OSPF Areas
Once the configuration has been created, it is time to test it and make sure
it works. There are several show commands that facilitate this task, and we
discuss them in the following section.
Verifying OSPF Configuration
This section describes several ways in which to verify proper OSPF configu-
ration and operation. Table 4.5 contains a list of OSPF show commands.
show ip ospf
This command is used to display OSPF information for one or all OSPF pro-
cesses running on the router. Information contained therein includes the
Router ID, area information, SPF statistics, and LSA timer information.
Here is a sample output:
RouterA#sho ip ospf
Routing Process "ospf 1" with ID
Supports only single TOS(TOS0) routes
