Get logical interface active bitrate

L3 Networker


How can I get the current bitrate of a logical interface at the time its queried via the API or CLI?

I've tried 'show interface tunnel.x' but that shows be the overall counters for that interface.

I know it can be done as Pan(w)achrome displays that information.  When I click on the birate speed in Pan(w)achrome it shows me 'tunnel.x.ibytes.rate', I just don't know where it's getting that from.

Will someone be able to help me.

Hi eugenep

Pan(w)achrome seems to be polling this <show><counter><interface>all</interface></counter></show>. I tried the above in REST API Browser and it showed me ibytes for the logical interface as well:


























Let me know if this is what you are looking for.

Thanks csharma.  That still seems to be a count of the overall bytes in not the active/current rate.

When I look at that value it just keeps rising and I doubt I can have an active bitrate of <ibytes>17992771529714</ibytes>.

Thanks anyways.
