show counters commands

I have a 3500 switch with IOS of 12.0 that does not accept the " show counters " command. I cleared them and want to see what ports are not being used so I can move the users over to a new switch. What is the correct form of show counters?

If you're looking for ports being used you should be able to use command such as "show int description" this will at least tell you if a port is up or down.

 

Here's a snippt from a 3550;

 

jcs08-3550#show int description
Interface                      Status         Protocol Description
Vl1                            up             up       
Vl500                          up             up       
Fa0/1                          admin down     down     AVAILABLE
Fa0/2                          admin down     down     AVAILABLE
Fa0/3                          down           down     NMC Workstation 206
Fa0/4                          down           down     NMC Workstation 207
Fa0/5                          down           down     NMC Workstation 208
Fa0/6                          down           down     NMC Workstation 209
Fa0/7                          down           down     NMC Workstation 210
Fa0/8                          up             up       AC6
Fa0/9                          down           down     NMC Workstation 212
Fa0/10                         down           down     NMC Workstation 213

our computers stay on all the time and we are 24-7 but people in departments might be home. These pcs will show as "up".  Clear counters then whatch with show counters is what I am looking for.

Hello,

 

I would use

sh int | i FastE|0 packets output|0 packets input

I not sure, if it works with 12.0

Got this:

 

     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns
     25440 packets output, 3498027 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes
     61430 packets output, 20646611 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes, 0 no buffer
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 packets input, 0 bytes, 0 no buffer
     0 packets output, 0 bytes, 0 underruns

 

didnt tell me what ports were zero....

Maybe you have a gigabitswitch. Then you should use

sh int | i GigabitE|0 packets output|0 packets input

didnt work.......there is a show counters command that is worded differently I am looking for that command

sh int count

nope. 

Thats ok. Theres not that many people on that switch. I can get with whos on it as I bring them over.
