There seems to be no specific command to show just physical interfaces next to their description. While 'show interfaces status' for IOS and 'show interfaces description' for IOS-XR are useful for this kind of thing, they list all ports, physical and virtual.
This could easily get overwhelming. For example, in an ASR1001 there could be 6 physical and thousands of virtual interfaces.
How do you go about achieving this? Do you use pipes? What is your preferred syntax?
Solved! Go to Solution.
May be try like below
show run | in interface|description
let me know is this what you looking for ?
Hello there BB, and thank you for your reply.
That is kind of helpful. But what I was looking for is a way to, let say "trim" the output of 'show interfaces description' to just physical interfaces. A way to list all physical ports, their description, and whether they're up or down; in an easily readable fashion.
