Uplink port capabilities on Stacks


I need to find out the port (speed) capabilities for some stacks. Is it possible through EXOS?
The goal is to know, which speed is maximum supported on the uplinkports. i dont need to know which SFP is currently insert.

If there is no similar command to Ciscos "show port capabilities", how can i get the model of each Stack member?

Hi, Holger!

There is a lot of command for to see what type of switch is stack member
My favorite is #show odometers
#show odometers Service First Recorded
Field Replaceable Units Days Start Date
---------------------------------------------------------------
Slot-1 : X670V-48x 337
Slot-2 : X670V-48x 335

Hi Holger, Try this command:

Slot-1 Stack.7 # show stacking stack-ports
Stack Topology is a Ring
Slot Port Select Node MAC Address Port State Flags Speed

*1 1 Native 00:04:96:99:6d:dc Operational CB 21G
*1 2 Native 00:04:96:99:6d:dc Operational C- 21G
2 1 Native 00:04:96:99:99:9d Operational C- 21G
2 2 Native 00:04:96:99:99:9d Operational CB 21G

Flags: (C) Control path is active, (B) Port is Blocked [/code]

For port capabilities, this may be helpful:

Also, if you are just trying to get port capabilities for one slot of the stack, you can specify the slot number with a wildcard for the port. See the example below for slot 2.
Slot-1 Extreme.4 # show port 2:* configuration no-refresh Port Configuration Port Virtual Port Link Auto Speed Duplex Flow Load Media router State State Neg Cfg Actual Cfg Actual Cntrl Master Pri Red ================================================================================ 2:1 VR-Default E A ON AUTO 1000 AUTO FULL NONE 1:1 UTP 2:2 VR-Default E R ON AUTO AUTO UTP 2:3 VR-Default E R ON AUTO AUTO UTP ... 2:49 VR-Default E R OFF 10000 FULL NONE 2:50 VR-Default E R OFF 10000 FULL NONE 2:51 VR-Default E R OFF 10000 FULL NONE 2:52 VR-Default E R OFF 10000 FULL NONE ================================================================================ > indicates Port Display Name truncated past 8 characters Link State: A-Active, R-Ready, NP-Port Not Present, L-Loopback Port State: D-Disabled,E-Enabled, Media: %-Licensed, !-Unsupported, $-Restricted Media Red: * - use "show port info detail" for redundant media type Flow Cntrl: Shows link partner's abilities. NONE if Auto Neg is OFF

Hi,

Thanks.....

i suggest that the output of show ports configuration no-refresh only shows the current speed(current insert SFP), but not the maximal port speed which is provided by the switch.

Is this right?

That's correct.

I've asked one of our developers to let me know if he comes across an easy-to-access data structure that contains this information. At first pass, it looks like port capabilities are stored in such a way that we can't easily retrieve them with python scripting. I'll update the thread if there's anything new to share.
