We are using Arista switches’ hardware VTEP and VMware vSphere NSX to integrate with physical network.

I think NSX controllers are communicating with HSC via OVSDB management protocol and it must be delivering the information of VxLAN(VTEP, MAC, ARP tables) and distributed logical router bridging (routes, logical interfaces, ARP, and MACs) which are controlled by NSX controllers.

-Which information actually came into Arista swithc from NSX controllers?

-Which commands do I use to list for those information like VTEP ip addresses from NSX environment?


Thanks alot!

Hi Jeff,

On the VTEP, you can use commands,

  • show interface vxlan 1 -> this shows vtep flood list info for vxlan extended vlan
  • show vxlan address-table -> this will show mac addresses learnt locally and the ones synced though controller

On cvx, you can use commands,

cvx#show service vxlan address-table received
cvx#show service vxlan address-table advertised
cvx#show service vxlan vni received
cvx#show service vxlan vni advertised
