Configuring the slot low-power option

Do one of the following:

  • Use the command savepower port-low-pwr <slot-list> to put the specified slots into low-power mode.

  • Use the command savepower port-low-pwr all to put the all the slots into low-power mode.

Slots will go into lower-power mode only if they are not linked. The slots that have the low-power option configured periodically monitor connections to determine if the link has become active. If a LAN cable is connected to one of the slots, that slot will come out of the low-power mode state after approximately two seconds (the monitoring period) and enter into normal power mode. The remaining slots continue to be in low-power mode.

The following example shows how to put slot "c" into low-power mode.
