On the Catalyst switches running a CatOS, you can easily check the overall backplane usage using the show system command. This command is very useful because it will give you not only the current usage of the switch backplane, but also specifies the peak usage (and its date). An unusual peak utilization shows you whether there has ever been a bridging loop or not on this device.
You can configure backplane threshold detection by using a high threshold as a percentage. When backplane traffic goes over the specified threshold, compared with the previous traffic poll, a syslog message is generated. However, if you specify a 100-percent threshold (the default), no syslog message is generated.
Thanks, however, the 2950 and 2924XL series that I know, do not run CatOS, but IOS. Given the silence in the past week, I'm just assuming this impossible for the moment - would be a nice Feature Request, or am I really the only person interested.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
