show counters commands

I have a 3500 switch with IOS of 12.0 that does not accept the " show counters " command. I cleared them and want to see what ports are not being used so I can move the users over to a new switch. What is the correct form of show counters?

If you're looking for ports

If you're looking for ports being used you should be able to use command such as "show int description" this will at least tell you if a port is up or down.

 

Here's a snippt from a 3550;

 

jcs08-3550#show int description
Interface                      Status         Protocol Description
Vl1                            up             up       
Vl500                          up             up       
Fa0/1                          admin down     down     AVAILABLE
Fa0/2                          admin down     down     AVAILABLE
Fa0/3                          down           down     NMC Workstation 206
Fa0/4                          down           down     NMC Workstation 207
Fa0/5                          down           down     NMC Workstation 208
Fa0/6                          down           down     NMC Workstation 209
Fa0/7                          down           down     NMC Workstation 210
Fa0/8                          up             up       AC6
Fa0/9                          down           down     NMC Workstation 212
Fa0/10                         down           down     NMC Workstation 213
