show interface

show interface—Display information about IPv4 interfaces on a Viptela device.

Command Syntax

show interface [detail] [interface-name] [vpn vpn-id]

Options

None
Display standard information about the interfaces on the Viptela device.
Detailed Interface Information
detail
Display detailed information about the interfaces (available only on vEdge routers).
Specific Interface
interface-name
Display information about a specific interface.
On vEdge routers, interface-name can be a physical interface (geslot/port), a subinterface or VLAN (geslot/port.vlan-number), the interface corresponding to the system IP address (system), the management interface (typically, eth0), or a GRE tunnel (grenumber).
On vSmart controllers, interface-name can be an interface (ethnumber) or the interface corresponding to the system IP address (system).
Specific VPN
vpn vpn-id
Display information about interfaces in a specific VPN.

Output Fields

If Admin Status
Administrative status of the interface; that is, its status as a result of the interface's configuration. The status can be either Up or Down. By default, interfaces are administratively down, and you must include the no shutdown command in the interface's configuration to bring the interface up. An interface that is both administratively and operationally up is able to transmit and receive traffic. To bring down an interface administratively, include the shutdown command in the interface's configuration.
If Oper Status
Operational status of the interface; that is, its status as a result of operational factors. The status can be either Up or Down. An interface can be operationally up if it is Interface is administratively up, the interface link layer state is up, and the interface initialization has completed. An interface that is both administratively and operationally up is able to transmit and receive traffic. If the operational status is down, the interface is functionally down and is not able to transmit or receive any traffic.
Port Type
Describes the port's function from the point of view of the Viptela network. It can be one of the following:
loopback—Loopback interface. The device's system IP address is listed as a loopback interface.
service—Interface for data traffic.
transport—Interface running a DTLS control session.
RX Packets and TX Packets
For GRE interfaces, these fields show counts of the data traffic received and transmitted on GRE tunnels. To display GRE keepalive traffic counts, use the show tunnel gre-keepalives command. To display all GRE tunnel statistics, use the show tunnel statistics gre command.

The remaining output fields are self-explanatory.
