When I run
lshw -C netowrk I get
*-network:1 description: Ethernet interface product: Ethernet Connection (6) I219-V vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 1f.6 bus info: [email protected]:00:1f.6 logical name: eno1 version: 30 serial: 1c:69:7a:0d:82:69 --> size: 100Mbit/s --> capacity: 1Gbit/s width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd 1000bt-fd autonegotiation configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=e1000e driverversion=3.2.6-k duplex=full firmware=0.4-4 ip=192.168.30.239 latency=0 link=yes multicast=yes port=twisted pair speed=100Mbit/s resources: irq:133 memory:c0b00000-c0b1ffff
What’s the difference between
capacity in this case?
Those field names were intended for other types of hardware, and mapping them to network interfaces doesn’t make that much sense. That said, in this context, "capacity" is the maximum bandwidth of the NIC, while "size" is the current bandwidth.
