Re: Cable Length with cisco command

there is not a command as such. You can only troubleshoot the connectivity use TDR but it does not tell you the cable length.

Yes it does. 

The TDR command combo will tell you the length of the cable.

Many thanks guys for the post. Sorry, I was not aware of the fact that we can really do that.

Good to know that it can be done.

Thanks for the ratings Amit.

Apologies not necessary.  That's one of the intention of this Forum isn't it?  Share information and knowledge?
