show ip route

[Please suggest content for the Short Description, to summarise and introduce this topic. What does the command do, and what does this topic show?]

Example: show ip route

$OS_PROMPT$ show ip route 10.10.10.1
Routing entry for 10.10.10.0/24
Known via "connected", distance 1, metric 0, tag 0, best
* via 10.10.10.4, dp0s8
$OS_PROMPT$ show ip route 192.168.99.9
Routing entry for 192.168.99.8/29
Known via "bgp", distance 20, metric 0, tag 65512, best
Last update 22:16:34 ago
* via 10.99.99.4, dp0bond0
$OS_PROMPT$ show ip route
Codes: K - kernel, C - connected, S - static, D - DHCP, R - RIP, B - BGP
O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2
i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area
L - LDP, V - RSVP-TE, I - IGP shortcut
> - selected route, * - FIB route, p - stale info
IP Route Table for Routing-instance "default"
C *> 10.10.10.0/24 is directly connected, dp0s8
C *> 10.99.99.0/24 is directly connected, dp0bond0
C *> 127.0.0.0/8 is directly connected, lo
B *> 192.168.99.8/29 [20/0] via 10.99.99.4, dp0bond0, 22:11:48

In this example we can see that:

  • The flow of traffic is from address 10.10.10.1 to 192.168.99.1
  • Traffic to address 10.10.10.1 should egress on interface dp0s8
  • Traffic to address 192.168.99.9 should egress on interface dp0bond0 — and that this is a route learned via Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
