I know I can run the sh inv to view the SFPs model and Serial Numbers attached on a Cisco Switch.

Is there a way to verify the brand name of each SFP?

I have Cisco 9300 and 9606 switches.

  • sh idprom interface Does show the vendor name. Is there a way to run this command for all interfaces instead of one by one?
