Displaying the VDP State and Statistics

To display the VDP state, type the following command:

# dladm show-ether -P vdp
vnic1    net0       2:8:20:22:3c:6b     98/0         ASSOC       NONE 
vnic2    net0       2:8:20:90:7f:ef     96/0         ASSOC       NONE 

VSI-STATE shows the status of the VDP exchange with the peer. Possible values are:

  • TIMEDOUT – The peer has not responded to the VDP requests.

  • ASSOC – The peer processed the request successfully.

  • DEASSOC – Either the host or the peer has rejected the request. The peer can reject the request if it is not able to determine the profile or the properties specified. The host can reject the exchange of VDP packets if it is using oracle_v1 encoding and the peer does not include the Oracle OUI in its response.

The sample output shows that two VSIs (VNICs) are configured over the link net0. Their specific VSI IDs refer to their respective MAC addresses. The VSI-TYPE ID for VNICs, vnic1 and vnic2 are generated from their respective properties (bandwidth limit and MTU) and the encoding is defined by oracle_v1.

To obtain statistics about the outgoing or incoming VDP packets, type the following command:

# dlstat show-ether -P vdp net1
LINK    IPKTS    OPKTS   KeepAlives 
net1    3        2       1
