The Ports tab on the Host Detail page presents information about the physical ports on a host.
Currently none of the port attributes is configurable; they are all read directly from the hardware. Port information is presented in several columns, as follows:
The name of the physical port, as identified by the host’s Linux kernel.
- MAC Address
The port’s unique MAC address.
- PCI Address
The port’s unique address on the PCI bus. Together with the MAC address, this field can be used to uniquely identify a port on the host’s hardware platform.
The processor node that the port’s I/O controller is connected to.
- Auto Negotiation
The status of the Ethernet auto-negotiation flag. Currently, auto-negotiation is always enabled.
- Boot Interface
The boot flag, whether or not PXE booting is enabled.
- Device Type
Hardware information about the port type, manufacturer, and model.
