Network port(s) running in half duplex for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Indeni will alert one or more network ports is running in half duplex.

Remediation Steps

Many times ports are in half duplex due to an autonegotation error or a misconfiguration.Review sk83760: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solutionid=sk83760

How does this work?

The duplex of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".

Why is this important?

If the interface has half-duplex setting, this will reduce throughput, and should be investigated.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually check interface configuration, or use SNMP.
