Currently we are using this IOS in this switch:
WS C3560-48PS-E
Software (C3560-IPSERVICES-M), Version 12.2(35)SE5, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1).

Does  IOS 12.4 or even 15.0 support this hardware? If I go to cisco>CiscoCatalyst 3560-48PS Switch>IOS software I  se that the 12.2.53 is the latest software. I´m looking fo rthe increase monitoring capability the  the 12.4 has  ( IP SLA in particular).  Would also like to know if IOS 15.0 supoprts the 3560 and if it is better upgrade path.

Looks like the latest version for the 3560 is12.2(53).

woolnoir: the Nexus switches don't run IOS. They run NX-OS.

The Nexus platform is a switch, not a router.

I agree... but we didn't specifically mention switches, apart from the OP who mentioned the 3650. I only said the 7X series as a possible set the new IOS would run on.

I'm confused .. ?

looks like 12.4 doesn´t support the 3560,  which suxs, BUT the available 12.2(53) does have IP SLA features. Ill let this question sit for now,if no new, valid solution is posted, ill go with the minor upgrade as suggested.

Hi.
12.4 IOS is only for ROUTERS.
L2 & L3 Switches uses different features IOS, and the most recent version is 12.2
in your case, C3560, the latest version of ios is 12.2.55(SE). the maximum features are included in the ip services version.

you need c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.122-55.SE
