    Monitoring the Status of Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces

    Purpose

    Display the status of Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. You can use the delta keyword to view baselined statistics. You can use the brief keyword to view the operational status of all configured interfaces.

    Note: The E120 and E320 routers output for monitor and show commands is identical to output from other E Series routers, except that the E120 and E320 router output also includes information about the adapter identifier in the interface specifier (slot/adapter/port).

    Note: The show interfaces gigabitEthernet and show interfaces tenGigabitEthernet commands display similar information.
