showgwports Command

Displays gateway port status.


showgwports [-v][-h]


This hardware command displays information about the gateway Ethernet ports. The information includes:

This table describes each of the columns of the output

Column Heading
GUID for the BridgeX CA node
Node description test for the BridgeX CA node.
BridgeX device identifier.
Internal BridgeX port number.
A construct of the BridgeX device identifier and the internal BridgeX port number.
The I4 switch chip port connected to the internal BridgeX port.
The GUID for the internal BridgeX port.
The LID for the internal BridgeX port.
The combination of the InfiniBand port logical and physical state. Can be:
  • Sleep

  • Polling

  • Disabled

  • Training

  • Recovery

  • Init

  • Armed

  • Active

The gateway state for the port. Can be:
  • Reset

  • Start

  • Join Mcast

  • Join Fabric

  • Up

  • Error

Maximum available speed for the link.
Number of operational virtual lanes.
A construct of the BridgeX device identifier and the internal BridgeX port number.
State set by the enablegwport and disablegwport commands. Either enabled or disabled.
Physical state of the link. Either Up or Down.
Logical state of the gateway port. Can be:
  • Start

  • Join Mcast

  • Join Fabric

  • Up

  • Error

Link mode of the Ethernet port, as configured by the setgwethport command. Can be either XFI (10 Gbps) or STI (1 Gbps).
Transmit flow control. Can be:
  • None

  • 0-255 PFC

  • Global

Receive flow control. Can be:
  • None

  • 0-255 PFC

  • Global

The showgwports command is available from the /SYS/Gateway_Mgmt and /SYS/Fabric_Mgmt Linux shell targets of the Oracle ILOM CLI interface.


This table describes the options to the showgwports command and their purposes.

Displays verbose output.
Provides help.

This example shows how to display verbose information about the gateway Ethernet ports using the showgwports command.

Note - Your output will differ from that of the example.
