Hi everybody,

I have four 3com switches which are connected on my catalyst 2950.

Now I want to know on my LAN what's the traffic ( input and output rate) of each equipment  in my LAN connected on the catalyst with his ip address to identify the equipement.

How can I get it in CLI on my catalyst?

Please help me because i suspect on my LAN a machine which is not a server to overload  the network.

Thank you for your help

The hardware at hand does not provide that level of information from the CLI. You will need some 3rd pary utility that queries the switch via SNMP.

I suggest doing a google search on it.

But about this subject i'm looking for CiscoWorks network management software which is defined likes a NMS for SNMP Manager but I do not find it on the cisco website.

What is his new equivalent on the Support section on the cisco website?? Or can You give me another software wich doing same thing?

Thank you again

Thanks for your response,

I do what you told me to do but no response yet since yesterday.

I hope somebody will answer me.

Any way does it exist another way to obtain response on this forum (I think to ask directly ton an CSC expert)?

sorry but this command does not work and I have a switch catalyst 2950.

I think this command is not appropriate with this model.
