Utility for controlling network drivers and hardware


ethtool is the standard Linux utility for controlling network drivers and hardware, particularly for wired Ethernet devices. It can be used to:

* Get identification and diagnostic information
* Get extended device statistics
* Control speed, duplex, autonegotiation and flow control for Ethernet devices
* Control checksum offload and other hardware offload features
* Control DMA ring sizes and interrupt moderation
* Control receive queue selection for multiqueue devices
* Upgrade firmware in flash memory

Most features are dependent on support in the specific driver. See the manual page for full information.
