GBIC or SFP Information

Unanswered Question
Sep 12th, 2008

Can anyone please let me know that how will I find the availability of GBIC or SFP card in its slot provided.

I am trying to find this for following device types

6509, 7200, 7500, 7600 & 29-00 devices.

I tried

"show diag" it gives information only up to port adapter level, no information is provided about the availability of the pluggable factors.

"show interface GigabitEthernet" I see some response even if the hardware is not plugged in.

Please help

I have this problem too.

in CatOs, use > show port

and in IOS use # show int status

and look under the type column

Hope this Helps

Thanks for the reply.

Since the "show int status" command is not supported across IOS version, I have concerns using this command for 12.0/12.1 versions.

Is there any other command that can help in this regard?

For the 6500 and 7600 one command might give you the information needed:

show idprom interface gigx/y

or for the entire module:

show idprom module x

For the 7200/7500 platform I am not aware of any command.
