Im trying to measure our cisco router availability data based on downtime happened. I assume from show version, the time mentioned in tag "System returned to ROM" is when reload started, and next line "System restarted at" is when router back online again. The only thing confusing is RouterA node showing exact time when returned to ROM while RouterB is not.

Does anyone know the different? And how to make RouterB shows the exact time router reloaded next time on the show version command print out?

Thanks

It looks like you need to verify config register.

execute show bootvar for RP and remote command switch show bootvar for SP.

Find the config-register value.

  • Thanks for your answer... I was assuming if reload done by system will not show the specific time on line "System returned to ROM..." while if reload initiated by command will have the specific time on that line, can it be like that? – hadit Jan 11 '17 at 4:05
  • This line JAVT Thu Oct 11 2012 is duplicated in next line. It's not failure on you RouterA. I thinks problem cause by you terminal software output or terminal setting on your routerA line break. – Roger Sanghee Gold Jan 11 '17 at 6:28
  • You should check config-register for If wrong value is configured your router. it's too dangerous. – Roger Sanghee Gold Jan 11 '17 at 6:37
