I use mii-tool to check the current link status (speed and if it is on-line). As I understand, ethtool is a replacement for mii-tool. Is it possible to get similar information from ethtool?
Logged In: YES
This is readily done, e.g.
# ethtool eth0 | grep Link
Link detected: yes
This is an existing capability.
It may be useful is more complete documentation on the properties reported.
