Troubleshooting Interface Flapping

[ Edited ]

We have two ICX 7750 switches in a stack.  Eth X/1/23 on both switches are part of a LAG to a Meraki MS320 switch.  The primary port, Eth 1/1/23 uses a active Twinax cable, and the other uses a 10GB LR SFP+ module.  The primary port keeps going up and down.  The log indicates that it all happens within a second.  Its happened 4 times within the last hour.  I have already replaced the twinax cable and my next step is to try a different port on the ICX 7750.  Please see below.

I do not see any errors on the Brocade or the Meraki side of the link.  I only see the events for the link going down and up.  We have an identical "setup" (media and LAG) from Eth X/1/24 to another Meraki MS320 switch, but that doesn't seem to be experiencing any problems.  Other than trying to isolate the problem by replacing media/modules, switching ports, or identifying errors are there any other built in CLI tools that could help me determine what is causing this?
