    Monitoring MPLS Forwarding Table for VPWS


    Display information about MPLS labels that are being used for forwarding. The brief keyword displays summary information for the MPLS labels.


    To display MPLS forwarding information for a particular label:

    host1#show mpls forwarding label 17
    In label: 17
      Label space: platform label space
      Owner: bgp
      Spoof check: router ERX-pe
        MPLS next-hop: 28, l2transport to ATM2/0.100
        0 in pkts
        0 in Octets
        0 in errors
        0 in discard pkts

    To display brief information about MPLS forwarding for all labels:

    host1:pe1# show mpls forwarding brief
    In Label  Owner                              Action                            
    -------- -------- -------------------------------------------------------------

    18       bgp      l2transport to ATM2/0.12 
    26       ldp      lookup on inner header/label                                 
    27       ldp      swap to 39 on ATM2/0.20, nbr                      
    28       ldp      swap to 41 on ATM2/0.20, nbr

         Interface    Owner                        Action                      
    --------------- -------- -----------------------------------------
    ATM2/0.12       bgp       swap to 801028, push 39 on ATM2/0.20, nbr                                              
    ATM2/0.100      bgp      swap to 801024, push 39 on ATM2/0.20, nbr  

    To display MPLS forwarding information for a particular interface:

    host1:pe#show mpls forwarding interface atm2/0.100
    In label: n/a, ATM2/0.100
      Owner: bgp
      Spoof check: router erx-pe
        MPLS next-hop: 27, label 801024, resolved by MPLS next-hop 8
          MPLS next-hop: 8, resolved by MPLS next-hop 9, peer
            MPLS next-hop: 9, label 39 on ATM2/0.20, nbr
      Statistics: Disabled
