event-monitor backup max-size

The event-monitor backup max-size command specifies the quantity of event monitor backup files the switch maintains. Values range from 1 to 200 files with a default of ten files.

The event-monitor backup path command specifies the path/name of these files. The switch appends an extension to the file name that tracks the creation order of backup files. When the quantity of files exceeds the configured limit, the switch deletes the oldest file.

The no event-monitor backup max-size and default event-monitor backup max-size command restores the default maximum number of backup files the switch can store to ten by removing the corresponding event-monitor backup max-size command from running-config.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

event-monitor backup max-size file_quantity

no event-monitor backup max-size

default event-monitor backup max-size

Parameters

  • file_quantitymaximum number of backup files. Value ranges from 1 to 200. Default is 10.

Examples

  • These commands configure the switch to back up the event buffer to a series of files named sw-event.log. The switch can store a maximum of four files.
    switch(config)#event-monitor backup path sw-event.log
    switch(config)#event-monitor backup max-size 4
    switch(config)#
    

The first five files that the switch creates to store event monitor buffer contents are:

sw-event.log.0

sw-event.log.1

sw-event.log.2

sw-event.log.3

sw-event.log.4

The switch deletes sw-event.log.0 the first time it verifies the number of existing backup files after the creation of sw-event.log.4.

event-monitor backup path

The event-monitor backup path command enables the storage of the event monitor buffer to switch files and specifies the path/name of these files. The command references the file location either from the flash drive root directory (/mnt/flash) where the CLI operates or from the switch root directory (/).

The event monitor buffer is circular after the buffer is filled, new data is written to the beginning of the buffer, replacing old data. At the conclusion of each buffer writing cycle, it is copied into a new backup file before the switch starts re-writing the buffer. The switch appends a extension number to the file name when it creates a new file. After every 500 events, the switch deletes the oldest backup file if the file limit specified by the event-monitor backup max-size command is exceeded.

running-config can contain a maximum of one event-monitor backup path statement. Subsequent event-monitor backup path commands replace the existing statement in running-config, changing the name of the file where event monitor backup files are stored.

The no event-monitor backup path and default event-monitor backup path commands disable the storage of the event monitor buffer to switch files by deleting the event-monitor backup path command from running-config.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

event-monitor backup path URL_FILE

no event-monitor backup path

default event-monitor backup path

Parameters

  • URL_FILE path and file name of the backup file
    • path_string specified path is appended to /mnt/flash/
    • file: path_string specified path is appended to /
    • flash: path_string specified path is appended to /mnt/flash/

Example

These commands configure the switch to store the event monitor buffer in sw-event.log, then display the new file in the flash directory.
switch(config)#event-monitor backup path eventmon_backup_dir/event.log
switch(config)#
bash-4.3# ls /mnt/flash/eventmon_backup_dir/

event-monitor buffer max-size

The event-monitor buffer max-size command specifies the size of the event monitor buffer. The event monitor buffer is a fixed-size circular data structure that receives event records from the event monitor. When event monitor backup is enabled (event-monitor backup path), the buffer is copied to a backup file before each rollover.

Buffer size ranges from 6 Kb to 50 Kb. The default size is 32 Kb.

The no event-monitor buffer max-size and default event-monitor buffer max-size commands restore the default buffer size of 32 Kb by removing the event-monitor buffer max-size command from running-config.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

event-monitor buffer max-size buffer_size

ip host

The ip host command associates a hostname to an IPv4 address. This command supports local hostname resolution based on local hostname-IP address maps. Multiple hostnames can be mapped to an IP address. IPv4 and IPv6 addresses can be mapped to the same hostname (to map an IPv6 address to a hostname, use the ipv6 host command). The show hosts command displays the local hostname-IP address mappings.

The no ip host and default ip host commands removes hostname-IP address maps by deleting the corresponding ip host command from running-config, as specified by command parameters:

  • no parameters: command removes all hostname-IP address maps.
  • hostname parameter: command removes all IP address maps for the specified hostname.
  • hostname and IP address parameters: command removes specified hostname-IP address maps.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

ip host hostname hostadd_1 [hostadd_2] ...[hostadd_X]

no ip host [hostname] [hostadd_1 [hostadd_2] [hostadd_X]

default ip host [hostname] [hostadd_1 [hostadd_2] [hostadd_X]

Parameters

  • hostname hostname (text).
  • hostadd_N IPv4 address associated with hostname (dotted decimal notation).

Related Commands

Examples

  • This command associates the hostname test_lab with the IP addresses 10.24.18.5 and 10.24.16.3.
    switch(config)#ip host test_lab 10.24.18.5 10.24.16.3
  • This command removes all IP address maps for the hostname production_lab.
    switch(config)#no ip host production_lab
    switch(config)#
    

ip name-server

The ip name-server command adds name server addresses to running_config. The switch uses name servers for name and address resolution. The switch can be configured with up to three name servers. Although a command can specify multiple name server addresses, running_config stores each address in a separate statement. Name server addresses can be IPv4 and IPv6; each command can specify both address types.

