| Sun Blade 6000 Virtualized 40 GbE Network Express Module
Each RJ-45 Ethernet port has two LEDs. The left LED is green and lights to show that a link has been established. It blinks on and off whenever there is network activity on that port.
On the RJ-45 connectors, the right LED is bi-color (amber and green) and indicates the speed of connection by the color it displays:
10 megabits per second, the right LED is off
100 megabits per second, the right LED displays one color
1000 megabits per second, the LED displays the other color
The green or amber color scheme varies from one server blade to another. The following table provides a chart for interpreting the link-speed relationships.
When an Ethernet port is connected to an x86 server blade (server blades with a model number that starts with X) that has been put in WOL mode, the Link LED indicates when the system is in standby mode. It does this by blinking in a repeating, non-random pattern. It flashes ON for 0.1 second and OFF for 2.9 seconds. In standby mode, the system is functioning at a minimal level and is ready to resume full activity.
Note - SPARC-based server blades do not support the WOL mode. When an Ethernet port is connected to a SPARC server blade, the Link LED behaves as described in the table. SPARC-based blades are designated by a T in front of the server module number (for example, T6300).
