Q

Show Int command

I have a 50 Ethernet circuit going from my switch to a Nortel ADM over a fiber span to another Nortel ADM to my switch. How can I find out my bandwidth utilization quickly and with old school math by using commands in my router or switch. Basically is there any specific equations from the Show Int command?
It's hard to say exactly what you can do since I don't know what brand of Ethernet switch you are using. Many Cisco products will show you a 5 minute average utilization when you show int, but that usually only works on router ports, not switch ports. If your switch supports SNMP, the best bet is to setup one of the many network management systems available.
