Switch front panel MODE button, how to read

Where in Cisco documentation is how to read a small switch

Front panel MODE button display on the LEDs

Looking at a catalyst 2950


I’m checking on a switch I do NOT have login access, want to just read the MODE UTIL bar graph correctly

  Looking for a cause of slow response between a router our organization owns and a switch a customer owns

  Is the bar graph linear or logarithmic?

if the green LED's are showing a constant level or 14 out of 24  and jumps up to 16 out of 24

  What Utilization is that?

And the amber LED's are at 24 out of 24   , that is 100% utilization

   Is it a 100% spike reached some time since power up?

   Or   100% spike reached in the last hour?

Hi Marty,

Hopefully the following can answer your question as it relates  to the particular model within the 2950 series family.

start looking at around page 1-13 of the attached install guide.
