enable led locator
Configures the front panel LEDs to flash so a switch can be easily located in a crowded lab/data center.
Limit the LED display time to seconds before returning to normal operation.
|seconds||The length of time to display the flashing LEDs. The default is 300 seconds. The maximum value is 1 week (604800 seconds).|
|none||Display LED pattern until disabled.|
|pattern||Configures the LED display pattern.|
|alternating||Groups of LEDs are lit in alternating patterns (Default).|
|flash-all||All LEDs flash on and off.|
|high-to-low||LED's are lit in descending port order.|
|scanner||A group of 4 LED's is lit back and forth.|
|slot slot||Slot number.|
The default timeout length is 300 seconds.
The default pattern is alternating.
Use this command to enable the front panel LEDs to flash so that a switch can be easily located in a crowded lab, or data center.
Bridge Port Extenders (BPEs)
The LED locator service works for both directly attached and cascaded bridge port extenders (BPEs). Only the default LED pattern of alternating is supported by the BPEs. This causes alternating flashing of groups of 8 port LEDs.
The following example enables the front panel LEDs to flash in an alternating pattern for one hour on all slots:
enable led locator timeout 3600 pattern alternating all
