Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System


rate-interval (Configuration Mode)

Configure the traffic sampling interval for all physical and logical port-channel interfaces globally. The support to configure rate-interval globally enables you to modify the default interval rate for all physical and logical interfaces at one time.

rate-interval seconds

Use the no rate-interval command to remove the sampling interval configuration.

Enter the number of seconds for which to collect traffic data. The range is from 5 to 299 seconds.
NOTE: Because polling occurs every 15 seconds, the number of seconds designated here round to the multiple of 15 seconds lower than the entered value. For example, if 44 seconds is designated, it rounds to 30; 45 to 59 seconds rounds to 45. If you configure this value to be less than 5, then the entire buffer is cleared; the show int stats command shows the rate information to be 0 as the polling interval is less than 5.

Introduced on all Dell EMC Networking OS platforms.
Usage Information

The output of the show interfaces command displays the configured rate interval, along with the collected traffic data.

When rate-interval is not configured in the global configuration mode or interface mode, the default value of 299 seconds is applied.

When rate-interval is configured only in the global configuration mode and not in the interface mode, the global rate-interval value is applied at the interface level also.

When rate-interval is configured at the interface level and not in the global configuration mode, the interface level rate-interval value is applied for an interface.

When rate interval is configured in both global configuration mode as well as interface mode, then the rate-interval value configured at interface level is applied as it takes precedence over the global value.
