Is possible to monitor speed port?

We have hundreds of APs negotiating at 1Gbps and we would like to monitor the speed port on the HP switch because sometimes we've found a cable issue making those ports to renegotiate at 10 or 100 Mbps. Is it possible? I'm not referring to a bandwith sensor.

Use iMC monitoring tool or any monitoring tool

Re: Is possible to monitor speed port?

You are able to define alarms based on snmp traps or syslog, so if they are sent when the interface changes speed you could be alerted.

Under performance management global index settings, you can create performance indices off of hw mib OIDs, so if port speed is in the mib you could plot it over time., and alert on thresholds.

The latest version has a custom report feature that can list the links with port speed, ID and ip on either end, so you can find where one doesn't equal the other. Downloadable to excel and some other formats like csv, so you could semi automate it.

all those are some assembly required, but no built in functions specifically for your use case that I could find
