  • Commands for monitoring and troubleshooting—The following commands display information and statistics about the software and test network connectivity:

    • clear—Clears statistics and protocol database information.

    • monitor—Displays real-time statistics for SRC modules and components.

    • show—Displays the current configuration and information about interfaces, routing protocols, routing tables, routing policy filters, system alarms, and the chassis.
