Not sure exactly what you want that you cannot find on the show interfaces or show port, but try these:

On CatOS, try show counters b/p or show port counters b/p.

On IOS, try show int interface counters all. There are various options that you can see with show int interface counters ?.

Hope this is the information you were after.

Sorry, if you mean the % of the bandwidth utilised, then I'm afraid it does not give that figure directly. You would have to poll the counters at regular intervals, and do the calculation. The best way to do that is using SNMP and a tool like MTRG, then you can do it without any command line intervention.

Maybe I don't understand your requirement yet, but for IOS what is wrong with the figures given by show int? Those give you the clculated exponential average of rxload and txload directly.

As for CatOS, I don't think there is any way to read the bandwidth utilisation directly.

ON IOS

show interface summary

Gives RXBS and TXBS and RXPS and TXPS and also gives the queue depths

I haven't confirmed how accurate these are or what the dtata capture is ie if instantaneous or 5 minute average output I would ass-u-me that because it has queue depths that it is instantaneous

If you want to look at 5 minute or 30 second averages change your load-interval to suit and do the following

sh int | inc protocol is up | inc 000 bits

CATOS I am not so familiar but because you are lookingf at CATOS this tells me you are looking at switches only and the these commands were available in 12.1 software
