clear services l2tp destination



Clear all Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) destinations and all tunnels and sessions that belong to the destinations. This command is available only for LAC on MX Series routers.


You cannot issue the clear services l2tp destination command in parallel with statistics-related show services l2tp commands from separate terminals. If this clear command is running, then you must press Ctrl+c to make the command run in the background before issuing any of the show commands listed in the following table:

show services l2tp destination extensive

show services l2tp summary statistics

show services l2tp destination statistics

show services l2tp tunnel extensive

show services l2tp session extensive

show services l2tp tunnel statistics

show services l2tp session statistics



Close all L2TP destinations.

Best Practice:

The all option is not intended to be used as a means to perform a bulk logout of L2TP subscribers. We recommend that you do not use the all option in a production environment. Instead of clearing all subscribers at once, consider clearing subscribers in smaller group, based on interface, tunnel, or destination end point.

local-gateway gateway-address

Clear only the L2TP destinations and all tunnels and sessions associated with the specified local gateway address.

peer-gateway gateway-address

Clear only the L2TP destinations and all tunnels and sessions associated with the peer gateway with the specified address.
