Cable test on Huawei Quidway S2326

I will give an example of commands for testing a cable on Huawei Quidway S2300 switches.

Let’s connect to the switch and go to the system environment from the user environment:


Select the required interface (port):

interface Ethernet0/0/21

Run the cable test command:


For example, I displayed that while testing the cable, the service on the port would be suspended and then the test result was displayed:

Warning: The command will stop service for a while, continue [Y/N]?Y
Pair A length: 42meter(s)
Pair B length: 42meter(s)
Pair A state: Ok
Pair B state: Ok
