Find Unused Ports Nexus

_Chris_
Beginner
Beginner

I am familiar with finding unused ports in Cisco IOS but I am having trouble doing this in my Nexus 4000 Series. I have found commands such as show interface status or show interface counters... I am looking for something similar to the sh int accounting command in IOS where it specifically tells you "No traffic sent or received". I have also used the sh int status down on the Nexus, is this as close as I can get?

Most cased Nexus used in  DC Environment(in your case same).

then this is not access kind of switch, so there is no dynamic user PC go ON and Off.

 

you are correct down consider as unused ports. if you have any script also compare below "0" 

 

RX
0 unicast packets 0 multicast packets 0 broadcast packets
0 input packets 0 bytes
0 jumbo packets 0 storm suppression bytes
0 runts 0 giants 0 CRC 0 no buffer
0 input error 0 short frame 0 overrun 0 underrun 0 ignored
0 watchdog 0 bad etype drop 0 bad proto drop 0 if down drop
0 input with dribble 0 input discard
0 Rx pause
TX
0 unicast packets 0 multicast packets 0 broadcast packets
0 output packets 0 bytes
0 jumbo packets
0 output error 0 collision 0 deferred 0 late collision
0 lost carrier 0 no carrier 0 babble 0 output discard

 

so you are sure it was unused.

 

Make Sense ?
