XOS Stack Individual Member Uptime

XOS Stack Individual Member Uptime

New Contributor III
how can I see the individual uptime of switches in a stack ? We have switches in a stack rebooting and when I telnet into each slot it still only shows the uptime of the system.

you can telnet directly to the slot to get that information. Uptime for a stack will not change unless the stack completely goes down.  Example output below:

System UpTime:    10 days 15 hours 8 minutes 40 seconds

Slot:             Slot-1 *                     Slot-2
                  ------------------------     ------------------------
Current State:    MASTER                       BACKUP (In Sync)

Output after getting the output directly from Slot-2:

#relevant output is boot time:

Slot-1 EXOSTACK.2 # telnet slot 2

Entering character mode
Escape character is '^]'.

telnet session telnet0 on /dev/ptyb0

"show system" always shows the "System Uptime" of the hole stack, but the "Boot Time" (shown three lines above the uptime) is the individual boot time of the respective slot your are logged in to.  The uptime of the node you have to calculate by yourself, I think.

Thank you Nikolay, that is much easier than going into each slot individually.

Just tried it and it worked for me.

Yes thanks I saw that, but system uptime still shows the master uptime. You have to look at "Boot time" on the output of "show switch". You can see here the switch booted an hour ago but the uptime is still 9 days:

Boot Time: Fri Sep 7 12:46:42 2018
Boot Count: 15
Next Reboot: None scheduled
System UpTime: 9 days 20 hours 43 minutes 56 seconds

In the end you should really have a command that you can use from the master switch, even like show slot 1 should show you uptime in there instead of having to telnet into each slot. annoying.
