Napatech Software Suite: adapterinfo


The adapterinfo tool displays information about either a specific adapter or all adapters installed. It is a debug tool that can be used for providing information to Napatech in connection with support cases.

The adapterinfo tool must not be used for traceability purposes; use the productinfo tool instead.


adapterinfo [--adapter <adapter number>] [--brief] [--verbose] [--help]

Command Description
--help Show help text and exit
--verbose Show extended adapter information
--brief Show brief output—only list adapter name
--adapter The adapter to show information for—if not specified, all adapters are listed
