Release
Modification

12.1(13)

The commands show tech-support modem (for the Cisco AS5300 and AS5800 access servers) and show tech-support spe (for the Cisco AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850 access servers) were introduced.

12.2(11)T

The commands were migrated to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(11)T.


This document describes the Asynchronous Line Monitoring feature and includes the following sections:

Feature Overview

When information was required to troubleshoot a problem with modems in the field before these commands were introduced, customers were asked to send the output of a number of Cisco IOS EXEC commands. Collecting this data is cumbersome for both customers and the engineers requesting the information. The show tech-support modem and show tech-support spe commands allow customers to collect an extensive report detailing modem functionality by entering a single command.

Benefits

The show tech-support modem and show tech-support spe commands are useful to the Cisco customer and Cisco customer support personnel alike. For example, when a quality assurance technician gathers troubleshooting information, rather than typing in a series of commands, the technician can simply add the output of the show tech-support modem and show tech-support spe command to his report. Development engineers can then have a consistent output for reference when troubleshooting problems.

Restrictions

The show tech-support modem and show tech-support spe commands are available on Cisco AS5300, AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850 platforms that support the modem ISDN channel aggregation (MICA technologies) and NextPort service processing element (SPE) modems.

Determining Platform Support Through Cisco Feature Navigator

Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets that support specific platforms. To get updated information regarding platform support for this feature, access Cisco Feature Navigator. Cisco Feature Navigator dynamically updates the list of supported platforms as new platform support is added for the feature.

Cisco Feature Navigator is a web-based tool that enables you to quickly determine which Cisco IOS software images support a specific set of features and which features are supported in a specific Cisco IOS image. You can search by feature or release. Under the release section, you can compare releases side by side to display both the features unique to each software release and the features in common.

To access Cisco Feature Navigator, you must have an account on Cisco.com. If you have forgotten or lost your account information, send a blank e-mail to cco-locksmith@cisco.com. An automatic check will verify that your e-mail address is registered with Cisco.com. If the check is successful, account details with a new random password will be e-mailed to you. Qualified users can establish an account on Cisco.com by following the directions at http://www.cisco.com/register.

Cisco Feature Navigator is updated regularly when major Cisco IOS software releases and technology releases occur. For the most current information, go to the Cisco Feature Navigator home page at the following URL:

Configuration Tasks

No configuration is required to create a modem functionality report. The tasks to start the modem reports are described in the following sections:

Using the show tech-support Modem EXEC Commands

Creating a Modem Report

Using the show tech-support Modem EXEC Commands

To start the modem and SPE reports, use the following EXEC commands:

Command
Purpose

Router# show tech-support modem

Runs a basic list of modem reports for the Cisco AS5300 and AS5800.

Router# show tech-support modem detail

Runs a detailed list of modem reports for the Cisco AS5300 and AS5800.

Router# show tech-support spe

Runs a basic list of modem reports for the Cisco AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850.

Router# show tech-support spe detail

Runs a detailed list of modem reports for the Cisco AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850.


Creating a Modem Report

To create a modem functionality report for MICA and SPE modems, use the following EXEC commands:

To run a basic modem functionality report, enter the show tech-support modem (MICA modems on a Cisco AS5300 or AS5800) or show tech-support spe commands (SPE modems on Cisco AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850) at the privileged EXEC prompt. Table 1 lists the commands that are run by this command, in the order run.

To run the more detailed modem functionality report, enter the show tech-support modem detail (MICA modems on a Cisco AS5300 or AS5800) or show tech-support spe detail command (SPE modems on Cisco AS5350, AS5400, AS5800, and AS5850) at the privileged EXEC prompt. Table 1 lists the commands that are run by this command, in the order run.

Configuration Examples

The reports displayed by the show tech-support modem and show tech-support spe commands are the successive output of many commands. The reports take some time to run and, when captured in a buffer, can be over 100 pages in length. A truncated example is provided in this section to show the extent of the information provided by these reports; however, providing a sample report for each of these commands would take too many pages to provide.

The following example shows partial output of the show tech-support modem command on a Cisco AS5300:
