I use a small SNMP utility called getif for this purpose. Here is the method :

- get sysuptime

- get ifoperstatus , note those that are down

- get iflastchange , which is the sysuptime when the interface went into the state it is in

- compare iflastchange on ports that are down with sysuptime , a difference of 70 days or more based on your criteria

- note that if the lastchange time is very close to 0, the the port has been in that state since the switch poweron

GetIF is a goooooood freeware to do your job.

If you want to do CLI on the 3548XL, try this:

sh controllers ethernet-controller

This will show you send and receive statistics including the errors. If you want to clear it, it's "clear controllers ethernet-controller ".

Is this what you are looking for?
