Interface STP status

Hi guys,

 

My doubt is simple, how can I see the STP status of interfaces on Meraki switches? I can see if STP is enabled or disabled on the interface, but I can't see if the interface is in forwarding or blocking state. Is there anyway?

 

Regards,

Julián

Kind of a big deal

Re: Interface STP status

Hi fjulianom,

You can tell if it's forwarding or blocking by the switch port icon shown on the visual depiction of the switch. If it's forwarding it will show nothing. If it's blocking it'll have a circle with a line through it.  This page shows all the symbols you may see:

Hope that helps!

Hi jdsilva,

 

Thanks for the explanation and the link. I have also realized the forwarding/blocking is only shown when the port is up, and if the port is down you can only see if STP is enabled/disabled (which is obvius and I didn't realized before when I open this post). Now I have selected an interface which is up and I can see it is in forwarding state:

 This is also stated in the link you provided:

Thanks again,

Hi,

 

It is weird, I can see some interfaces with an arrow and some without, and all of them are in forwarding state:

Re: Interface STP status

The arrow indicates that the interface is being used for the uplink to Dashboard. It is not an indicator of STP status.

Hi,

 

Yeah, according to my switch ports that's correct.
