For connecting multimode fiber how do we check Rx or Tx are properly working without breaking?

For connecting multimode fiber there is some functionality available in cisco like UDLD and loopguard, what about on extreme switches?

HI Alok

you can use the below commands to see if there is RX or TX errors

sh port rxerrors port-number
sh port txerrors port-number

for a specific port use like this
sh port 1:2 txerrors
sh port 1:2 rxerrors

Hi Alok, Im no sure of this is the same as UDLD, but extreme has ELRP.
