Cisco Interface Interpretation

Hello Experts

Can someone please take a look at the output of our interface and let me know how to determine the following over one hour:

Average bps

Min/Max Average bps

Min/Max Average Percent Utilization

Total Bytes Transferred

Average Packets per second

Total Packets Transferred

GigabitEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up

  Hardware is PQ3_TSEC, address is 7c69.f6f5.c670 (bia 7c69.f6f5.c670)

  Description: ** IP Connect Ethernet Flex ONEA915865 CSAC525324 ICUK711776 VPNN600200 **

  Internet address is

  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 20000 Kbit/sec, DLY 100 usec,

     reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 2/255

  Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set

  Keepalive set (10 sec)

  Full Duplex, 100Mbps, media type is RJ45

  output flow-control is unsupported, input flow-control is unsupported

  ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00

  Last input 00:00:00, output 00:00:00, output hang never

  Last clearing of "show interface" counters 04:36:23

  Input queue: 0/75/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0

  Queueing strategy: Class-based queueing

  Output queue: 0/1000/0 (size/max total/drops)

  30 second input rate 215000 bits/sec, 68 packets/sec

  30 second output rate 123000 bits/sec, 68 packets/sec

     1631166 packets input, 1568141970 bytes, 0 no buffer

     Received 0 broadcasts (0 IP multicasts)

     0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles

     0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored

     0 watchdog, 0 multicast, 0 pause input

     1216265 packets output, 169362266 bytes, 0 underruns

     0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets

     0 unknown protocol drops

     0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred

     0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier, 0 pause output

     0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

Really appreciate your help

From one output it is not possible to get answers to these questions. If you get one output, wait an hour, and then get another output then some of your questions could be answered (total bytes and total packets). And from those figures you could calculate the average bps and average packets per second. The only way to get the values for min/max/average would be to take frequent ouputs and the accuracy of these answers would depend on how frequently you got the outputs.





Thanks Richard.
