HADES Network Tests

Network related commands

  • Get network card info: hwinfo --netcard
  • List loaded modules: lsmod
  • List all PCI buses and devices: lspci
  • Get driver info: modinfo ixgbe
  • Enable flow control on the server: ethtool -A eth3 rx on tx on autoconf on
  • Disable flow control on the server: ethtool -A eth3 rx off tx off autoconf off
  • Grep the log for driver related messages: dmesg | grep ixgbe
  • Statistics at driver level: netstat -s eth3 | grep "packet receive errors"
  • Statistics at driver level: netstat -s eth3 | grep "packet reassembles failed"
  • Statistics at hardware level: ethtool -S eth3 | grep "rx_missed_errors"
    • Indicates the number of frames that were dropped due to the adapter's fifo getting full and over flowing. It seems there are interrupt delivery problems or interrupts are getting lost.
  • Statistics at hardware level: ethtool -S eth3 | grep "rx_no_buffer_count"
    • Indicates that the driver didn't return buffers to the hardware soon enough, but the hardware was able to store the packet (at the time of reception) in the fifo to try again. It seems there are interrupt delivery problems or interrupts are getting lost.
  • Slot settings for the NIC: lspci -v -v -s 07:00.1
