Readers will learn how to verify the statistics of inserted SFP/SFP+ modules on an EdgeSwitch (ES) or EdgeSwitch X (ES-X).
Verifying the SFP/SFP+ Modules
The UFiber Multi-Mode fiber SFP module (UF-MM-1G) will be used to interconnect the EdgeSwitch and the EdgeSwitch X.
The Ubiquiti branded SFP/SFP+ modules and DAC cables are officially supported and compatible with all EdgeSwitch and EdgeSwitch X models:
1Gbps SFP modules
10Gbps SFP+ modules
10Gbps DAC cables
UDC-1DAC cable (1m)
UDC-2DAC cable (2m)
UDC-3DAC cable (3m)
More information about these modules and DAC cables can be found here. The SFP/SFP+ ports can be configured like any other interface. See the SFP/SFP+ Interface Options article for more information.
Follow the steps below to verify the statistics of the inserted module on both devices:
Navigate to the Dashboard tab and hover over the icon for the SFP port in the Port summary section.
The following information is displayed in this section:
Traffic Received / SentTotal Rx and Tx traffic seen on this port.
Frame errors / dropsTotal amount of dropped frames or frames with errors.
Inserted moduleSFP/SFP+ manufacturer and model number.
TemperatureReported temperature of the SFP/SFP+ module in Celsius (C).
RX / TX powerThe received and sent optical signal level in dBm.
Connected deviceInformation on neighboring device if available (MAC address, port ID and manufacturer).
If there is no information displayed in the Inserted module section, then it is possible that the used SFP/SFP+ module is not (fully) compatible with the device. Note that only the usage of Ubiquiti branded SFP/SFP+ modules and DAC cables is officially supported. If a module is detected but the link is down, try forcing the port speed and duplex values on both devices. See the SFP/SFP+ Interface Options article for more information.
On EdgeSwitch (ES) models, it is also possible to view this information using the CLI:
Enter the following commands from privileged mode:
