    Viewing Craft Interface Information from the Command Line


    To view the craft interface information from the command line.

    If the craft interface fails, you can still display the craft interface information from the CLI. The values reflect what would be visible if the craft interface were operating normally.


    To display craft interface information, use the following command:

    user@host> show chassis craft-interface

    Sample Output

    user@host> show chassis craft-interface
    WARNING: Front panel not present.  The following values
             reflect what would be currently visible.
    Red alarm:     LED on, relay on
    Yellow alarm:  LED on, relay on
    Host OK LED:   On
    Host fail LED: Off
    FPCs     0  1  2  3
    Green    .  .  *  *
    Red      .  .  .  .
    LCD screen:
         |myrouter            |
         |2 Alarms active     |
         |R: fxp0: link down  |
         |Y: Bchip uCode ovflw|


    The command output displays the information that is currently displayed on the craft interface, including the alarm indicator status, the component status, and the alarm messages currently displayed on the LCD display. The command output is for an M20 router. A craft interface failure generates a red alarm, and you see an fpx0: link down alarm in the LCD screen output. The fpx0 interface or the Ethernet management interface provides an out-of-band method of connecting to the router from the craft interface.
