How to check Physical chassis, model number, physical interface 10G etc ...???

Jump to solution

Hi all,

 

It's not first time but I'm struggling.

Can anyone share a list of general commands to see:

Platform, slot, VSX mode, version etc either for clish or in expert mode.

 

Actually, I need to see how many 10G interfaces I have left and what Physical model of VSX firewall we are running.

 

Regards,

B

Hi @BeaconBits 

use the "ethtool" to check the interface driver and interface speed/duplex.

With the ethtool you can display the version and type of the driver. For example for the interface eth0.

# ethtool -i eth0

driver: igb
version: 2.1.0-k2
firmware-version: 3.2-9
bus-info: 0000:02:00.0

With "lspci" you can display the pci slot and more:

# lspci -v

More informations to linux network cards, CPU, memory, SecureXL driver, hd, pci slots and many more can you found in linux "proc" directory:

# more /proc/...

You found more informations to supported network cards (10GBit/s and 1GBit/s) with and without multi queueing in my article or in HCL. Network interfaces must use the driver that supports Multi-Queue. Only network cards that use the igb (1Gb), ixgbe (10Gb), i40e (40Gb), or mlx5_core (40Gb) drivers support the Multi-Queue:
