Hi Experts,

If i take two Gig ports on a 6509 and etherchannel it, is there a way to see the combined speed?
For example, can I go into the port channel and see it say "2000"?
My port channel is for a backup server and I want to see if it is really forwarding 2GB of traffic. The load balance method is:  Source XOR Destination IP address

Hello,

You can type sh int po1 (assuming that your port-channel number is 1). The output of this command will give you the combine bw. The 3rd line of the output gives you the bandwidth of the port-channel. It is preceded by BW. The output also shows statistics for last 5 minutes giving you an idea of utilization. You can clear the counters by typing clear counters to get fresh statistics.
