EOS Native paths

To get EOS native paths, OCTA has to be enabled as mentioned in the configuration section. Performing GET/SUBSCRIBE actions using EOS native paths require changing the origin to eos_native.

Commonly used paths

  • MAC table: /Smash/bridging/status/smashFdbStatus
  • ARP table: /Smash/arp/status/arpEntry
  • Neighbor table: /Smash/arp/status/neighborEntry
  • IPv4 RIB: /Smash/routing/status/route
  • IPv6 RIB: /Smash/routing6/status/route
  • IPv4 next-hop table: /Smash/routing/status/nexthop
  • IPv6 next-hop table: /Smash/routing6/status/nexthop
  • CPU info: /Kernel/proc/cpu
  • Process statistics: /Kernel/proc/stat
  • System info: /Kernel/sysinfo
  • EOS version: /Eos/image
  • Interface counters: /Smash/counters/ethIntf/<agent>/current/counter
  • Values for <agent> are:
    • 7500-family, 7280-family, 7020-family (Arad/Jericho ASICs): SandCounters
    • 7300-family, 7250-family, 7050-family, 7010 products, 720-family (Trident ASICs): StrataCounters
    • For 7060-family, 7260-family (Tomahawk): Strata-FixedSystem or StrataCounters from 4.22+
    • 7150-family products (Alta ASICs): FocalPointV2
    • 7160-family products (Cavium/Xpliant ASICs): XpCounters
