show process

show process {name} {detail} {description} {slot slotid}

Description

Displays the status of the ExtremeXOS processes.

Syntax Description

name Specifies the name of the process.
detail Specifies more detailed process information.
description Describes the name of all of the processes or the specified process running on the switch.
slotid Specifies the slot number of the MSM/MM module:A specifies the MSM installed in slot A.B specifies the MSM installed in slot B.
Note: This parameter is available only on modular switches. In a Summit stack, slotid specifies the slot number of a node in a stack topology.

Default

N/A.

Usage Guidelines

The ExtremeXOS process manager monitors all of the XOS processes. The process manager also ensures that only version-compatible processes are started.

Using this command without the optional keywords displays summary process information. When you specify the slot keyword, summary information is displayed for that particular slot only.

The show process and show process slot slotid commands display the following information in a tabular format:
  • Card—The name of the module where the process is running (modular switches only).
  • Process Name—The name of the process.
  • Version—The version number of the process. Options are:
    • Version number—A series of numbers that identify the version number of the process. This is helpful to ensure that you have version-compatible processes and if you experience a problem.
    • Not Started—The process has not been started. This can be caused by not having the appropriate license or for not starting the process.
  • Restart—The number of times the process has been restarted. This number increments by one each time a process stops and restarts.
  • State—The current state of the process. Options are:
    • No License—The process requires a license level that you do not have. For example, you have not upgraded to that license, or the license is not available for your platform.
    • Ready—The process is running.
    • Stopped—The process has been stopped.
  • Start Time—The current start time of the process. Options are:
    • Day/Month/Date/Time/Year—The date and time the process began. When a process terminates and restarts, the start time is also updated.
    • Not Started—The process has not been started. This can be caused by not having the appropriate license or for not starting the process.

When you specify the detail keyword, more specific and detailed process information is displayed.

The show process detail and show process slot slotid commands display the following information in a multi-tabular format:
  • Detailed process information
  • Memory usage configurations
  • Recovery policies
  • Process statistics
  • Resource usage

This status information may be useful for your technical support representative if you have a network problem.

Depending on the software version running on your switch or your switch model, additional or different process information might be displayed.

You may find it useful to capture the process information under normal operating conditions to establish a baseline. By having a baseline, if you experience a problem, you and your technical support representative can more easily identify the problem.

SummitStack Only

When you run the command with out any parameters:
  • From the stack manager or backup node, the stack displays the status of the ExtremeXOS processes running on the master node and the back-up node in the Active Topology.
  • From a standby node, the stack displays the status of the ExtremeXOS processes running on the standby node and the master node in the Active Topology.

Example

The following is sample output from a modular switch using the show process command:

# show process
