Displayed values for Energy-efficient-ethernet (EEE)

The displayed values for the energy efficient Energy-efficient-ethernet (EEE) status are explained in the following table.



EEE Config

The EEE configuration status, read from the configuration database.

  • Enabled

EEE mode is enabled.

  • Disabled

EEE mode is disabled.

Current Status

Current EEE operational status.

  • Active

The port is advertised and auto-negotiated EEE with link partner (an EEE-capable partner.) EEE mode is enabled.

  • Inactive

Set to one of the following conditions:
  • EEE configuration is disabled on the local port.

  • Local port advertises EEE capabilities with "EEE disabled" link partner or non-EEE link partner.

  • Auto-negotiation is mandatory for EEE to work. EEE configuration will not be applied if the port is in forced/manual (speed-duplex) mode. The current status will be ‘inactive" for forced/manual mode port configuration.

  • EEE is not supported for 10Base-T. The current status will be ‘inactive' if the link is operating in 10Base-T mode.

  • Unsupported

The local physical interface does not have EEE capability.


Current value of transmit wake-up time (in microseconds.)


The interface modules do not support adjustment of both transmit and receive wake-up times. Therefore, txWake is constant.
