Customizing Show Output Formats


The output generated by the show commands can be customized by using the optional arguments described in the following table.


Table 4: Show Output Formats


format <column_name1>, <column_name2>, <column_nameX>

Displays only the columns matching the list of column header names.


NOTE: The list of column names is comma-separated without spaces.

format all

Displays all available column headers. This output is also called verbose mode.


By default, show commands output a terse set of the most commonly useful column headers.

layout horizontal|vertical

Specify if you want to display show output in a horizontal or vertical format. Vertical may be more useful for verbose show outputs. For example:


CLI (network-admin@switch) > vlan-show format all layout vertical

parsable-delim <separator>

Displays the output of show command by separating columns by the specified <separator> character(s).


For example, parsable-delim , produces a comma-separated output (CSV).


NOTE: If the parsable-delim option is specified, the column header names (titles) are suppressed from the output.

pager on|off

Displays the output as pages (pager on) or as a single scroll-able page (pager off).

Below are some examples of how the output for the show commands are displayed in Netvisor ONE CLI.

To display the select columns, enter the command followed by the option format <column_name1>, <column_name2>, <column_nameX> as below:

CLI (network-admin@pn-1) switch pn-1 lldp-show format switch, local-port, chassis-id, port-id, port-desc


switch   local-port  chassis-id  port-id         port-desc                            

-------  ----------  ----------  -------         ----------------------------

pn-1            1          0e0000e8     1       spine-cluster cluster link            

pn-1            2          1100013f     5       trunk from cluster-1 to spine cluster

pn-1            3          11000141     5       trunk from cluster-1 to spine cluster

pn-1            4          11000147     5       trunk from cluster-2 to spine cluster

pn-1            5          11000145     5       trunk from cluster-2 to spine cluster                  


To display the output on a local switch that you had logged in (the * indicates the local switch in the example below). You don't need to specify the switch-name for all the commands that you run on the local switch.

CLI (network-admin@switch-1) > switch-local


CLI (network-admin@pn-sw01*) > lldp-show

To display all the switches in a fabric, for example, use the switch <tab> command:


CLI (network-admin@pn-sw01) > switch


pn-sw01

pn-swl04

pn-swl02

pn-sw02

leaf_clust_1       pn-swl01,pn-swl02

leaf_clust_2       pn-swl03,pn-swl04

even-cluster-nodes pn-swl02,pn-swl04,pn-swl06,pn-sw02

odd-cluster-nodes  pn-swl01,pn-swl03,pn-swl05,pn-sw01

spine_clust        pn-sw01,pn-sw02

*                  all switches in the fabric


To display the output in vertical format, for example, use the command:


CLI (network-admin@pn-swl03) > cluster-show layout vertical
