Parameters

mac-address: Specifies a MAC address in the format of H-H-H. When entering a MAC address, you can omit the leading zeros in each H section. For example, enter f-e2-1 for 000f-00e2-0001.

vlan vlan-id: Specifies a VLAN by its ID in the range of 1 to 4094.

dynamic: Displays dynamic MAC address entries.

static: Displays static MAC address entries.

interface interface-type interface-number: Specifies an interface by its type and number.

blackhole: Displays blackhole MAC address entries.

multiport: Displays multiport unicast MAC address entries.

count: Displays only the number of MAC address entries that match all entry attributes you specify in the command. Detailed information about MAC address entries is not displayed. For example, you can use the display mac-address vlan 20 dynamic count command to display the number of dynamic entries for VLAN 20. If you do not specify an entry attribute, the command displays the number of entries in the MAC address table. If you do not specify this keyword, the command displays detailed information about the specified MAC address entries.

Usage guidelines

A MAC address entry includes a destination MAC address, an outgoing interface, and a VLAN ID.

If you do not specify any parameters, the command displays all MAC address entries.

This command displays dynamic MAC address entries for an aggregate interface only when the aggregate interface has a minimum of one Selected member port.

Multiport unicast MAC address entries have no impact on the MAC address learning. When receiving a frame whose source MAC address matches a multiport unicast entry, the device can still learn the MAC address of the frame and generate a dynamic entry. However, the generated dynamic entry has lower priority. The device prefers to use the multiport unicast entry to forward frames destined for the MAC address in the entry.

Examples

# Display MAC address entries for VLAN 100.

<Sysname> display mac-address vlan 100

Parameters

slot slot-number: Specifies an IRF member device by its member ID. If you do not specify a member device, the command displays MAC address move records for all IRF member devices.

Usage guidelines

When a MAC address frequently moves between the specified two interfaces, Layer 2 loops might occur in the network. To discover and locate loops, you can view the MAC address move records.

In the MAC address move records, records with the same MAC address, VLAN, source port, and current port are considered to be one record.

An IRF member device can generate a maximum of 200 MAC address move records.

Examples

Parameters

dynamic: Specifies dynamic MAC address entries.

static: Specifies static MAC address entries.

multiport: Specifies multiport unicast MAC address entries. A frame whose destination MAC address matches a multiport unicast MAC address entry is sent out of multiple ports.

mac-address: Specifies a MAC address in the format of H-H-H, excluding multicast, all-zero, and all-F MAC addresses. When entering a MAC address, you can omit the leading zeros in each H section. For example, enter f-e2-1 for 000f-00e2-0001.

vlan vlan-id: Specifies an existing VLAN to which the specified interface belongs. The value range for the vlan-id argument is 1 to 4094.

Usage guidelines

Typically, the device automatically builds the MAC address table by learning the source MAC addresses of incoming frames on each interface. However, you can manually configure static MAC address entries. For a MAC address, a manually configured static entry takes precedence over a dynamically learned entry. To improve the security for the user device connected to an interface, manually configure a static entry to bind the user device to the interface. Then, the frames destined for the user device (for example, Host A) are always sent out of the interface. Other hosts using the forged MAC address of Host A cannot obtain the frames destined for Host A.

The MAC address entry configuration cannot survive a reboot unless you save it. The dynamic MAC address entries, however, are lost upon reboot whether or not you save the configuration.

Examples

# Add a static entry for MAC address 000f-e201-0101 on Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 that belongs to VLAN 2.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/1

Parameters

dynamic: Specifies dynamic MAC address entries.

static: Specifies static MAC address entries.

blackhole: Specifies blackhole MAC address entries. Packets whose source or destination MAC addresses match blackhole MAC address entries are dropped.

multiport: Specifies multiport unicast MAC address entries. A frame whose destination MAC address matches a multiport unicast MAC address entry is sent out of multiple ports.

mac-address: Specifies a MAC address in the format of H-H-H, excluding multicast, all-zero, and all-F MAC addresses. When entering a MAC address, you can omit the leading zeros in each H section. For example, enter f-e2-1 for 000f-00e2-0001.

vlan vlan-id: Specifies an existing VLAN to which the interface belongs. The value range for the vlan-id argument is 1 to 4094.

interface interface-type interface-number: Specifies an outgoing interface by its type and number.

interface interface-list: Specifies a list of up to four interface items. Each interface item can be an individual interface in the format of interface-type interface-number or a range of interfaces in the format of interface-type interface-number1 to interface-type interface-number2. The interfaces can only be Layer 2 Ethernet interfaces or Layer 2 aggregate interfaces. The value for the interface-number2 argument cannot be lower than the value for the interface-number1 argument.

Usage guidelines

You can use this command to configure the following types of MAC address entries:

·     Dynamic entries.

Dynamic entries include manually configured dynamic entries and automatically learned dynamic entries.

·     Static entries.

