How do I find out the type of transceiver used in the port?

Environment

  • Cumulus Linux, versions 2.1 and later

Resolution

Use the ethtool command with the -module information argument on the interface in question.

The example below queries interface swp3:

cumulus@switch$ sudo ethtool -m swp3
        Identifier                                : 0x03 (SFP)

This support portal has moved

Cumulus Networks is now part of the NVIDIA Networking Business Unit! The NVIDIA Cumulus Global Support Services (GSS) team has merged its operations with the NVIDIA Mellanox support services team.

You can access NVIDIA Cumulus support content from the Mellanox support portal.

You open and update new cases on the Mellanox support portal. Any previous cases that have been closed have been migrated to the Mellanox support portal.

Cases that are still open on the Cumulus portal will continue to be managed on the Cumulus portal. Once these cases close, they will be moved to the Mellanox support portal.
