ATM LANE networks can be difficult at times to document because of the many types of services, such as multicast, broadcast, and connection paths across the emulated LAN (ELAN). Do not be disheartened at what can be considered a deluge of configuration information. As is the underlying theme, the goal of a good network document is to provide the necessary information needed for maintenance and troubleshooting, not all the information within a configuration.
The more useful Cisco IOS commands include the following:
• show lane config show lane client show lane database show lane bus
These Cisco IOS commands will give the network manager an understanding of how the ATM LANE network is constructed.
