This command shows basic information collected by the Node Alias feature. Node Alias discovers information about the end systems on a per-port basis. Information from packets from end systems, such as VLANID, source MAC address, source IP address, protocol, etc. are captured in a database that can be queried.
This command has no arguments or variables.
The following information about the Node Alias feature appears:
- Max Entries—Total number of the entries learned through the Node Alias feature on the switch.
- Active Entries—Number of the active entries learned through the Node Alias feature on the switch.
- Purge Time—Last time an entry was purged from the Node Alias table on the switch.
- State—State of the Node Alias table on the switch.
- Protocols Enabled—Lists the currently enabled protocols that Node Alias detects.
- Ports Enabled—Lists the currently Node Alias-enabled ports with each port's active and maximum (configured using configure nodealias ports [port_list |all] maxentries entries) number of alias entries. This information appears in the form: port # (active alias entries #/maximum alias entries #). For example, "1(2/10)".
The following example shows basic information about the Node Alias feature:
