Show speed/duplex and negotiation status

I would like to be able to identify the speed/duplex on ports and whether the setting has been forced or auto negotiated.  At the moment is that I am trying to determine which desktop PCs and switch ports have been forced as our global Win7 desktop build standard is auto/auto, whereas our old XP build differed in some offices.  I am currently having to do this check manually across about 600 switches.  I would therefore love to see the speed/duplex status as it appears in Cisco show interface status output: e.g. a-1000/a-full for 1G/FDX or 100/full for 100Mbps/FDX forced so I can tell if a port has been auto negotiated or not.  UDT is very useful for me to get the PC names on the ports so I can pass them to the desktop teams, but I still have to run commands manually on the switches to check speed and duplex.  This feature would also be useful to flag ports have autonegotiated to 100Mbps/half whic this signals that auto negotiation has been unsuccessful.

  • All that info you desire is included in the resulting or running Switch Port Mapper from the Engineer's Toolset.  Which (I believe) is free to install on APE's, so all your staff can use their features from your pollers.

    Or, until you get what you want from your Feature Request, how about running some regularly scheduled job with a script against all your devices?  Something that scripts like

    "sho int count err".  Watch the section that shows collisions and you'll find your half-duplex devices.
