Display the names of the configured route-maps

I’m probably getting old … I keep forgetting the exact names (and capitalization) of route-maps I’ve configured on the router. The show route-maps command is way too verbose when I’m simply looking for the exact name of the route-map I want to use, so I wrote a Tcl script that displays the names of the route-maps configured on the router. If you add a -d switch, it also displays their descriptions (to be more precise, the first description configured in the route-map).

When using the -d switch, the script executes the show running command and might take a while to complete.

To use the script, download the routeMaps.tcl file (available from my web site) into the router’s flash and follow the installation instructions in the source.

Here is a sample printout from one of my routers:

R1#show alias | include rm

  rm                    tclsh flash:routeMaps.tcl
R1#rm
LocPref
SetCommunity
TestRange
prepend
 
R1#rm -d
Route map name       Description
========================================================================
LocPref
SetCommunity         Sets time-based communities on local routes
TestRange
prepend

  1. Thanks a lot. That is a great script that I'll load in my routers soon. I have the same problem myself ... ;-)
