If it is a 4500 then it's "show int link " . They are really the only ones that will easily give you that information . Wish they would include that command on all models , it seems to be a highly requested feature .

Thanks for that little gem, I have to look after 50 x 4506/4510's and that will come in handy. Just for info, it also works on 4948's.

Correct it would work on the 4948's because they run the same exact code as the 4500's .

Have you tried using Solarwinds' Network Engineer's Toolset? Using SNMP, one of the applications, Real Time Interface Monitor, will do exactly what you are looking for.
