Hi Subodh

The local lable means the local label generated by router for particular prefix. This local label becomes remote label on adjacent routers for the same prefix.

Output Label:- No label means for out going no label will be added, If label is aggregate, it means mpls traffic will sent in the global routing table.

Bytes Label Switch:- The number of bytes switch for prefix.

Outgoing INterface:- Simple

Next Hop:- Simple
