Can we retrieve digital diagnostic info from INTEL SFP+/NIC X520 from OS?

I would like to be able to issue a command from LINUX to retrieve transmitted optical power, received optical power.

Is there any Intel software utility to get that info?

Hi Pdecary,

 

 

What you can do is to get the information from the switch side, sample command - show fiber-ports optical-transceiver , you may refer to website below for the command.

thanks,
