CISCO CCNA 200-301 Q23

What command would provide the output displayed in the exhibit?

A. switch# show hsrp
B. switch# show standby
C. switch# show interface vlan
D. switch# show standby brief

Correct Answers: D

The command show standby brief displays the output in the exhibit. It is used to display a summary of the HSRP groups of which the switch is a member. The summary information it provides includes the group number, priority, state, active device address, standby address, and group address. In the exhibit, the interface VLAN 64 is a member of HSRP group 2. Its priority in the group is 100 and it is currently the standby switch. Since preemption is configured (as indicated by the P following the priority), we know that the priority of this switch must be lower than the priority of the active device. The active device has an IP address of and the group IP address is

The command show standby can be used to display detailed information about HSRP groups of which a switch is a member. It does not provide the quick summary display of the exhibit. This command displays information about HSRP on all configured interfaces and for all HSRP groups. It also displays hello timer information and the expiration timer for the standby switch. The command syntax is show standby [type number [group]].

Below is an example of this command’s output:

In the above output, Router A is load-sharing traffic for VLAN 5. It is active for group 1 and standby for group 2. The router at address is active for group 2 and standby for group 1. This allows traffic to be sent to both routers while still allowing for redundancy. Router A was also configured with the standby 1 preempt command (results seen in line 1), which allows it to resume its role as active for group 1 if it comes back up from an outage.

The command show interface vlan is not a complete command. A VLAN number must follow the command. When provided with a VLAN number, the output would display the status of the SVI, but no HSRP information.
The command show hsrp is not a valid command due to incorrect syntax.
