How to identify transceiver / SFP+ adapter?

Hi,

I'm looking for a command to identify if a SFP+ adapter has been inserted and if, which one.
E.g. 5xxx / 15xxx series appliance.

The "show asset all" does not really help
Number of line cards: 1
Line card 1 type: 2 ports 10GbE SFP+ Rev 2.0

Something like this (guess the vendor) would be great
"show interface ethernet 1/1 transceiver"

dmesg command does not really help either.

any ideas?

Regards,

Maybe sk68780 How to check which driver should be loaded for installed NIC and if that driver will support the installed NIC will help ?

hi,

not really. I see a lot of 'should' in the SK.

Somehow, it looks nearyl impossible to identify if

- a CheckPoint SFP+ adapter has been inserted or a noname Transceiver

- if a LR or SR has been inserted

- if anything is inserted.

Thanks

Cheers,

The system will not allow installation of a non-Check Point transceiver.

That said, I don't believe the system is able to show further information.

Hi all,

 

anyhow you can check status of SFP+ module inserted into the machine with ethtool:

 

[Expert@gw-596d14:0]# ethtool -m eth2
Identifier : 0x03 (SFP)
Extended identifier : 0x04 (GBIC/SFP defined by 2-wire interface ID)
Connector : 0x07 (LC)
Transceiver codes : 0x10 0x00 0x00 0x01 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00
Transceiver type : 10G Ethernet: 10G Base-SR
Transceiver type : Ethernet: 1000BASE-SX

 

and much more.

Also asi Daemon wrote, only CP SPF modulea are supported..

Same here. Looks like it just available in R80.30.