For a MAC address, a manually configured static entry takes precedence over a dynamic entry. To improve the security for the user device connected to an interface, manually configure a static entry to bind the user device to the interface. Then, the frames destined for the user device (for example, Host A) are always sent out of the interface. Other hosts using the forged MAC address of Host A cannot obtain the frames destined for Host A.

·     Blackhole entries.

To drop frames with the specified source MAC addresses or destination MAC addresses, you can configure blackhole entries.

·     Multiport unicast entries.

To send frames with a specific destination MAC address out of multiple ports, configure a multiport unicast entry. When you execute this command for the first time, the command adds an entry. When you execute the command again with the same MAC address and VLAN but with different interfaces, this command adds the specified interfaces for this entry.

A static or blackhole entry can overwrite a dynamic entry, but not vice versa.

If you execute the undo mac-address command without specifying any parameters, this command deletes all unicast MAC address entries and static multicast MAC address entries.

You can delete all the MAC address entries (including unicast and static multicast MAC address entries) from the specified VLAN. You can also delete only one type (dynamic, static, blackhole, or multiport unicast) of MAC address entries. You can single out an interface and delete the unicast MAC address entries on it, but not the static multicast MAC address entries.

The MAC address entry configuration cannot survive a reboot unless you save it. The dynamic MAC address entries, however, are lost upon reboot whether or not you save the configuration.

Examples

# Add a static entry for MAC address 000f-e201-0101. Then, all frames that are destined for this MAC address are sent out of Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1, which belongs to VLAN 2.

<Sysname> system-view

Usage guidelines

To prevent the MAC address table from becoming saturated, you can disable MAC address learning.

For example, a number of packets with different source MAC addresses reaching a device can affect the MAC address table update. To avoid such attacks, you can disable MAC address learning by following these guidelines:

·     You can disable MAC address learning on a per-interface basis. If you disable MAC address learning globally, MAC address learning is disabled for all interfaces. The device then stops learning MAC addresses and cannot dynamically update the MAC address table.

·     Because disabling MAC address learning can result in broadcast storms, enable broadcast storm suppression after you disable MAC address learning on an interface. For more information about broadcast storm suppression, see Interface Configuration Guide.

·     With MAC address learning enabled globally, you can disable MAC address learning for an interface or VLAN.

·     After MAC address learning is disabled, the device immediately deletes existing dynamic MAC address entries.

This command does not take effect on a VXLAN VSI. For information about VXLAN VSIs, see VXLAN Configuration Guide.

Parameters

high: Assigns high MAC learning priority.

low: Assigns low MAC learning priority.

Usage guidelines

The MAC address learning priority values can be high and low. An interface with high MAC address learning priority can learn any MAC address. An interface with low MAC address learning priority can learn only the MAC addresses that have not been learned by high-priority interfaces.

The MAC learning priority mechanism can help defend your network against MAC address spoofing attacks. To prevent the downlink interface from learning the MAC address of an upper layer device (for example, the gateway), you can perform the following tasks:

·     Assign high MAC learning priority to an uplink interface.

·     Assign low MAC learning priority to a downlink interface.

Examples

# Assign high MAC learning priority to Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1.

Usage guidelines

On an IRF fabric, if ports on different IRF member devices are Selected ports from the same aggregation group, MAC address entries are synchronized among these IRF member devices. They are synchronized whether or not MAC address synchronization is enabled for the IRF fabric. For more information about aggregation groups, see Layer 2—LAN Switching Configuration Guide.

The MAC address table size might vary by IRF member device. With MAC address synchronization enabled, MAC address entries exceeding the table size of an IRF member device cannot be synchronized to the MAC address table.

Parameters

count: Specifies the maximum number of MAC addresses that can be learned on an interface. When the argument is set to 0, the interface is not allowed to learn MAC addresses. The value range for this argument is 0 to 4096.

Usage guidelines

This command helps limit the MAC address table size. When the number of MAC address entries learned by an interface reaches the limit, the interface stops learning MAC address entries.

Examples

# Configure Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 to learn a maximum of 600 MAC address entries.

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

interval interval: Specifies the interval for detecting MAC address moves, in the range of 1 to 60 minutes. If you do not specify this option, the default setting of 1 minute is used.

Usage guidelines

With MAC address move notifications enabled, the system records the MAC address move logs every MAC move detection interval. Each record of the MAC address move logs contains the following information:

·     MAC address.

·     VLAN ID of the MAC address entry.

·     Current port and source port of the MAC address moves.

·     Number of MAC address moves within a detection interval.

A MAC address can have only one MAC address move record. If a MAC address moves multiple times, the new record overrides the old record.

Within a detection interval, an IRF member device can record MAC address move information for a maximum of 20 MAC addresses. The records are ranked in descending order of MAC move counts. If the number of MAC address move records exceeds 20, only the first 20 records are retained. Then in the next detection interval, the device discards all MAC address move records generated in the previous detection interval and starts another round of MAC move record generation.

