CentOS 5.8 | VMWare ESX 5.1
When I run
ethtool eth0 I see the following:
[root@foo ~]# ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Current message level: 0x00000007 (7) Link detected: yes
Is there any way to get the rest of the details? Particularly speed and duplex? I'm used to ethtool output being more verbose. For example:
# ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Full Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Full Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Speed: 100Mb/s Duplex: Full Port: Twisted Pair PHYAD: 1 Transceiver: internal Auto-negotiation: on Supports Wake-on: d Wake-on: d Link detected: yes
I'm wondering if this is related to running on a VMWare platform? Current adapter type in ESX is "Flexible" and VMWare tools is not installed on the server.
