Because the enterprise EIGRP MIB is typically not used by Cisco devices, Network Protocol Manager for EIGRP uses CLI discovery and CLI polling to discover and monitor EIGRP topology. The CLI commands that are invoked for EIGRP discovery are identified in the VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Manager Discovery Guide Supplement, and the CLI commands that are invoked for EIGRP monitoring are identified in this section.
Network Protocol Manager for EIGRP establishes Telnet, SSH1, or SSH2 sessions to the Cisco devices and invokes the following CLI command:
show ip eigrp neighbors
The command provides the IP address of the target device’s EIGRP neighbor (remote) and the local interface by which the neighbor can be reached.
