The first three lines after the initial prompt tell you if MLS is enabled on this Catalyst and the configured aging timers. The next two lines indicate the flow mask currently in use and if a minimum flow mask has been configured. The Total packets switched and Active shortcuts lines can be very useful for keeping track of the amount of shortcut switching being performed and the size of your shortcut cache (as mentioned earlier, it is best to keep this value below 32,000 entries or current versions of the NFFC). The next three lines report the status of NetFlow Data Export, a feature that is discussed later. The bottom section lists all of the known routers, their XTAG values, and a list of the MAC addresses and VLANs.
