If you’re anything like me, having to switch between the keyboard
mouse feels like such a waste of time. If I can do it from the keyboard I
will! I’m still waiting for a way to use photoshop 100% from the
keyboard.. but I digress. These are the keyboard shortcuts I find myself
using the most.
|Ctrl+A||Move cursor to the beginning of the line|
|Ctrl+E||Move cursor to the end of the line|
|Up||Retrieve last command from history|
|Down||Retrieve next command from history|
|Ctrl+W||Erase previous word|
|Ctrl+U||Erase the entire line|
|Ctrl+C||Exit configuration mode|
|Ctrl+Z||Apply the current command and exit configuration mode|
Begin filters everything until the first instance of your specified pattern.
Router# show run | begin bgp
router bgp 65500
Section includes only the section of the config you specify
Router# show run | section int
no ip address
no ip address
Exclude filters lines that match your pattern
Router# show run | exclude !
Current configuration : 754 bytes
service timestamps debug uptime
service timestamps log uptime
no service password-encryption
no aaa new-model
Include pattern can contain regular expressions. So I will show you two examples of this being used.
Router# show run | inc ^interface|ip address
ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0 secondary
Here is a second example that shows what interfaces have ACLs applied. In a future post I will dive deeper into regular expressions.
Router# sh ip int | inc line protocol|access list is [^ ]+$I hope some of these tips will help you out, in the future I will continue to publish more tidbits that will help you optimize your configurations. If you think I’ve left anything out, please comment below!
