Some random ports led turns off for less than a second https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUl4ifveh74 Right in that time i have 2 timeouts in one or more ports which turned off . why is it doing that?

firmware is up to date . ports are ok and tried with other ports .

show log Note: The changed states are by hand and normal

One more thing . Pinging the switch is abnormal . I am far from switch and normal ping should be less than ~10ms . But as you can see the ping goes high decussate

    Is your question 'why is it doing that?'? – Ryan Foley May 28 '14 at 9:25

    Please edit in the output of show log and show interface – Mike Pennington May 28 '14 at 12:34

    Which ports are we seeing in the video? The port numbers are not visible. Also what are the ports connected to? Also please clear the interface counters and do a show interface output again so that we can see which counters are actually increasing. – Sebastian Wiesinger Jul 1 '14 at 16:37

    Another thing, high ping times probably mean that the CPU is busy, so 'show cpu process sort' is probably helpful. – Sebastian Wiesinger Jul 1 '14 at 16:46

    @Sebastian CPU utilization for five seconds: 24%/13%; one minute: 24%; five minutes: 24% – Omid Kosari Jul 2 '14 at 12:31

Looks like a hardware fault. This is not standard nor accepted behavior. I'd agree with Mr. Lock and test your cables. Beyond that, try re-loading the IOS image on the switch. If all of that fails, you might need to replace the switch.

you have to check the connected cables to your switch:

  1. you need to check it for poor termination from Both ends
  2. you need to check how long is your cables and to which category they belong and if they are passing close to electricity cables

    @pyatka, while a great feature, this is not part of the functionality of the 2950 platform. It was added on the 2960 series. – YLearn May 28 '14 at 18:11
