Cisco CDP Neighbor command

I am looking at the sh cdp neighbor command on a 6509 switch. I am doing this remotely because the switch is 800 miles from where I am. I noticed that gig3/2 shows 3 Catalyst 2960. Does it mean that I have a hub connected to gig3/2? Thx

No not necessarily. This means that there are 3 Catalyst 2960's that are reachable through this port. These switches are likely daisy chained together, which is why they all show up under 1 port.

I daisy chain 3 2960 and connected to a one port on my 3560 and I only see 1 2960.

is CDP enabled on all of the switches?

Craig BeckCommented:
CDP will only show 'directly' connected hosts via a switchport, so it won't show switches hanging off switches.  If there is more than one device reachable via the switchport it is likely to be because a hub is connected to that switchport.
