Bonding NICS Rhel5


I want to find out if anyone know if a way to determine my bond0 interface speed when ethtool can't retrieve it.

I bonded eth0 and eht1 on Rhel5 AS as bond0. when I bring up the interface it show the info etc. look at the ifconfig info below.

bond0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:FE:71:C6:AE

-------------------------------

but when I run ethtool on bond0 I get the following messages. FYI bond0 should show up as 2Gbps

[root@smrtora ~]# ethtool bond0
Settings for bond0:
No data available

Any info would be greatly appreciated

ethool and mii-tool don't really do the trick because "bond0" is a "virtual" device rather than a "physical" device.

Have a look at this earlier thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ighlight=bond0

In there was a link to a wiki that talks more about bonding.
