Hi,

 

islshow is giving the information about the ISL's only. I need to check the bandwidth utilization and metrics cost.

you ask for monitoring ISL, and not about traffic or utilization.

with the command "portperfshow" you can get the info you need.

 

all this details are descripted as well in Command Reference Manual.

 

BTW, Trunking License is another story, and have nothing to do with Port Monitoring or similary.

Thanks for your help.

 

I wanted to see the output like trunkshow command. I got the details with the help of portperfshow -rx -tx .
