Small feature saves troubleshooting time

How can "output peak rate" help?

From a happy partner
The new AW+-OS 5.4.8-0.2 has already saved me personally, a bunch of time in troubleshooting.

Last night I was called to troubleshoot a fresh deployment of AT 10G switches.  
Thanks to the new bandwidth throughput information available on a "show interface" command, I was able to prove the issue was NOT related to the Allied Telesis AT-XS900MX 10G switches we had installed earlier in the week.
The customer had plugged in some 10G-capable servers into the AT-x930 & AT-XS916MXT switches and said that they were only getting about 1Gbps throughput instead of 10Gbps.  
They wanted to check that the switches were configured correctly.
Using the show interface command, with the awesome extra info such as Output Peak Rate, we could see the switches were pushing through nearly 10Gbps of traffic no problem at all.  Beautiful.
Just wanted to say thank you for getting this information added as requested a few months back.'
