When the Debug flag in the BASEDIR/smarts/conf/<bgp|eigrp|isis|ospf>/perl-cli.conf file is set to 1, the Perl CLI module creates CLI log files in the following directory:


The log files contain records of the Telnet, SSH1, or SSH2 sessions with the EIGRP- or IS-IS-enabled Cisco device.

Each record includes the CLI commands that are issued by the Perl CLI module, and the responses that are returned by the device. The Perl CLI module parses the log files to create topology objects in the Network Protocol Manager repository.
