Finding the speed of the NIC


Hello,

I have a centos 5.2 that is running in the vmware ESXi host.

I like to confirm the NIC speed. I did a ifconfig -a and noticed txqueuelen:1000. Is that the nic speed?

Hi,

If centOS is guest in VMware ESX , it would be ideal to probe the ethernet interface from the host OS rather that from guest OS to know the speed. Coz the ethernet interface available to centos would be a virtual adapter provided by VMware.Am not sure whether tools like ethtool is available in VMware. Folks who are exposed to VMware plz comment..

ethtool will still report correctly if the box is a VM
