Notes

  • Port cannot be split when storm-control is configured on port

  • Force command don't remove storm-control configuration. Error output:

    % Storm control configuration must be removed from interface Eth1/2

  • After a split port is created or deleted, the forwarding mode for each split port is set according to the global configuration

  • The affected interfaces should be disabled prior to the operation

  • In order to unsplit the interface, use the “no” command.

  • The following speeds are supported on the different Ethernet interface types and depend on the system types and plugged module:

    • non-split: 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, 56GbE, 100GbE, 200GbE, 400GbE

    • qsfp-split-2: 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 50GbE

  • qsfp-dd-split-8: 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 50GbE

  • When using split-to-4 and split-to-8, only odd ports can be split. In case split is used, the following even port will be unmapped (e.g., splitting port 1/17 to 4 or to 8 will unmap port 1/18). (s(.split 1/17 to 8 will unmap 1/18)(split 1/17 to 8 will unmap 1/18)plit 1(split 1/17 to 8 will unmap 1/18)(split 1/17 to 8 will unmap 1/18)/17 to 8 will unmap 1/18)

Notes

Switches that perform upgrade to version 3.9.2000, existing interfaces will stay with MTU 1500 (or any other value that was configured). Newly created interfaces (created by split/unsplit operation) will be created with MTU 9216 (the new default). The configured and displayed MTU represents the L3 MTU (being used in IP interfaces). The L2 MTU (being used in physical interfaces) is automatically configured as L3 MTU + 22 Bytes.

Notes

  • The default speed of an interface depends on its speed capabilities.

  • Not all interfaces support all speed options

  • It is not possible to set “auto” speed along with specific speeds

  • A port with more than one speed advertised or a port configured to “auto” speed cannot be added to LAG

  • To change the speed of a LAG interface:

  1. Remove Ethernet ports from LAG.

  2. Shutdown ports.

  3. Reconfigure port speed.

  4. Re-enable ports.

  5. Re-add ports to LAG interface.

Related Commands

Notes

  • The counter “phy received bits” provides information on the total amount of traffic received and can be used to estimate the ratio of error traffic

  • The counter “phy symbol errors” provides information on the error traffic that was not corrected because the FEC algorithm could not do it or because FEC was not active on this interface

  • The counter “phy corrected bits” provides the number of corrected bits by the active FEC mode (RS/FC)

  • The counter "Time since last clear" provides the time passed since the last counters clear event in msec

  • The counter "Edpl/bip errors lane*" provides the NO FEC corrected counter value on appropriate lane

  • The counter "FC corrected blocks lane*" provides the FC FEC corrected counter value on appropriate lane

  • The counter "RS corrected symbols lane*" provides the RS FEC corrected counter value on appropriate lane

  • The counter "raw_ber_magnitude" provides the BER magnitude value for total number of errors. Used for BER calculation - Raw_BER = raw_ber_coef * 10^(-raw_ber_magnitude)

  • The counter "raw_ber_coef" provides the BER coefficient value for total number of errors

  • The counter "effective_ber_magnitude" provides the BER magnitude value for effective number of errors. Used for BER calculation - Effective_BER = effective_ber_coef * 10^(-effective_ber_magnitude)

  • The counter "effective_ber_coef" provides the BER coefficient value for effective number of errors
