    Display the Current SSB Alarms

    Purpose

    To determine the details of the current SSB alarms.

    Action

    To display the current SSB alarms, use the following command:

    user@host> show chassis alarms

    Sample Output

    user@host> show chassis alarms
    2 alarms currently active
    Alarm time               Class  Description
    2002-06-05 19:55:57 UTC  Major  fxp0: ethernet link down
    

    Meaning

    The command output displays the alarm date, time, severity level, and description. An SSB failure or removal generates an fxp0 link alarm. The fxp0 link is the dedicated 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet link between the SSB and the Routing Engine. This link transfers routing table data from the Routing Engine to the forwarding table in the Internet Processor ASIC. The link also transfers, from the SSB to the Routing Engine, routing link-state updates and other packets destined for the router that have been received through the router interfaces.
