The show ipv6_bgp command displays the local NIOS appliance's IPv6 BGP configuration, reachability information about neighbors, and BGP routes to destinations. You can specify the command with or without an argument. A command without an argument defaults to show bgp route.
For information about how to write statistical information to syslog, see set bgp log.


show ipv6_bgp {route | neighbor | summary | config}

Argument Description
routeDisplays the BGP routing table.
summaryDisplays the BGP protocol summary.
neighborDisplays information about all known BGP neighbors. If only IPv4 BGP information is available, this command option displays IPv4 information.
configDisplays the running BGP configuration file, including all IPv4 and IPv6 configuration, prefix lists and access-lists.

If no applicable information is available (for example, the current device has no IPv6 BGP configuration and hence no IPv6 BGP neighbor information), you are returned to the NIOS CLI prompt.
