    Check the Routing Engine Status


    This section provides a brief description of monitoring the Routing Engines as part of the host module on M40e and M160 routers.


    To check the Routing Engine status, use the following command:

    user@host> show chassis routing-engine
    user@host> show chassis routing-engine
    Routing Engine status:
        Temperature                 22 degrees C / 71 degrees F
        DRAM                       768 Mbytes
        CPU utilization:
          User                       0 percent
          Background                 0 percent
          Kernel                     0 percent
          Interrupt                  0 percent
          Idle                     100 percent
        Model                          teknor
        Serial ID                      4d0000062b049501
        Start time                     2002-04-29 11:18:31 PDT
        Uptime                         5 hours, 20 minutes, 17 seconds
        Load averages:                 1 minute   5 minute  15 minute
                                           0.06       0.03       0.00


    The command output displays the Routing Engine slot number, current state (Master, Backup, or Disabled), election priority (Master or Backup), and the airflow temperature. The command output also displays the total DRAM available to the Routing Engine processor, the CPU utilization percentage, and the Routing Engine serial number for the slot. Additionally, the command output displays when the Routing Engine started running, how long the Routing Engine has been running, and the time, uptime, and load averages for the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes.

    Check the Uptime to ensure that the Routing Engine has not rebooted since it started running.
