ATM Conditional Debug Support

ATM Conditional Debug Support

Last Updated: October 30, 2012

Most ATM debugging commands are implemented either at the system level or at the interface level. The ATM Conditional Debug Support feature allows debugging to be limited specifically to an ATM interface, to a virtual channel identifier (VCI), or to a virtual path identifier/virtual channel identifier (VPI/VCI) pair, through use of the debug condition interface command.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Prerequisites for ATM Conditional Debug Support

One or more ATM-encapsulated interfaces must be enabled, and one or more of the following debug commands must be enabled, to use the ATM Conditional Debug Support feature:

  • debug atm arp
  • debug atm counters
  • debug atm errors
  • debug atm events
  • debug atm oam
  • debug atm packet
  • debug atm state

Restrictions for ATM Conditional Debug Support

  • Only the ATM debugging commands listed in the Prerequisites for ATM Conditional Debug Support section can use the ATM Conditional Debug Support feature.
  • Conditional debugging for virtual circuits (VCs) can be enabled only for permanent virtual circuits (PVCs). Switched virtual circuits (SVCs) are not supported.

Information About ATM Conditional Debug Support

ATM Debugging Extended to the VC Level

The ATM debug commands are implemented either at the interface level or at the system level. The debug command output at these levels is not very useful when the user is interested in a particular set of virtual circuits (VCs).

The Cisco IOS XE software has the infrastructure to support conditional debugging based on various filters that are set at the command-line interface (CLI). The conditional debugging infrastructure can filter out or suppress unwanted messages from the output of any existing debug command. The ATM Conditional Debug Support feature extends this infrastructure to support conditional debugging at the ATM VC level by extending the debug condition interface command with keywords that address specific virtual circuits. This feature can be implemented on top of conventional debugging, so that backward compatibility is ensured and at the same time applications can take advantage of conditional debugging where required. However, the extended debug condition interface command has priority over the older version of the command; that is, a debug condition setting using the older debug condition interface command will be discarded as soon as a new debug condition is enabled on a virtual circuit.

How to Configure ATM Conditional Debugging on ATM Interfaces

Enabling Debugging for the ATM Interface

Perform this task to enable conditional debugging on a set of specified interfaces.

Before You Begin

You must enable ATM debugging and specify the conditions (interface, VCI, or VPI/VCI pair) for the ATM Conditional Debug Support feature to work.


SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    debug atm [arp | counters | errors | events | oam | packet | state]

3.    debug condition interface interface-type interface-number [vc {vci | vpi / vci}]


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Router> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
debug atm [arp | counters | errors | events | oam | packet | state]


Example:

Router# debug atm state

 

Displays various ATM events.

 
Step 3
debug condition interface interface-type interface-number [vc {vci | vpi / vci}]


Example:

Router# debug condition interface ATM1/1/0 vc 10/100

 

Limits output for debugging according to the interface or ATM VC number.

 

Configuration Examples for ATM Conditional Debug Support

Enabling Debugging for an ATM Interface and VPI VCI Pair Example

The following example shows how to enable an ATM interface, specify an IP address for the interface, enable conditional debugging for that interface with a VPI/VCI pair of 10/100, and verify that debugging has been enabled:

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. 
Router(config)# interface atm 1/1/0.100 point-to-point
 
Router(config-if)# ip address 10.0.0.5 255.255.255.0 
Router(config-if)# pvc 10/100
 
Router(config-if-atm-vc)# no shutdown
 
Router(config-if)# exit
 
Router(config)# exit
 
Router# 
Router# debug atm state
 
ATM VC States debugging is on 
Router# debug condition interface ATM1/1/0 vc 10/100
 
Condition 1 set 
Router# 

Enabling Debugging for a Specific VCI Example

The following example shows how to enable conditional debugging on a specific VCI. Note that when you enable conditional debugging on a specific VCI alone, the VPI value is automatically set to 0.

Router# debug condition interface atm 1/0 vc 4335 
Condition 1 set
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# interface atm 1/0
Router(config-if)# pvc 4335
Router(config-if-atm-vc)# end
Router#
