Alarm Descriptions:

The different modes that can be set on an LED are:

  • ADM (administrative status)
  • SPD (speed)
  • DPX (duplex)
  • POE ( Power over Ethernet )


"LED: SPD" and "ALARM 01". This indicates that the LED's on the chassis are in SPD mode and there is one alarm on the switch. 

NOTE:  A screen displaying 'LED:SPD  ALARM  01' should not be interpreted as 'SPD ALARM' . There is no connection between alarm and the LED mode.

This is just a representation of the different modes of the LED. These same alarms can also be viewed through CLI or JWEB.

CLI:  In the CLI mode, the command "show chassis alarm" can be used to get information on the alarm listed.
