Cisco IOS Configuration analysis

Threaded View

I have been assigned a task to do a risk assessment for a Cisco router
(7600 family).  It has been a while since I played with a Cisco router.
  The routers I have configured (about 4 years ago) were  much smaller.
 The IOS feature set seems to have changed a lot.  In any case, this
task has been assigned to me.  The problem with this configuration file
that I am analyzing has about 16000 lines of configuration.  If you
remove the comments/blank lines, probably 14000 lines.  That is a huge

Now I have downloaded the Router Analysis Tool (RAT) from
site and executed it against the configuration file.  The output files
are straight forward.  Is there any other tool that will do similar
analysis on IOS configuration?  That would help me find some of the
common problems identified from both the tools.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

This is an oxymoron. It will be difficult for you, I think.

Yes. What's with the idea to structure and shorten this configuration

The best tool I know is called "brain" ;-) The configuration must be
read and reviewed.

What problems are you targeting?
