show ipstats

show ipstats {ipv4} {vlan name | vr vrname}

Description

Displays IP statistics for the switch CPU or for a particular VLAN.

Syntax Description

name Specifies a VLAN name.
vrname Specifies a VR or VRF.

Default

N/A.

Usage Guidelines

This command only shows statistics of the CPU-handled packets. Not all packets are handled by the CPU.

If you do not specify a VR or VRF, the command applies to the current VR context.

The fields displayed in the show ipstats command are defined in the following tables.
