How many time have you wanted to know how long a cable run was? Now if you are running cisco 3750 switches you can find out by issuing the following commands you can see how long that cable run really is.

Switch# test cable-diagnostics tdr interface gigabitethernet0/2
TDR test started on interface Gi0/2

A TDR test can take a few seconds to run on an interface. Use "show cable-diagnostics tdr" to read the TDR results.
