Auditing Router Interfaces

Filed under: Router, Switching — ciscotips @ 11:01 pm

I received a following tip from  Robert in california, incorporating here:- 

Maintenance Finding Router Interface Information I sometimes need to audit a listing of all interfaces on a router or Multiswitch Feature Card (MSFC) for the IP address and description. While there are ways to get either  (for example, show ip int brief and sh int desc), I have been looking for a command that enables me to display both types of information at once. To find the exact information that I need quickly, I use the following command: 

show run | include interface | ip address | description


  1. How about ‘show interface status’?

  2. show interface will give you full status of the interface. If you have 100 or more interfaces . Auditing with show interface will be an complex task.
