speed-duplex
The following are examples of the values for enabled speed-duplex combinations that you can specify
  • 10g-f (10 gigabit full-duplex)

  • 1g-f (1 gigabit full-duplex)

  • 1g-h (1 gigabit half-duplex)

  • 100m-f (100megabit full-duplex)

  • 100m-h (100megabit half-duplex)

  • 10m-f (10 megabit full-duplex)

  • 10m-h (10 megabit half-duplex)

Current values are advertised speed-duplex combinations, for example, the equivalent of the adv_speed-duplex_cap values.

New properties are supported by the dladm command that enable you to check speed negotiation of 40G-capable devices. You cannot set these properties with the dladm set-linkprop command. However, you can still display property information as usual.

For example, to check the 40G full-duplex setting for ixgbe0, type:

$ dladm show-linkprop -p adv-40gfdx-cap ixgbe0

To check whether an interface has 40G capability, display the speed-duplex property setting as follows:

$ dladm show-linkprop -p speed-duplex net8
LINK  ROPERTY PERM VALUE  EFFECTIVE  DEFAULT POSSIBLE
net8  speed-duplex   rw   40g-f   40g-f       --

See the dladm(8) man page.
