net-dvs Command

In order to view more information about the distributed switch configuration, use the net-dvs command. This is only available in the local shell. Notice that it specifies information like the UUID of the distributed switch and the name. We can also see information regarding Private VLANs if we have those set up.

If we keep scrolling down, we can see the MTU and CDP information for the distributed switch. Notice that we can set up LLDP for a distributed switch. Next we see information regarding the port groups and how they are configured, we see VLAN and security policy information here. At the bottom we see some stuff on a network resource pool if we have network i/o control enabled and are using this feature.

The last section we see on the net-dvs output we see is some information that is very useful during the troubleshooting process. We can see whether or not packets are being dropped and we can see from the amount of traffic going in and out and decide on whether we need to traffic shape.
