The ports that our Cisco 3560 switches connect to the servers are set to speed 1000/ duplex full. But out network management software (Cisco Works,Solar Winds and SNMPC) all show the points at being 10mbps. The server guys insist their nic cards are set to 1gps.
Below is an output  from the switches:

Is both sides set to auto-negotiate (and not manual settings)?

The network management software is wrong.  It is running at 1 gig.

The ports are running 1gb, full duplex. It appears that someone manually set the bandwidth (incorrectly) to 10mb.

  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 10000 Kbit, DLY 1000 usec,

Either remove the incorrect bandwidth setting:

int g3/0/20
 no bandwidth 10000

Or manually set it correctly:

int g3/0/20
 bandwidth 1000000

Keep in mind the bandwidth statement is not used for setting the actual bandwidth.  It is used for routing protocols to determine the metrics.  It is also used sometimes by various management apps so they can figure out the speed.

Their is no bandwidth statement in the config. See below.

interface GigabitEthernet3/0/20
 switchport access vlan 80
 switchport mode access
 no ip address
 duplex full
 speed 1000
 no mdix auto
 spanning-tree portfast

Can 3 network management softwares be wrong?
The ports are set manually not auto-negotiate.

The management software is not at fault. It is displaying the reported bandwidth. For whatever reason the bandwidth is not automatically reflecting the actual speed of the interface which it usually does on ethernet interfaces.

So you will need to manually set the bandwidth.

int g3/0/20
 bandwidth 1000000

I will try it on Monday. It is on a few interfaces do you think it could be a fault with the switch

I would think the switch is working fine, it could be an IOS bug with the reporting of the speed.  But I would think the switch is fine.  If all else fails upgrade the IOS on it and see if that changes things for you.
