    with portcfgshow -i xx   shows if the  Fill Word setting is set to 0, 1 or 3

    eg

     

    on old DCX

    Index:             77
    ---------------- +---
    Speed              AN
    Fill Word          0

     

    On the new DCX8510 this parameter is unknown, it's not needed anymore?

    Correct, setting the fillword is specific to the 8Gb platform/ASIC

    manual fillword setting is only applicable to 8Gb ASIC ports running at 8Gb speed
