show bgp routes summary

show bgp routes {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast |ipv6-unicast | ipv6-multicast | vpnv4 | ipv4-vxlan]} summary {vr vr_name}


Displays a summary of the BGP route information base (RIB).

Syntax Description

ipv4-unicast Specifies the IPv4 unicast address family.
ipv4-multicast Specifies an IPv4 multicast address family.
ipv6-unicast Specifies the IPv6 unicast address family.
ipv6-multicast Specifies an IPv6 multicast address family.
vpnv4 Specifies the VPNv4 address family for Layer 3 VPN support.
ipv4-vxlan Specifies an IPv4 VXLAN address family.
vr Specifies viewing routes associated with a specified virtual router.
vr_name Specifes the VR name. If not specified, the VR of current command context is used.


If no address family is specified, IPv4 unicast is the default.

If not specified, the VR of current command context is used.

Usage Guidelines

If you do not specify an address family, this command applies to the IPv4 unicast address family. To apply this command to an address family other than the IPv4 unicast address family, you must specify the address family.

To display Layer 3 VPN information, you must enter this command in the context of on the MPLS-enabled VR; it is not supported for BGP neighbors on the CE (VRF) side of the PE router.

When the show bgp routes summary command is issued with address-family vpnv4, the command will impact the behavior of PE to PE neighbor sessions and display/clear the VPN-IPv4 RIB of BGP.


The following command displays a summary of the BGP route information base (RIB) for IPv4 multicast:

show bgp routes address-family ipv4-multicast summary

The following example displays VPN routes with RD 100:1:

  virtual-router corp1_vrf   
    show bgp routes address-family vpnv4 rd 100:1
