I am looking for a command that will show me a summary of port usage. What we are running into is we are trying to identify ports that have had usage on them over the last month. We have issued a clear counters to clear input/output traffic and now we want to go back and see if any of those ports have had any traffic on them over the last month. Instead of issuing a show int x/y and viewing the counters is there another command that could give me a summary of all ports and if there has been any traffic?

Hey. Good question. I can't think of any command that does this. But why not try something like this:


sh int | include (FastEthernet|packets input)

Just a show interface with no x/y will show you all ports and their traffic stats.


hostname#show interface

Perfect!! We have a couple of different platforms ranging from 29xx to 37xx...


I ended up using


sh int | inc Fa|packets input


Thanks!

If its a 4500 series switch you use "show interfaces link" and this will show you what you are looking for . Why they haven't ported this command to the other platforms I don't know, it does come in handy once in awhile.
