Show commands displays configuration settings and statistical information. Use this command to view the current running configuration as well as the start-up configuration. The show command also displays the current context configuration.

This chapter describes the 'show' CLI commands used in the USER EXEC, PRIV EXEC, and GLOBAL CONFIG modes. Commands entered in either USER EXEC mode or PRIV EXEC mode are referred to as EXEC mode commands. If a user or privilege is not specified, the referenced command can be entered in either mode.

This chapter also describes the ‘show' commands in the ‘GLOBAL CONFIG' mode. The commands can be entered in all three modes, except commands like file, IP access list statistics, MAC access list statistics, and upgrade statistics, which cannot be entered in the USER EXEC mode.
