T through Z Commands

This topic includes all commands that begin with netq t*, netq u*, netq v*, netq w*, netq x*, netq y*, and netq z*.

netq trace

Verifies network connectivity on-demand between two devices at layer 2 or layer 3. Results are shown in the terminal window.

The tracing function only knows about addresses that have already been learned. If you find that a path is invalid or incomplete, you may need to ping the identified device so that its address becomes known.

You can improve the readability of the output using color. Run netq config add color to turn color on. Run netq config del color to turn color off.

Syntax

Three forms of this command are available; one for layer 3 and two for layer 2 traces.

netq trace
	<ip>
	from (<src-hostname>|<ip-src>)
	[vrf <vrf>]
	[around <text-time>]
	[json|detail|pretty]

netq trace
	(<mac> vlan <1-4096>)
	from (<src-hostname>|<ip-src>)
	[vrf <vrf>]
	[around <text-time>]
	[json|detail|pretty]
	
netq trace
	(<mac> vlan <1-4096>)
	from <mac-src>
	[around <text-time>]
	[json|detail|pretty]

Required Arguments

ArgumentValueDescription
NA<ip>End trace at the device with this IPv4 or IPv6 address (no mask). IPv6 addresses must be the complete, non-truncated address.
NA<mac>End trace at the device with this MAC address
vlan<1-4096>End trace at the device with this VLAN identifier
NA<src-hostname>Start trace at the device with this hostname
NA<ip-src>Start trace at the device with this IPv4 or IPv6 address. IPv6 addresses must be the complete, non-truncated address.
NA<mac-src>Start trace at the device with this MAC address

Options

OptionValueDescription
vrf<vrf>Only use paths through this VRF
around<text-time>

Indicates how far to go back in time for the network state information. The value is written using text (versus a UTP representation for example). Note there is no space between the number and unit of time.

Valid values include:

  • <1-xx>s: number of seconds
  • <1-xx>m: number of minutes
  • <1-xx>h: number of hours
  • <1-xx>d: number of days

jsonNADisplay results in JSON file format instead of default on-screen text format
detailNADisplay results in a tabular format with a row per hop and a set of rows per path, useful for traces with higher hop counts where the pretty output wraps lines, making it harder to interpret the results. This is the default output when not specified.
prettyNADisplay results lined up by paths in a pseudo-graphical manner to help visualize the multiple paths
