To effectively diagnose various issues arising at the switch, different types of data are copied out using copy commands for further analysis.

Use the copy core-dump command to copy the core-dump of a daemon crash.

Use the copy show-tech command to capture the status of the feature.

If there is feature misbehavior, use the copy support-files feature command to copy all feature related information for further analysis. Additionally use copy support-log and copy diag-dump to copy information that helps to analyze the internal behavior of a feature/daemon.

Use copy command-output to copy any show command's output to remote destinations or USB storage.

These files can be copied to a remote destination using sftp/tftp, additionally they can also be stored in the USB storage.


In the standby management module, data can only be copied to the USB storage.
