Hello Mayamba,

you may be able to use Digital Optical Monitoring for this.

check your transceiver in this list

and see this thread of some mounths ago^1%40%40.2cd3f355/3#selected_message

you probably need to enable in global config monitoring for all transceivers types.


you can use search option on topr right corner with search string =DOM to find the referred thread


another feature that can be useful is

see section

Configuring the Port Debounce Timer

Hope to help
