    Monitoring VPLS Configuration and Statistics for a Specific VPLS Instance


    Display configuration and statistics information for the specified VPLS instance.


    To display configuration information for a specified VPLS (vplsA):

    host1#show bridge vplsA
      BridgeGroup: vplsA(vpls)
            Bridge Mode:            default
            Aging Time:             300 secs
            Learning:               Enabled
            Max Learn:              Unlimited
            Link Status Snmp Traps: Disabled
            Subscriber Policy:      default Subscriber
            Port Count:             2
            Interface Count:        1
            Transport Virtual Rtr:  default
            Route Distinguisher:
            SiteName:               boston
            SiteId:                 1
            Multi-homed:            Yes
            Site-Priority:          45
            SiteRange:              10
            VPLS Route Targets
              Route Target: RT:100:1 (both)
              Route Target: RT:100:2 (both)
            Flood Next Hop: Index 1048577

    Use the all keyword to display address table and statistics information for all network interfaces associated with the VPLS instance.


    Table 1 lists the show bridge command output fields.

    Table 1: show bridge Output Fields

    Field Name

    Field Description


    Name of the VPLS instance for which information is displayed

    Bridge Mode

    Bridging capability currently enabled; for a VPLS instance, this field always displays default

    Aging Time

    Length of time, in seconds, that a MAC address entry can remain in the forwarding table before expiring


    Whether acquisition of dynamically learned MAC addresses is enabled or disabled

    Max Learn

    Maximum number of dynamic MAC addresses that the VPLS instance can learn

    Link Status Snmp Traps

    Whether SNMP link status processing is enabled or disabled

    Subscriber Policy

    Name of the subscriber policy currently in effect

    Port Count

    Number of ports currently configured for the VPLS instance, including network interfaces and the VPLS virtual core interface

    Interface Count

    Number of network interfaces currently configured for the VPLS instance

    Transport Virtual Rtr

    Name of the transport virtual router configured for the VPLS instance

    Route Distinguisher

    Unique route distinguisher configured for the VPLS instance


    Site name configured for the VPLS instance


    Numerical site identifier configured for the VPLS instance


    Status of the site. Yes designates a multihomed site. No designates a site that is not multihomed.


    Priority value for the VPLS instance for the multihomed site; displayed only when the value for the Multi-homed field is Yes


    Maximum number of sites that can participate in the VPLS domain associated with the VPLS instance

    VPLS Route Targets

    Extended community identifiers, also known as route targets, for each VPLS instance configured on the router

    Flood Next Hop
