usnic_devinfo - Man Page

Simple utility to list information about usnic interfaces


usnic_devinfo -h
usnic_devinfo [OPTIONS]


The usnic_devinfo utility can be used to query information about available Cisco usNIC interfaces. The usnic_devinfo utility can filter based on device name and can provide either a summary, or a detailed information listing about each interface.


-b : Instead of showing all information about an interface, show only a brief summary.

-d : Specify the local device by name or number. usNIC interfaces are named following the pattern usnic_X where X is a non-negative integer. This option accepts either the full name or the number after the usnic_ prefix.

Usage Examples

$ usnic_devinfo -d usnic_0

Show information about the device named "usnic_0".

$ usnic_devinfo -d 0

This form is the same as the example above; it will display information about the device named "usnic_0".

$ usnic_devinfo -d usnic_2 -b

Display brief information about the device named "usnic_2".


By default, the full information is displayed:
