Example 1154 Checking if FA Is Enabled for the Tunnel

pls-7200a#show mpls traffic-eng forwarding-adjacency destination has 1 tunnels

Tunnel1 (load balancing metric 20000000, nexthop

(flags: Forward-Adjacency, holdtime 0)

Verifying That Traffic Is Really Going Down the Tunnel

If everything checks out, how do you know that traffic is actually entering the tunnel? You can check this by following these two steps:

• Check the interface tunnel accounting

• Check output counters or accounting on the outbound (downstream) physical interface to make sure the traffic is actually leaving the router

Before you check the interface tunnel accounting, it is a good idea to clear the counters, as shown in Example 11-55. Example 11-55 Clearing Tunnel1 Counters mpls-7200a#clear counters tunnel 1

Clear "show interface" counters on this interface [confirm]

3d04h: %CLEAR-5-C0UNTERS: Clear counter on interface Tunnel1 by console

Next, send 1000 pings to the tail, as shown in Example 11-56. Example 11-56 Sending 1000 Pings to 7200c (

7200a#ping ip

Target IP address: Repeat count [5]: 1000 Datagram size [100]: Timeout in seconds [2]: Extended commands [n]: Sweep range of sizes [n]: Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 1000, 100-byte ICMP Echos to, timeout is 2 seconds: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Success rate is 100 percent (1000/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

The next step is to check the interface accounting for Tunnell to see how many packets went over the tunnel. This is shown in Example 11-57.
