switchShow
Displays switch and port status.
Synopsis
switchshow
switchshow [-slot slot] -portname
switchshow [-portcount |-iscsi | -qsfp]
Description
Use this command to display switch, blade, and port status information. Output may vary depending on the switch model.
When used without operands, switchShow displays the following information:
switchName
Switch name.
switchType
Switch model and revision numbers.
switchState
Switch state: Online, Offline, Testing, or Faulty. When you issue the switchcfgPersistentDisable command followed by the switchEnable command, the switch state changes to, "Online (Temporary)". The switch remains in this state until you issue the switchcfgPersistentEnable command.
switchMode
Switch operation mode: Access Gateway (if AG is enabled).
switchRole
Switch role: Principal, Subordinate, or Disabled.
switchDomain
Switch domain ID: 1 to 239.
switchId
Switch embedded port D_ID.
switchWwn
Switch world wide name (WWN).
switchBeacon
Switch beaconing state: On or Off.
zoning
The name of the active zone is displayed in parentheses. Active only when Access Gateway mode is disabled.
FC Router
FC Router state: On or Off.
FC Router BB Fabric ID
The backbone fabric ID for FC routing.
Fabric Name
The name assigned to the fabric. The fabric name is set with the fabricName command.
Allow XISL Use
Allows the switch to use interswitch links (XILS) in the base fabric to carry traffic to this logical switch. Values are ON or OFF.
LS Attributes
On a switch in Virtual Fabric mode, this field displays logical switch attributes, including the fabric ID associated with the logical switch, the switch role (default switch or base switch), and the fabric Address Mode (0, 2 or 3). If Virtual Fabrics are disabled, only the Address Mode is displayed. The fabric Address Mode value is set by the configure command (Enable a 256 Area Limit).
The switch summary is followed by one-line description for non-EX_Ports and one or two lines for EX_Ports:
Index
Port index is a number between 0 and the maximum number of supported ports on the platform. The port index identifies the port number relative to the switch.
Slot

cu
Displays when the copper (default) GbE port ge0 or ge1 is active (refer to portCfgGeMediaType for more information). If the optical GbE port is active and an SFP is installed (copper or optical), "id" is displayed. If nothing is installed on the optical port, the Media field shows "--". The "cu" field also displays for interchassis links (ICLs).
id
Serial ID. Indicates that an SFP is installed. Use sfpShow to get more information about the SFP, including the serial number.
Speed
The speed of the port. Valid port speeds include the following:

Proto
Protocol support by GbE port. Valid protocols include the following:
ISCSI
The port supports ISCSI (deprecated).
FCIP
The port supports FCIP.
FCoE
The port supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet.
comment
Optionally displays one of the following:
Copper or Optical
Displays which GbE port is currently active: Copper indicates that the RJ45 GbE port is currently active. Only copper connections are accepted (default). Optical indicates that the currently active GbE port accepts both copper and optical connections (SFPs). This parameter is set by the portCfgGeMediaType command, and applies only to the ge0 and ge1 ports on the Brocade 7800.
Disabled
The port is disabled. Port disable reasons may be stated in parenthesis:
Disabled (FMS Mode)
The port is disabled and in Ficon Server Management mode.
Disabled (No area available for PID assignment)
The port is disabled because a PID could not be assigned for the stated reason.
Disabled (persistent)
This port has been disabled with the portCfgPersistentDisable command.
Disabled (Persistently disabled port)
This port has been disabled for unspecified reasons.
Bypassed
The port is bypassed (loop only).
Loopback
The port is in loopback mode.
D_Port
Diagnostic port; displays the world wide name (WWN) of the remote switch.
E_Port
Fabric port; displays the world wide name (WWN) and name of the attached switch. If the port is configured as an EX_Port, the WWN of the attached switch is the same as the router.
F_Port
Point-to-point port; displays the WWN of the attached N_Port. If that specific F_Port receives 1 FDISK frame, switchShow displays the total number of NPIV Public ports as 1, for example: F_Port 1 NPort + 1 NPIV devices.
G_Port
Point-to-point port, but not yet E_Port or F_Port.
L_Port
Loop port; displays the number of NL_Ports.
EX_Port
Router port; displays the WWN of the attached edge switch.
VF_Port
FCoE Virtual F_Port. For these ports, the number of NPIV or external device logins is displayed ("n VN-Port(s)"), instead of the WWN of the internal port.
VF_Port Disabled
FCoE Virtual F_Port is disabled.
Mirror Port
The port is a mirror port.
(Trunk master)
The port is the master port in a group of trunking ports.
(Trunk port, master is port #x)
The port is configured as a trunking port; the master port is port #x.
(upstream)
The E_Port is an upstream path toward the principal switch of the fabric.
(downstream)
The E_Port is a downstream path away from the principal switch of the fabric.
FICON Persistent DID
This port has been disabled, because the switch could not obtain its configuration domain ID during the fabric reconfiguration when fmsmode was enabled. See the ficonCupSet help page for more information.
Fabric ID conflict
Two different fabrics have been assigned the same fabric ID. Applicable only to EX_Ports and Logical Fabric environments.
Fabric ID oversubscribed
One fabric has been assigned two different fabric IDs (EX_Ports only).
AoQ
Application-oriented QoS; indicates that an F_Port or N_Port has negotiated a link that is capable of quality of service (QoS). Both sides of the link have QoS capability and agreed on the protocol. The link could be between an HBA and an Access Gateway, between an Access Gateway and an edge switch, or between an HBA and an edge switch.
LB mode
If the Access Gateway cannot negotiate QoS capabilities with the edge switch, an HBA connected to the Access Gateway will not be able to negotiate a QoS link with the Access Gateway.
(logical)
A Server Application Optimization (SAO) license is required to enable QoS at the HBA. An Adaptive Networking license is required both at the Access Gateway and the edge switch to enable QoS.
(logical)
Indicates a logical port. The switchShow output shows all logical ports currently present in the logical switch. The command displays -1 for the slot for logical ports and the user port number for slot port. The logical port numbers are not persistent and may change when the logical interswitch links (LISLs) are deleted and recreated. A logical port is shown to be in one of the following states: E_Port (if the port is online), offline, or disabled. When the port is disabled, a reason is provided.
segmented
Indicates a segmented or disabled port along with one of the following segmentation reasons:
(Encrypt incompatible)
Port segmentation or port disable due to mismatched configurations.
(Compress incompatible)
Port segmentation or port disable due to mismatched configurations.
(Encrypt limitation)
Port segmentation or port disable due to reaching encryption limitations.
(Compress limitation)
Port segmentation or port disable due to reaching compression limitations.
(Authentication failure)
Port segmentation or port disable due to authentication failure.
(Type mismatch)
D_Port configuration mismatch between local and remote switch.
When used with the -slot option, the command displays the following blade-specific information:
slot
Slot number.
Blade Type
Type of blade, for example, Core blade or AP blade. Refer to the slotShow command for a listing of supported blade types.
ID
A numeric blade ID that specifies the blade type. Refer to the slotShow command for a listing of supported blade IDs.
Status
Enabled or disabled.
Notes
The execution of this command is subject to Virtual Fabric or Admin Domain restrictions that may be in place. Refer to Chapter 1, "Using Fabric OS Commands" and Appendix A, "Command Availability" for details.
On the Brocade 8000, the Proto column identifies the FCoE ports of the switch. For all FCoE ports, the speed is 10 Gbps. The default configuration of an FCoE port is an F_Port configuration. After a successful reboot switchShow displays all FCoE ports as online. For each FCoE port, the FCoE controller WWN is shown. FCoE ports are not configurable with the Fabric OS port commands. Use the FCoE commands instead.
If a port is configured as a long distance port, the long distance level is displayed in the format of Lx, where x represents the long distance level number. See portCfgLongDistance for the level description.
When a port is configured as an N_Port and is online, switchShow displays its type as an N_Port. Also, switchShow displays the WWN of the border switch attached to this N_Port as a 24-bit Port Identifier assigned to this port by the enterprise fabric.
In an AD context, if one of the L_Ports or NPIV Ports is a part of the current AD, the complete device information attached to the port is displayed.
Operands
This command has the following operands:
-slot slot
Displays blade information. You can specify this operand with -portname, but not with any other operand.
-portname
Displays the name for each port on the switch. The port name is set by the portName command. You can specify this operand with -slot, but not with any other operand.
-portcount
Displays the number of ports on the switch. This operand is exclusive.
-iscsi
Displays the number of ports on the iSCSI sessions associated with GbE ports in a switch. This operand is exclusive. (Deprecated)
-qsfp
Displays the output of the switchShow command with a QSFP column added. If a QSFP is installed on the port, the QSFP number is displayed for the port. This number corresponds to the physical QSFP number that can be found on the front of each Core Blade. A double dash (--) indicates that no QSFP is present.
Examples
To display the port count:
switch:admin> switchshow -portcount
FC ports = 198, GE ports = 12
To display GbE ports with iSCSI sessions:
switch:admin> switchshow -iscsi
