Displaying General Information About Datalinks

When used without any options, the dladm command displays general information about the system's datalinks, including the class, state, and the underlying physical links.

# dladm
LINK        CLASS     MTU     STATE     OVER
net0        phys      1500    unknown   --
net1        phys      1500    up        --
net2        phys      1500    unknown   --
net3        phys      1500    unknown   --
net4        phys      1500    up        --
aggr0       aggr      1500    up        net1,net4

Datalinks can be of different classes, other than physical links, for example, link aggregations, virtual LANs (VLANs), and virtual NICs (VNICs). These other datalinks are also included in the default information that is displayed by the dladm command. For example, in the previous output a link aggregation (aggr0) is configured over the physical datalinks net1 and net4.

For information about link aggregations and VLANs, see Managing Network Datalinks in Oracle Solaris 11.2 . For information about VNICs, see Managing Network Virtualization and Network Resources in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
