My questions - Which commands I can use to identify which servers are communicating, data transferring and using ports on above mentioned subnets?? where do I need run these commands?

 

We have campus switch Cisco 4500 switch which has end users coming from below subnets.

Hi,

You can use "show interface x/x" and monitor the input and output rates of any specific interface. If you have a monitoring system, you can also use that to see the amount of bandwidth (tx/rx) on one or multiple interfaces.

Thank you Reza.

 

The servers are the VMware virtual machines. Can you assist on this further as the VMs will not be physically connected to switches???
