show bfd sessions

show bfd sessions—Display information about the BFD sessions running on the local vEdge router (on vEdge routers only).

The BFD sessions run over an IPsec connection between the two devices.

Command Syntax

Site ID
site-id id
Display the history of BFD sessions to a specific Viptela network site.
System IP
system-ip ip-address
