show mac-vrf forwarding global-information



Display global process and configuration information about the MAC-VRF subsystems.


We've implemented the show mac-vrf commands on all supported platforms. If a particular platform doesn't support a specific sub-command or option, when you run the command, the output is empty. For example, show mac-vrf forwarding age is available only on MX Series platforms. If you run that command on any other supported platform, the output is empty.


This command has no options.

Additional Information

On MX Series routers and the EX9200 line of switches, this command is an alias for the show l2-learning global-information command.

On QFX Series switches, this command is an alias for the show ethernet-switching global-information command.
