ProcedureHow to Use snoop to Run SLP Traces

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Run snoop with the slp command-line argument.

    Brief Mode:
    # snoop slp

    When you run snoop in the default brief mode, ongoing output is delivered to your screen. SLP messages are truncated to fit on one line per SLP trace.

    Verbose Mode:
    # snoop -v slp

    When you run snoop in verbose mode, snoop delivers ongoing, unabbreviated output to your screen, which provides the following information:

    • The complete address of the service URL

    • All service attributes

    • The registration lifetime

    • All security parameters and flags, if any are available

    Note –

    You can use the slp command-line argument with other snoop options.
