We had a SFP replaced because sfpshow reported Current = 0 mA and TX = -inf.
Unfortunately with the new SFP we get similar values:
> sfpshow 1/13 -f

I'm guessing this might be an electrical failure not of the SFP but of the port into which it plugs. Are there any testing devices or procedures that might be performed on the port? I need to confirm if it is dead forever or if there's a chance of bringing it back to use.
Any hints appreciated.
try do disable the port persistent and then enable back.
what happened ?
Persistent disable/enable changes nothing really. Same values in sfpshow output.
Oddly enough, after persistent enabling week later it seems fixed - Current value is about 7 mA.
Fine that work.
