EXOS equivalent for EOS "show port advertise"?

    Hi,
    with EOS I can use "show port advertise" to see the advertised speed of a network device which is connected to the switch, f.e.:
    SWITCHNAME(su)->show port advertise ge.1.5
    ge.1.5 capability advertised remote
    ----------------------------------------------
    10BASE-T yes yes yes
    10BASE-TFD yes yes yes
    100BASE-TX yes yes yes
    100BASE-TXFD yes yes yes
    1000BASE-X no no no
    1000BASE-XFD no no no
    1000BASE-T no no yes
    1000BASE-TFD yes yes yes
    other no no no
    pause yes no no
    Apause yes no no
    Spause yes no no
    Bpause yes yes yes

    [/code]Is there a command in EXOS to get the same information?

    Hi htw,

    I don't think there is no native EXOS CLI command to show you the same but there is a debug command as below example although it's not that pretty to see.

    BCM.0> port 2[/code]PORT: Status (* indicates PHY link up)[/code] *ge1 (EnabledLS(SW Auto((1GFD,pause_rx) Ability (fd = 10MB,100MB,1000MB hd = 10MB,100MB,1000MB intf = sgmii medium = copper pause = pause_tx,pause_rx,pause_asymm lb = none,MAC,PHY flags = autoneg )Local (fd = 10MB,100MB,1000MB hd = 10MB,100MB,1000MB intf = medium = pause = pause_tx,pause_rx lb = flags = )Remote (fd = 10MB,100MB,1000MB hd = 10MB,100MB intf = medium = pause = pause_rx lb = flags = )Stad(00:04:96:a1:af:38) STP(Forward) Lrn(ARL,FWD) UtPri(0) Pfm(FloodNone) IF(SGMII) PH(Auto) Max_frame(1518) MDIX(Auto, Normal) Medium(Copper) VLANFILTER(3) Mac driver(UniMAC Driver)[/code]
    From the output you can find advertised speed of local and remote port and others.
    Since it is required to enter a debug mode to get this info, kindly contact our GTAC engineer to issue an OTP for you.

    Hi,
    how long is a OTP valid? Since we need this command quite often on our access switches for client debugging and testing purposes it would be helpful to have this as regular command in a future EXOS release.

    we miss this too very often

    2ways to get that in a future release... 1) open a feature request 2) call 30times a day for a OTP I think option2 will get you the result faster 😉

    As far as I remember it is for 60 minutes.
    Well, there's a lot of nice things, like entire shell with tcpdump and else. :)
    But then Extreme should have good audit log to validate warranty claims.
    IMO it is more probable to get couple of commands to EXOS CLI, like recently diff has been imported. And more extensive debug section, that would be useful a lot and also would help GTAC take over smaller amount of cases.

    Debug passwords are good for 59 minutes once the challenge is generated. Once you're in, there is no expiration as long as your session stays active/logged-in.

    As of EXOS 15.4, you don't need to be in debug mode to get a packet capture. Here's two articles covering how it works:
