configure ports wan-phy trace-path

configure ports port_list wan-phy trace-path id_string


Configures the path trace identifier for the specified WAN PHY port. Path trace is a maintenance feature of WAN PHY.

Syntax Description


Specifies the port number. On a stand-alone switch, this value is just the port number, and on a modular switch, this value is the slot and port number.


Enter an alphanumeric 16-character string.


The IEEE default value, which has no string representation.

Usage Guidelines

The path trace message is used for troubleshooting. One byte of the path overhead associated with each WAN PHY interface SONET/SDH frame carries information identifying the originating path terminating equipment (PTE).

XFP ports must be in WAN PHY mode. To configure the mode, use the configure ports port_list mode {lan | wan-phy} command.


The following command configures a patch trace ID:

configure ports 1:3 wan-phy trace-path bear3


This command was available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.

Platform Availability

This command is available on 10G XFP ports only on Summit X480 series switches.
