
      • weight—Weight of the route
      • *—Indicates that one or more parameters can be repeated multiple times in a list in the command line
    • filter—See Filtering show Commands
