Checking Status of Indicators on a Switch

Checking Status of Indicators on a Switch

Switch indicators reflect the current operating status of a switch. By observing these indicators, the status of each switch component can be quickly learned.

Reference Standard

Switch indicators are located on the front and rear panels of a switch.

Figure 9-14  Indicators on a data switch panel (front view)

Figure 9-15  Indicators on a data switch panel (rear view)

Table 9-15 lists the states and their meanings of the switch indicators shown in Figure 9-14 and Figure 9-15.

Indicator/Button

Color

Description

1

SYS: system status indicator

-

Off: The system is not running.

Green

  • Fast blinking: The system is starting.

  • Slow blinking: The system is running properly.

Red

Steady on:
  • The system failed to start.
  • One or more power supply modules have failed.
  • One or more fan modules have failed.
  • The card power consumption exceeds the rated power of the power module.

2

MST: stack master/slave indicator

-

Off: The switch is not a stack master.

Green

Steady on: The switch is a stack master or standalone switch.

Amber

Steady on: An error has occurred during stack master election or another stack error has occurred.

3

STAT: STAT mode indicator

-

Off: The STAT mode is not selected.

Green

Steady on: The STAT mode (default mode) is selected. If the STAT mode is selected, the service port indicator shows the port link or activity state.

4

SPEED: SPEED mode indicator

-

Off: The SPEED mode is not selected.

Green

Steady on: The SPEED mode is selected. If the SPEED mode is selected, the service port indicator shows the port speed state.

5

STACK: STACK mode indicator

-

Off: The STACK mode is not selected.

Green

Steady on: The STACK mode is selected. If the STACK mode is selected, the service port indicator shows the device stack ID.

6

MODE/ID: mode switching button and ID indicator

NOTE:
The mode switching button on the rear panel is integrated with the ID indicator. There is only an ID indicator and no mode switching button on the front panel.

Mode switching button: -

  • If you press the MODE button a first time, the SPEED indicator blinks green and the service port indicator shows the port speed state.
  • If you press the MODE button a second time, the STACK indicator blinks green and the service port indicator shows the device stack ID.
  • If you press the MODE button a third time, only the STAT indicator blinks green, indicating that the default mode is used. In addition, the service port indicator shows the port link or activity state.

If you do not press the MODE button within 45 seconds, only the STAT indicator blinks green and the SPEED and STACK indicators are off.

ID indicator: -

Off: The ID indicator is not used (default state).

ID indicator: blue

Steady on: The indicator identifies the device for maintenance. The ID indicator can be turned on or off remotely to help onsite engineers find the device to maintain.

Service port indicator (10GE optical port)

NOTE:

Arrowheads show the positions of ports. A down arrowhead indicates a port at the bottom, and an up arrowhead indicates a port at the top.

The meaning of the service port indicator varies with the current mode. For details, see Table 9-16.

8

Service port indicator (40GE optical port)

NOTE:

Arrowheads show the positions of ports. A down arrowhead indicates a port at the bottom, and an up arrowhead indicates a port at the top.

The meaning of the service port indicator varies with the current mode. For details, see Table 9-16.

When a 40GE port is configured as four 10GE ports, this indicator shows the status of a 10GE port. The sequence number of the indicated 10GE port is identified by indicators 40GE Breakout 1/2/3/4.

NOTE:

Each 40GE port has a single-color indicator, which shows the status of the 40GE port by default.When a 40GE port on the local device is not split and connects to four 10GE ports on the remote device through a one-to-four QSFP+ cable, the local 40GE port cannot go Up and the indicator is off.

9

10GE port sequence number indicators (40GE Breakout 1/2/3/4) (10GE port converted from a 40GE port)

NOTE:

Indicators 1, 2, 3, 4 turn on in cyclic order, with each indicator keeping on for 5s.

-

Off: A 40GE port is not split into four 10GE ports.

Green

Steady on: At least one 40GE port has been split into four 10GE ports.

When one or more 40GE ports are configured as four 10GE ports, these indicators identify the sequence number of the 10GE ports. The port indicator (8 in Figure 9-15) shows the status of a 10GE port converted from a 40GE port:

  • When Breakout indicator 1 is on, each 40GE interface indicator shows the status of the first 10GE interface derived from the corresponding 40GE interface.
  • When Breakout indicator 2 is on, each 40GE interface indicator shows the status of the second 10GE interface derived from the corresponding 40GE interface.
  • When Breakout indicator 3 is on, each 40GE interface indicator shows the status of the third 10GE interface derived from the corresponding 40GE interface.
  • When Breakout indicator 4 is on, each 40GE interface indicator shows the status of the fourth 10GE interface derived from the corresponding 40GE interface.

The following is an example:

The first 40GE interface shown in Figure 9-15 is split into four 10GE interfaces, and the second 40GE interface is not split.
  • When Breakout indicator 1 is on, the indicator of 40GE interface 1 shows the status of the first 10GE interface derived from 40GE interface 1, and the indicator of 40GE interface 2 shows the status of the second 40GE interface.
  • When Breakout indicator 2 is on, the indicator of 40GE interface 1 shows the status of the second 10GE interface derived from 40GE interface 1, and the indicator of 40GE interface 2 shows the status of the second 40GE interface.

ACT: USB deployment status indicator

-

Off: USB-based deployment is disabled (default state).

Green

  • Steady on: A USB-based deployment has been completed.

  • Blinking: The system is reading data from a USB flash drive.

Red

Steady on: USB-based deployment has failed.

11

L/A: ETH port indicator

-

Off: No link is established on the port.

Green

  • Steady on: A link is established on the port.

  • Blinking: The port is sending or receiving data.

Table 9-16 describes service interface indicators in various modes.

Green

NOTE:
This row describes the states and meanings of port indicator on a switch working in stack mode.
  • Off: Port indicators do not show stack IDs of corresponding devices.

  • Steady on: If the indicator of a port is steady on, the number of this port is the stack ID of the device.

Procedure

  • Check front-panel and rear-panel indicators of the switch based on Figure 9-14 and Figure 9-15 and determine whether each module is working correctly.

Exception Handling

If a module is faulty, rectify the fault. For details, see CloudEngine 7800&6800&5800 V100R003C10 Product Documentation. If the fault persists, contact technical support engineers.
