SecureStack Conversion from MIB2 to Conventional Port Numbering

SecureStack C3, C2, B3, B2, A2

Some log messages, for example as outlined in 10798 and 12786, make reference to port numbers within the range of 1 to 423. This document explains how to convert from that number to a unit/port number, then to a full conventional port number in "<type>.<unit#>.<port#>" format.

The given port number refers to the originating MIB2 Interface. The associated physical port may be determined by means of a fairly simple conversion, as explained below.

52 MIB2 interfaces are allocated to each of the possible eight Stack units, plus six are allocated to the LAGs.

That is:
  • Interfaces 001-052 are assigned to Unit 1.
  • Interfaces 053-104 are assigned to Unit 2.
  • Interfaces 105-156 are assigned to Unit 3.
  • Interfaces 157-208 are assigned to Unit 4.
  • Interfaces 209-260 are assigned to Unit 5.
  • Interfaces 261-312 are assigned to Unit 6.
  • Interfaces 313-364 are assigned to Unit 7.
  • Interfaces 365-416 are assigned to Unit 8.
  • Interfaces 418-423 are assigned to the LAG aggregators.
For example; based on the above list, port 160 is the fourth port on unit 4.
To confirm this (and resolve to the conventional port number), use the 'show port counters' command:
B3(su)->show port counters *.4.4

Port : ge.4.4 MIB2 Interface: 160 Bridge Port : 4
