6300M switch

    Posted Jul 13, 2022 01:43 PM
    I've been looking for a command for my 6300M switches that would show real time statistics on a port.
    Does anyone out there know if such a command exists?
    I tried all the "show interface 1/1/28" different options but none seem to give me what I'm looking for.
    More specifically I'm trying to determine if the port is being saturated.

    commands I've tried:
    # show interface 1/1/28
    brief Show information in brief format
    dom Show transceiver diagnostics information
    downshift-enable Show downshift-enable information
    error-statistics Show interface error statistics
    extended Show additional interface statistics
    fault-monitor Show fault monitor information
    link-status Show link status information
    physical Show physical interface information
    qos Show QoS info for the interface
    queues Show tx queue info for the interface
    statistics Show interface statistics
    transceiver Show transceiver information

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated

    I normally use this

    PE2# sh int 1/1/15 | b Rate
    Rate collection interval: 300 seconds

    Rate RX TX Total (RX+TX)
    ---------------- -------------------- -------------------- --------------------
    Mbits / sec 328.40 328.40 656.80
    KPkts / sec 554.73 554.73 1109.46
    Unicast 554.73 554.73 1109.46
    Multicast 0.00 0.00 0.00
    Broadcast 0.00 0.00 0.00
    Utilization % 3.28 3.28 6.56

    Hi DWan, we have a way to see Tx/Rx rate values also for a LAG (MC or not) logical interface? unfortunately the output of show interface lag <lag-id> reports in tabular forms only Statistic values and not also Rate values...

    Hi Daryl,
    As the previous comment mentioned, that command on the 6300M switch only provides us with the static values.
    Here is an example of the output:

    CB2# show interface 1/1/28 | b Rate
    Type 5G-SmartRate
    qos trust none
    Speed 1000 Mb/s
    Auto-negotiation is on
    Flow-control: off
    Error-control: off
    MDI mode: MDI
    VLAN Mode: access
    Access VLAN: 1126
    12904901 total packets 1438149939 total bytes
    12302355 unicast packets
    602424 multicast packets
    122 broadcast packets
    0 errors 0 dropped
    0 CRC/FCS
    73713888 total packets 9423144384 total bytes
    23836578 unicast packets
    33676316 multicast packets

    On a AOS-CX 10.08 (Aruba 8360) I can see this on a simple physical interface (Tx/Rx rates on the LAG aren't available, only statistics):

    Aren't you able to see a similar output on your Aruba 6300 with the very same command applied to a single physical interface?

    I don't see that output on the my 6300m or on my 8325

    I'm running 
    Version      : FL.10.05.0021.    on my 6300m
    Version      : GL.10.05.0011.    on my 8325

    I think this is due to software release, you could be running older code that doesn't show the rate.

    Try upgrading if possible.

    Can confirm that output on 8325 running 10.09 matches what parnassus sees..​

    So it's just a matter of upgrading those Aruba CX switches to a supported ArubaOS-CX version (currently AOS-CX 10.06, 10.07, 10.08, 10.09 or 10.10...with a preferece, I add, for 10.09 SSR and 10.10 LSR): among other things AOS-CX 10.05 is unsupported and had been deprecated and Aruba customers were properly advised to upgrade to newer supported ArubaOS-CX releases.
