Enabling energy-efficient-ethernet (EEE)


Before you enable energy-efficient-ethernet (EEE), you must insure that both sides of the link are EEE-capable to support the power-saving idle mode.

Energy-efficient-ethernet follows the 802.3az standard, which provides support for a system to operate in low-power idle mode during low-link use.

Enabling energy-efficient-ethernet (EEE)

To enable EEE on the specified port or a range of ports, use the following command:

int <port-list> energy-efficient-ethernet

Enable EEE on ports B5 through B7
