SYNOPSIS

ciscoospf2yaml [-B boundary] [-E external] [-h] [-H user@host] [-I selfid] [-N network] [-R router] [-S summary] [ospf.yaml]

DESCRIPTION

ciscoospf2yaml takes the OSPF link state database of a Cisco IOS router and converts it into a YAML file.

The several input files containing the LSDB can be passed via command line. If a file is not given, ssh to the router is invoked gather the information dynamically. For that the user ospf must be allowed to log into the Cisco router.

The options are as follows:

-B boundary

File describing the AS boundary routers summary-LSAs. It can be obtained with show ip ospf database asbr-summary.

-E external

File describing the AS-external-LSAs. It can be obtained with show ip ospf database external.

-h

Show help message and exit.

-H user@host

The specified user and host are used for ssh login otherwise cisco is used as host name.

-I selfid

File describing the router from witch the LSDB has been taken. It can be obtained with show ip ospf.

-N network

File describing the network-LSAs. It can be obtained with show ip ospf database network.

-R router
