Does RHEL 7 support displaying 50Gbps network link speed?

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • Does RHEL 7 support displaying 50Gbps network link speed?
  • Because we use a Mellanox 50G EN Mezz card, the ethtool command couldn't show the 50000 link speed.
  • The card's vendor says an updated ethtool must be used.

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and earlier
  • ethtool-3.15.el7
  • 50Gbps network interface
