show controllers cxbus Command

The show controllers cxbus exec command is used on the Cisco 7x00 series routers to display information about the SP, the CxBus controller, and the contents and microcode of cards attached to the bus. This command's output for the most part is useful for diagnostic tasks performed by Cisco support engineers only. Example 4-11 is a sample output of the show controllers cxbus command executed on a Cisco 7000 router.

Example 4-11 A Sample Output of the show controllers cxbus Command

The top portion of the output displayed by Example 4-11 tells you the SP's hardware and microcode version, main memory and cache memory size, number of different buffer sizes, and the number of restarts due to line down (communication line), hung output, or controller error. The second part of the output displayed by Example 4-11 includes information about the Channel Interface Processor (CIP). In this section, you can see the CIP's hardware and microcode version, CPU utilization, free and total SRAM memory (Static RAM is a high speed memory used for operational code), free and total DRAM memory (Dynamic RAM is normal memory used for packets, data,and so on), and information about each of the CIP interfaces.