Attempts to add a fourth server generate an error message. All name server addresses must be configured in the same VRF. When name servers were previously configured in a VRF, they must all be removed before adding new name server entries.

The no ip name-server and default ip name-server commands remove specified name servers from running_config. Commands that do not list an address remove all name servers.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

ip name-server [VRF_INSTANCE] [SERVER_1] [SERVER_2] [SERVER_3]

no ip name-server [VRF_INSTANCE] [SERVER_1] [SERVER_2] [SERVER_3]

default ip name-server [VRF_INSTANCE] [SERVER_1] [SERVER_2] [SERVER_3]

Parameters

  • VRF_INSTANCE specifies the VRF instance containing the addresses.
    • <no parameter> default VRF.
    • vrf vrf_name a user-defined VRF.
  • SERVER_X IP address of the name server (dotted decimal notation). Options include:
    • ipv4_addr (A.B.C.D)
    • ipv6_addr (A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H)

A command can contain both (IPv4 and IPv6) address types.

Guidelines

All configured name server addresses must come from the same VRF. To use a user defined VRF for connection to a name server, first remove any name servers configured in the default VRF.

Examples

  • This command adds two name servers to the configuration.
    switch(config)#ip name-server 172.0.14.21 3:4F21:1902::
    switch(config)#
    
  • This command attempts to add a name server when the configuration already lists three servers.
    switch(config)#ip name-server 172.1.10.22
    % Maximum number of nameservers reached. '172.1.10.22' not added
    switch(config)#
    

ipv6 host

The ipv6 host command associates a hostname to an IPv6 address. This command supports local hostname resolution based on local hostname-IP address maps. Multiple hostnames can be mapped to an IPv6 address. IPv4 and IPv6 addresses can be mapped to the same hostname (to map IPv4 addresses to a hostname, use the ip host command). The show hosts command displays the local hostname-IP address mappings.

The no ipv6 host and default ipv6 host commands remove hostname-IP address maps by deleting the corresponding ipv6 host command from running-config, as specified by command parameters:

  • <no parameters>: command removes all hostname-IPv6 address maps.
  • hostname parameter: command removes all IPv6 address maps for the specified hostname.

    switch(config)#ntp authentication-key 234 md5 timeSync 

    Running-config stores the password as plain text.

  • This command removes NTP authentication key 234.
    switch(config)#no ntp authentication-key 234 

ntp local-interface

The ntp local-interface command configures an interface as the source of NTP updates. That interfaces IP address is then used as the source address for all NTP packets sent to all destinations unless a server-specific source interface has been specified using the source option of the ntp server command.

The no ntp local-interface and default ntp local-interface commands remove the ntp local-interface command from running-config.

ntp serve all

The ntp serve all command configures the switch to act as an NTP server by accepting incoming NTP requests.

Using this command also causes the switch to re-synchronize with its upstream NTP server.

Individual interfaces can be configured separately to accept or deny NTP requests by using the ntp serve command, and these settings override the global setting.

  • This command configures the switch to deny incoming NTP requests.
    switch(config)#no ntp serve all
    switch(config)#

ntp serve

The ntp serve command configures the command mode interface to accept incoming NTP requests regardless of the global setting.

The no ntp serve command configures the command mode interface to refuse incoming NTP requests regardless of the global setting. The default ntp serve command configures the command mode interface to follow the global setting.

Using this command also causes the switch to re-synchronize with its upstream NTP server.

ntp server

The ntp server command adds a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server to running-config. If the command specifies a server that already exists in running-config, it will modify the server settings. The switch synchronizes the system clock with an NTP server when running-config contains at least one valid NTP server.

The switch supports NTP versions 1 through 4. The default is version 4.

The prefer option specifies a preferred NTP server, which will be used as the NTP server if not discarded by NTP.

The no ntp server and default ntp server commands remove the specified NTP server from running-config. To remove an NTP server configured in a user-defined VRF, include the VRF name in the no ntp server command.

Command Mode

Global Configuration

Command Syntax

ntp server [VRF_INSTANCE] SERVER_NAME [PREFERENCE] [NTP_VERSION] [IP_SOURCE] [burst] [iburst] [AUTH_KEY][MAX_POLL_INT][MIN_POLL_INT]

no ntp server [VRF_INSTANCE] SERVER_NAME

default ntp server [VRF_INSTANCE] SERVER_NAME

All parameters except VRF_INSTANCE and SERVER_NAME can be placed in any order.

Parameters

  • VRF_INSTANCE the VRF instance to be used for connection to the specified server.
    • <no parameter> connects using the default VRF.
    • vrf vrf_name connects using the specified user-defined VRF.
  • SERVER_NAME NTP server location. Options include:
    • IP address in dotted decimal notation
    • an FQDN host name
  • PREFERENCE indicates priority of this server when the switch selects a synchronizing server.
    • <no parameter> server has no special priority.
    • prefer server has priority when the switch selects a synchronizing server.
  • NTP_VERSION specifies the NTP version. Settings include:
    • <no parameter> sets NTP version to 4 (default).
    • version number, where number ranges from 1 to 4.
  • IP_SOURCE specifies the source interface for NTP updates for the specified NTP server. This option overrides global settings created by the ntp local-interface command. Options include:
    • <no parameter> sets the source interface to the global default.
    • source ethernet e_num Ethernet interface specified by e_num.
    • source loopback l_num loopback interface specified by l_num.
    • source management m_num management interface specified by m_num.
    • source port-channel p_num port-channel interface specified by p_num.
    • source vlan v_num VLAN interface specified by v_num.
  • burst indicates that when the NTP server is reached, the switch sends packets to the server in bursts of eight instead of the usual one. Recommended only for local servers. Off by default.
  • iburst indicates that the switch sends packets to the server in bursts of eight instead of the usual one until the server is reached. Recommended for general use to speed synchronization. Off by default.
  • AUTH_KEY the authentication key to use in authenticating NTP packets from the server.
    • <no parameter> no authentication key is specified.
    • key <1 to 65534> switch will use the specified key to authenticate NTP packets from the server.
  • MAX_POLL_INT specifies the maximum polling interval for the server (as the base-2 logarithm of the interval in seconds). Settings include:
    • <no parameter> sets the maximum polling interval to 10 (1,024 seconds, the default).
    • maxpoll number, where number is the base-2 logarithm of the interval in seconds. Values range from 3 (8 seconds) to 17 (131,072 seconds, approximately 36 hours).
  • MIN_POLL_INT specifies the minimum polling interval for the server (as the base-2 logarithm of the interval in seconds). Settings include:
    • <no parameter> sets the minimum polling interval to 6 (64 seconds, the default).
    • minpoll number, where number is the base-2 logarithm of the interval in seconds. Values range from 3 (8 seconds) to 17 (131,072 seconds, approximately 36 hours).

Guidelines

To configure multiple parameters for a single server, include them all in a single ntp server command. Using the command again for the same server overwrites parameters previously configured in running-config.

All NTP servers must use the same VRF. If no VRF is specified, the server is configured in the default VRF. To use a user-defined VRF for connection to an NTP server, first use the no ntp server command to remove any NTP servers configured in the default VRF.

When specifying a source interface, choose an interface in the same VRF as the server. If the source interface is not in the same VRF, the source data will be included in running-config but will not be added to NTP packets.

An NTP server may be configured using an invalid or inactive VRF, but the status of the NTP server will remain inactive until the VRF is active.

Examples

  • This command configures the switch to update its time with the NTP server at address 172.16.0.23 and designates it as a preferred NTP server.
    switch(config)#ntp server 172.16.0.23 prefer  
  • This command configures the switch to update its time through an NTP server named local-nettime.
     switch(config)#ntp server local-nettime  
  • This command configures the switch to update its time through a version 3 NTP server.
    switch(config)#ntp server 171.18.1.22 version 3  
  • These commands reconfigure the switch to access the above NTP servers through VRF magenta.
    switch(config)#no ntp server 172.16.0.23
    switch(config)#no ntp server local-nettime
    switch(config)#no ntp server 171.18.1.22
    switch(config)#ntp server vrf magenta 172.16.0.23 prefer
    switch(config)#ntp server vrf magenta local-nettime
    switch(config)#ntp server vrf magenta 171.18.1.22 version 3
    switch(config)#

ntp trusted-key

The ntp trusted-key command specifies which authentication keys will be trusted for authentication of NTP packets. A packet with a trusted key will be used to update the local time if authenticated.

The no ntp trusted-key and default ntp trusted-key commands remove the specified authentication keys from the trusted key list by removing the corresponding ntp trusted-key command from running-config.

Command Mode

show ntp status

The show ntp status command displays the status of NTP on the switch. If the switch clock is not synchronized to an NTP server, the status reads “unsynchronised” and shows the server polling interval. If the clock is synchronized to an NTP server, the status shows the IP address and stratum of the server, the precision of the synchronization, and the polling interval.

Note:

In EOS releases prior to 4.23.2, this command identified system peers with IPv6 addresses by their reference IDs (the first four octets of the MD5 hash of the IPv6 address).In later releases, this command always shows the IP address of the system peer (whether IPv4 or IPv6).

Command Mode
