Output Fields

The output from the show interfaces media command includes fields that display interface media-specific information. These fields are also included in the show interfaces interface-name command for each particular interface type, and the information provided in the fields is unique to each interface type.

One field unique to the show interfaces media command is interface-type errors (for example, SONET errors). This field appears for channelized E3, channelized T3, channelized OC, E1, E3, SONET, T1, and T3 interfaces. The information provided in this output field is also provided in the output from the show interfaces interface-name command. (For example, for SONET interfaces, these fields are SONET section, SONET line, and SONET path). For a description of errors, see the chapter with the particular interface type in which you are interested.
