show vrrp track



Display status information about Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) tracked routes and tracked interfaces.



(Same as summary) Display summarized status information of tracked routes and tracked interfaces.

all | interfaces | routes

(Optional) These options display the following information:

  • all—Output is the same as for the show vrrp track command.

  • interfaces—Show summary of VRRP tracked interfaces.

  • routes—Show summary of VRRP tracked routes

detail | summary

(Optional) Display detailed or summarized information.

logical-system logical-system-name

(Optional) Perform this operation on a particular logical system.

Output Fields

Table 1 lists the output fields for the show vrrp track command. Output fields are listed in the approximate order in which they appear.

Table 1: show vrrp track Output Fields




Tracked interface/Track Int

Name of the tracked interface.

detail or summary


Current operational state of the tracked interface: up or down.

detail or summary


Current operational speed, in bits per second, of the tracked interface.

detail or summary

Incurred priority cost

Operational priority cost incurred resulting from the state and speed of this tracked interface. This cost is applied to the configured priority to obtain the current priority cost.


VRRP Int/Tracking VRRP interface

Name of the VRRP interface.

detail or summary


VRRP group number.

detail or summary

VR state

The state of the VRRP:

  • backup—The interface is acting as the backup router interface.

  • bringup—VRRP is just starting, and the physical device is not yet present.

  • idle—VRRP is configured on the interface and is disabled. This can occur when VRRP is first enabled on an interface whose link is established.

  • init—VRRP is initializing.

  • master—The interface is acting as the primary router interface.

  • transition—The interface is changing between being the backup and being the primary router.


When the show vrrp nsr command is used on the backup Routing Engine, it displays the current VRRP state on the primary Routing Engine, which is the future VRRP state for the backup Routing Engine. Do not use the show vrrp nsr command on the primary Routing Engine.

detail or summary

Current priority

Current operational priority for being the VRRP primary.

detail or summary

Priority hold-time

Minimum time interval, in seconds, between successive changes to the current priority cost. Disabled indicates no minimum interval.


Track route

IP address of route.

detail or summary


State of route. Possible values are unknown, up, and down.

detail or summary


Priority cost. When the route state is not up, the cost will be deducted from the configured priority of the VRRP session.

detail or summary


Name of the logical interface (for example, ge-0/0/1.0) on which the corresponding VRRP session is configured.

detail or summary


Configured priority.

detail or summary


Current (or running) priority cost.

detail or summary

Sample Output

show vrrp track summary

show vrrp track detail

show vrrp track interfaces summary

show vrrp track interfaces detail

show vrrp track routes summary

show vrrp track routes detail

The output for show vrrp track routes detail is the same as that for show vrrp track routes summary.
