Severity: 4-Minor


The "show interfaces" command is quite cluttered when displaying the state of both physical and virtual (aggregate) interfaces, making it difficult to get a high-level summary of all interfaces. The "show interfaces interface full" command displays a confusing subset of interface states, when the intent of "full" was to display all state fields, including the duplicate "name" column.


Difficult to diagnose interface configuration/connectivity problems.


The administrator attempts to use the "show interfaces" command to diagnose networking problems.



Fix Information

The new "summary" option for "show interfaces" displays a brief subset of the most important interface state information. appliance-1# show interfaces interface state summary OPER NAME TYPE MTU ENABLED STATUS --------------------------------------------- 1.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 2.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 3.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 4.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 5.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 6.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 7.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP 8.0 ethernetCsmacd 9600 true UP mgmt ethernetCsmacd - true UP
