protocol icmpv6

Sep 12, 2016

The following operations can be performed on "protocol icmpv6":

stat protocol icmpv6

Displays statistics of the ICMPv6 protocol.

Synopsys

stat protocol icmpv6 [-detail] [-fullValues] [-ntimes <positive_integer>] [-logFile <input_filename>] [-clearstats ( basic | full )]

Arguments

detail

Specifies detailed output (including more statistics). The output can be quite voluminous. Without this argument, the output will show only a summary.

fullValues

Specifies that numbers and strings should be displayed in their full form. Without this option, long strings are shortened and large numbers are abbreviated

ntimes

The number of times, in intervals of seven seconds, the statistics should be displayed.

Default value: 1

Minimum value: 0

logFile

The name of the log file to be used as input.

clearstats

Clear the statsistics / counters

Possible values: basic, full

Outputs

ICMPv6 packets received (icmpv6RxPkts)

ICMPv6 packets received.

ICMPv6 bytes received (icmpv6RxBytes)

Bytes of ICMPv6 data received.

ICMPv6 packets transmitted (icmpv6TxPkts)

ICMPv6 packets transmitted.

ICMPv6 bytes transmitted (icmpv6TxBytes)

Bytes of ICMPv6 data transmitted.

ICMPv6 NA packets received (icmpv6RxNa)

ICMPv6 neighbor advertisement packets received. These packets are received in response to a neighbor solicitation message sent out by this node, or if the link layer address of a neighbor has changed.

ICMPv6 NS packets received (icmpv6RxNs)

ICMPv6 neighbor solicitation packets received. These packets are received if the link layer address of a neighbor has changed, or in response to a neighbor solicitation message sent out by this node.

ICMPv6 RA packets received (icmpv6RxRa)

ICMPv6 router advertisement packets received. These are received at defined intervals or in response to a router solicitation message.

ICMPv6 RS packets received (icmpv6RxRs)

ICMPv6 router solicitation packets received. These could be sent by a neighboring router to initiate address resolution.

ICMPv6 Echo Request packets received (icmpv6RxEchoReq)

ICMPv6 Ping Echo Request packets received.

ICMPv6 Echo Reply packets received (icmpv6RxEchoReply)

ICMPv6 Ping Echo Reply packets received.

ICMPv6 NA packets transmitted (icmpv6TxNa)

ICMPv6 neighbor advertisement packets transmitted. These packets are sent in response to a neighbor solicitation packet, or if the link layer address of this node has changed.

ICMPv6 NS packets transmitted (icmpv6TxNs)

ICMPv6 neighbor solicitation packets transmitted. These packets are sent to get the link layer addresses of neighboring nodes or to confirm that they are reachable.

ICMPv6 RA packets transmitted (icmpv6TxRa)

ICMPv6 router advertisement packets transmitted. These packets are sent at regular intervals or in response to a router solicitation packet from a neighbor.

ICMPv6 RS packets transmitted (icmpv6TxRs)

ICMPv6 router solicitation packets transmitted. These packets are sent to request neighboring routers to generate router advertisements immediately rather than wait for the next defined time.

ICMPv6 Echo Request packets transmitted (icmpv6TxEchoReq)

ICMPv6 Ping Echo Request packets transmitted.

ICMPv6 Echo Reply packets transmitted (icmpv6TxEchoReply)

ICMP Ping Echo Reply packets transmitted.

ICMPv6 RA error packets (Error in RA packet)

ICMPv6 router advertisement error packets received that contain an error in the header, such as an incorrect source IP address, destination IP address, or packet length.

ICMPv6 NA error packets (Error in NA packet)

ICMPv6 neighbor advertisement error packets received that contain an error in the header, such as an incorrect source IP address, destination IP address, or packet length.

ICMPv6 NS error packets (Error in NS packet)

ICMPv6 neighbor solicitation error packets received that contain an error in the header, such as an incorrect source IP address, destination IP address, or packet length.

ICMPv6 bad checksum (Cksumerr)

Packets received with an ICMPv6 checksum error.

unsupported ICMPv6 packets (icmpv6Unspt)

ICMPv6 packets received that are not supported by the NetScaler.

Rate threshold exceeded packets (icmpv6thsld)

Packets dropped because the default threshold of 100 requests per 10 milliseconds has been exceeded.

This is a configurable value using the set rateControl command.
