We're having problems with our new 2960G stack with port flapping. I'm sure, at this point, the problem is cabling ( its old cat5 ), but I'd like to run some debugging on this stack for a little while to see what the switch has to say.
What debug command can I use to watch a port and see what messages it is generating while it is flapping?
I have looked though the extensive list of debug items, but am unsure which to use. I've also got 600 things that need doing and don't have the time to properly research this.
Also note that debug logs will only appear where you configure debugging severity (which is 7). If you want to see the debugs on a telnet/ssh session, enable monitor logging 7 and don't forget to issue the 'terminal monitor' (term mon) command to see the debug messages.
