show interfaces destination-class



Display information about interfaces grouped by destination class.



Display information about all configured destination classes.


Name of a logical grouping of prefixes that count packets having the destination address matching those prefixes. Whenever a destination class is specified, you must also specify a particular logical interface, not all interfaces.

logical interface-name

Name of a logical interface.

Additional Information

For interfaces that carry IPv4, IPv6, or Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic, you can maintain packet counts based on the entry and exit points for traffic passing through your network. Entry and exit points are identified by source and destination prefixes grouped into sets defined as source classes and destination classes. For more information, see the Junos OS Network Interfaces Library for Routing Devices.
