The table below describes the fields shown in the display.

Table: show ipx traffic Field Descriptions

Field Description

Time since last clear

Elapsed time since last clear command issued

Rcvd:

Description of the packets received

total

Total number of packets received

    format errors

Number of bad packets discarded (for example, packets with a corrupted header). Includes IPX packets received in an encapsulation that this interface is not configured for.

    checksum errors

Number of packets containing a checksum error. This number should always be 0, because IPX rarely uses a checksum.

    bad hop count

Number of packets discarded because their hop count exceeded 16

    packets pitched

Number of times the device received its own broadcast packet

    local destination

Number of packets sent to the local broadcast address or specifically to the router

    multicast

Number of packets received that were addressed to an IPX multicast address

Bcast:

Description of broadcast packets the router received and sent

    received

Number of broadcast packets received

    sent

Number of broadcast packets sent, including those the router is either forwarding or has generated

Sent:

Description of packets the software generated and sent and those the software received and routed to other destinations

    generated

Number of packets sent that the router generated itself

    forwarded

Number of packets sent that the router forwarded from other sources

    encapsulation failed

Number of packets the software was unable to encapsulate

    no route

Number of times the software could not locate a route to the destination in the routing table

SAP:

Description of the Service Advertising Protocol (SAP) packets sent and received

    Total SAP requests

Cumulative sum of SAP requests received:

    SAP advertisements     received and sent

Number of SAP advertisements generated and then sent as a result of a change to the routing or service tables

       SAPs throttled

Number of SAP packets discarded because they exceeded buffer capacity

       freed NDB len

Number of Network Descriptor Blocks removed from the network but still needing to be removed from the routing table of the router

Watchdog:

Description of the watchdog packets the software handled
