Viewing Interface Status Details

You can use the monitoring functionality to view interface status or to monitor interface bandwidth utilization and traffic statistics on the device. When you view the interface status for a particular service, all the interfaces configured on the different devices associated the service are retrieved and displayed. The operational status of the interface, the encapsulation type configured for the interface, and the VLAN ID specified for the interface enable you to determine whether any changes are needed to the interface settings to correct discrepancies with services and traffic forwarding.

To view interface status details:

  1. From the View selector, select Service View. The functionalities that you can configure in this view are displayed on the View pane.
  2. Click the Monitor mode icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The workspaces that are applicable to this mode are displayed on the Tasks pane.
  3. From the Service View pane, select the type of service for which you want to view interface status information. The service statistical details are displayed in the middle pane.
  4. From the Tasks pane, which is displayed on the right, select Tasks > Show Interface Status. A graphical view and a tabular view of interface configuration details are displayed.

    You can also open the Interface Traffic Status dialog box by selecting Troubleshoot > Service Audit from the Tasks pane for a specific service.


    Viewing interface information is valid on an E-Line service with unmanaged endpoints. However, the task results are shown only for the managed endpoint. Unmanaged endpoints are not listed in the table.

    This operation is equivalent to the show interface command that you can run from the Junos OS CLI interface. The following interface information is displayed in a tabular form:

    • Device Name—Name of the Device

    • Interface—Name of the UNI interface

    • Interface Status—Operational status of the interface: Up, Down

    • Physical Encapsulation—Physical encapsulation configured on the Interface

    • Logical Encapsulation—Logical encapsulation configured on the interface; else it is not applicable

    • Vlan Id—VLAN ID of the logical unit number of the interface; else it is not applicable

    • Inner Vlan Id—Inner VLAN or customer VLAN tag of the interface; else it is not applicable

    • Port Mode—Operating mode for an interface can be one of the following:

      • access—In this mode, the interface can be in a single VLAN only. Access interfaces typically connect to single network devices such as PCs, printers, IP telephones, and IP cameras.

      • tagged-access—In this mode, the interface can accept tagged packets from one access device. Tagged-access interfaces typically connect to servers running Virtual machines using VEPA technology.

      • trunk—In this mode, the interface can be in multiple VLANs and accept tagged packets from multiple devices. Trunk interfaces typically connect to other switches and to routers on the LAN.

      • NA—Not applicable
