Using debug Commands

Filed under: Uncategorized — ciscotips @ 4:43 pm

When using debug commands that increase CPU load, disable console logging using the Cisco IOS global configuration command no logging console and enable  buffered logging with the IOS global configuration command logging buffered.  Then execute the command from a virtual terminal session and view the output in that session.If the session is unresponsive, you can use the console to disable the debug because the console has higher priority than the virtual terminal session. Review the debug output in the log buffer using the IOS EXEC command show log.If syslogging is enabled,you can also view the output in the log file on the syslog server.
