Network Port LEDs in an EX 8200 series Switch

Each network port on the faceplate of a line card in an EX 8200 series switch has two LEDs.

Figure 1 shows the network port LEDs on a 48-port RJ-45 line card.

The LEDs labeled Link/Activity in Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3 indicate link activity.

Table 1 describes the Link/Activity LED.

LED

Color

State and Description

Link/Activity

Unlit

The port is not active.

Green

  • On steadily—The port and the link are active, but there is no link activity.
  • Blinking—The port and the link are active, and there is link activity.

The LEDs labeled Status in Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3 indicate the status of one of the three port parameters. The port parameters are administrative status, duplex mode, and speed.

Table 2 describes the Status LED. From the Idle menu of the LCD, use the Enter button on the LCD panel to toggle between the ADM, DPX, and SPD indicators.

State, Color, and Description

Status

LED: ADM

Indicates the administrative status (enabled or disabled). The status indicators are:

  • Green—Port is enabled.
  • Unlit—Port is disabled.

LED: DPX

Indicates the duplex mode. The status indicators are:

  • Green—Port is set to full-duplex mode.
  • Unlit—Port is not set to full-duplex mode.

LED: SPD

Indicates the speed. The speed indicators are different in the three line cards.

The speed indicators for 48-port RJ-45 line cards are:

  • Unlit—10 Mbps
  • Green—Blinking—100 Mbps
  • Green—On steadily—1000 Mbps

The speed indicators for 48-port SFP line cards are:

  • Unlit—Less than 1 Gbps
  • Green—1 Gbps

The speed indicators for 8-port SFP+ line cards are:

  • Unlit—Less than 10 Gbps
  • Green—10 Gbps
