/sys/class/net/ Is this is the correct place for eth info
Using a python script, I am gathering various info about all the ethernet adapters installed. For this I am parsing all the directories(each directory represent a ethernet adapter) inside
Is this is the correct place and de-facto standard for listing ethernet adapters?
I am concerned about modern distros as well as a bit older ones for the presence of this directory.
If you go back far enough, /sys didn't exist. In this box /sys/class/net has symlinks to lo & eth0, and eth0 is /sys/class/devices/pci/numbers/eth0.
This stuff is device and driver relevant; In terms of configuration, the job is imposing.
