How to check port speed

You can check your dedicated server port speed by running the following commands in ssh:

1)   /sbin/ethtool eth0 - you'll see something like this 

Supported link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                               100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                               1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
Speed: 1000Mb/s
Duplex: Full


2)  dmesg | grep -i eth - you will see somthing like this

tg3: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex.
tg3: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.