After you execute this command, the system sends only syslog messages to the information center module. If the snmp-agent trap enable mac-address command is also executed, the system also sends SNMP notifications to the SNMP module.

Examples

# Enable MAC address move notifications.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] mac-address notification mac-move

The output shows that:

·     The VLAN ID of MAC address 0000-0012-0034 is VLAN 500.

·     The MAC address moved from Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 to Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/2.

The shutdown interface automatically goes up after a suppression interval. Also, you can use the shutdown command and then the undo shutdown command to bring up the interface.

When MAC address move suppression shuts an interface down, the system sends only syslog messages to the information center module. If the snmp-agent trap enable mac-address command is also executed, the system also sends SNMP notifications to the SNMP module.

Examples

# Enable MAC address move suppression on Ten-GigabitEthernet 1/0/1.

[Sysname] interface ten-gigabitethernet 1/0/1

[Sysname-Ten-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] mac-address notification mac-move suppression

Related commands

mac-address notification mac-move suppression (system view)

mac-address notification mac-move suppression (system view)

Use mac-address notification mac-move suppression to set the suppression interval or the suppression threshold.

Use undo mac-address notification mac-move suppression to restore the default.

Syntax

mac-address notification mac-move suppression { interval interval | threshold threshold }

undo mac-address notification mac-move suppression { interval | threshold }

Default

The suppression interval is 30 seconds. The suppression threshold is 3.

Parameters

interval interval: Specifies the MAC address move suppression interval during which a suppressed interface stays down. The value range for the interval-value argument is 30 to 86400 seconds. If you do not specify this option, the default suppression interval of 30 seconds is used.

threshold threshold: Specifies the suppression threshold for MAC address moves sourced from or destined for an interface within a MAC move detection interval. The value range for this argument is 0 to 1024. If you do not specify this option, the default suppression threshold of 3 is used.

Usage guidelines

For this command to take effect on an interface, you must also enable MAC address move suppression on the interface.

If you set the suppression interval or suppression threshold multiple times, the most recent configuration applies. The suppression interval setting is independent of the suppression threshold setting.

Examples

# Set the suppression interval to 40 seconds and the suppression threshold to 1 for MAC address moves.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] mac-address notification mac-move suppression interval 40

[Sysname] mac-address notification mac-move suppression threshold 1

Parameters

aging seconds: Specifies an aging timer for dynamic MAC address entries, in seconds. The value range for the seconds argument is 10 to 1000000.

no-aging: Configures dynamic MAC address entries not to age.

Usage guidelines

To set the aging timer appropriately, follow these guidelines:

·     A long aging interval causes the MAC address table to retain outdated entries and fail to accommodate the most recent network changes.

·     A short aging interval results in removal of valid entries. Then, unnecessary broadcast packets appear and affect device performance.

Examples

# Set the aging time to 500 seconds for dynamic MAC address entries.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] mac-address timer aging 500

snmp-agent trap enable mac-address

Use snmp-agent trap enable mac-address to enable SNMP notifications for the MAC address table.

Use undo snmp-agent trap enable mac-address to disable SNMP notifications for the MAC address table.

Syntax

snmp-agent trap enable mac-address [ mac-move ]

undo snmp-agent trap enable mac-address [ mac-move ]

Default

SNMP notifications are enabled for the MAC address table.

Views

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

mac-move: Specifies notifications about the MAC address moves for the MAC address table. If you do not specify this keyword, the command enables all types of SNMP notifications for the MAC address table.

Usage guidelines

To report critical MAC address move events to an NMS, enable SNMP notifications for the MAC address table. For MAC address move event notifications to be sent correctly, you must also configure SNMP on the device.

When SNMP notifications are disabled for the MAC address table, the device sends the generated logs to the information center. To display the logs, configure the log destination and output rule configuration in the information center.

For information about SNMP and information center configuration, see the network management and monitoring configuration guide for the device.

The MAC address table supports only SNMP notifications about MAC address moves. When you enable or disable SNMP notifications about MAC address moves, you enable or disable all types of SNMP notifications for the MAC address table.

Examples

# Disable SNMP notifications about MAC address moves for the MAC address table.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] undo snmp-agent trap enable mac-address mac-move

Parameters

value: Specifies the MAC Information queue length in the range of 0 to 1000. The MAC Information queue length indicates the number of MAC change messages.

Usage guidelines

If the MAC Information queue length is 0, the device sends a syslog message or SNMP notification immediately after learning or deleting a MAC address.

If the MAC Information queue length is not 0, the device stores MAC changes in the queue:

·     The device overwrites the oldest MAC change written into the queue with the most recent MAC change when the following conditions exist:

¡     The MAC change notification interval does not expire.

¡     The queue has been exhausted.

·     The device sends syslog messages or SNMP notifications only if the MAC change notification interval expires.

Examples

# Set the MAC Information queue length to 600.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] mac-address information queue-length 600
