With function saprouter -l (IBM i: saprouter '-l') you trigger the SAProuter to display route information on the screen; with saprouter -L (IBM i: saprouter '-L') you get more detailed information.

The information contains the following:

  • A table with the connection number, client, partner, and service for each existing connection Connections for which the connection trace is activated are marked with an asterisk (*).

    For more information, see Option -t (toggle trace)

  • The total number of clients, the working directory in which SAProuter is running, and the path of the route permission table

  • The PID and the port of the parent, if the SAProuter was started by another SAProuter process (For more information, see Starting the SAProuter and Option -Y <n>.)

    Note Note

    If you want to display the SAProuter information from a remote host, use option -H <hostname> [-P <password>].

    End of the note.
Route Details for Several SAProuters

If you are running several SAProuter processes, and you want to display the route details of a SAProuter other than the last one started, use option Option -S <service> and specify the port. You can find out the port of the SAProuter preceding the current one by using the option -l (see above).


If you specify saprouter –l, the output may look like:
