Overview

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The PA-2000 Series, PA-3000 Series, PA-4000 Series, PA-5000 Series, and PA-7000 Series firewalls accept SFP module(s). This document describes how to view the currently installed SFP modules.

 

Details

From the CLI, run the following command:

> show system state filter sys.sX.pY.phy

where X=slot=1 and Y=port=21 for interface 1/21


Typical SFP module output

> show system state filter sys.s1.p19.phy

sys.s1.p19.phy: { 'link-partner': { }, 'media': SFP-Plus-Fiber, 'sfp': { 'connector':
LC, 'encoding': Reserved, 'identifier': SFP, 'transceiver': 10000B-SR, 'vendor-name':
OEM , 'vendor-part-number': PAN-SFP-PLUS-SR , 'vendor-part-rev': B4 , }, 'type':
Ethernet, }

> show system state filter sys.s1.p21.phy

sys.s1.p21.phy: { 'link-partner': { }, 'media': SFP-Plus-Fiber, 'sfp': { 'connec
tor':
LC, 'encoding': Reserved, 'identifier': SFP, 'transceiver': , 'vendor-name
': FINISAR
CORP.   , 'vendor-part-number': FTLX8574D3BCL   , 'vendor-part-rev':
A   , }, 'type':
Ethernet, }

 

Defective SFP module output

If the output appears similar to the sample below, then the SFP module may be defective:

sys.s1.p21.phy: { 'link-partner': { }, 'media': SFP-Fiber, 'sfp': { 'connector': 
vendor specific, 'encoding': Reserved, 'identifier': SFP, 'transceiver': , 'vendor-
name
': yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, 'vendor-part-number': yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, 'vendor-part-rev':
yyyy, }, 'type': Ethernet, }

 

Note: To verify the above output, unplug the SFP module from the initial SFP port and plug it into another SFP port. Run the same "show system state filter" command as above. If the output is the same, then the module is defective.
