    Monitoring BGP Paths


    Display information about the most common BGP path attributes.

    The show ip bgp paths and show bgp ipv6 paths commands display similar information.


    To display information about BGP paths:

    host1#show bgp ipv6 paths
    Address     Refcount  Metric  AS-path
    0x4B311118  1                 100
    0x4C548224  1         0       100
    0x4C548530  1         0       200
    0x4C548704  2         0       300

    BGP internally maintains additional attributes that are not displayed—for example, the MED, local preference, and communities attributes.
