We have some clients with gigabit TP NIC on a X450-G2 (EXOS V16.1.3.6 patch1-4) - but they only connect with 100MB full duplex. (i investigate the problem via trial and error)
My concern is now - how can i troubleshoot this from switch CLI?

1) How can i see more what happenend regarding autoneg on that specific port -  how can i increase log level to debug this ?
Which log modul have to be modified ?

2) On enterasys Switches (EOS) i could determine via "set port advertise" which speed or duplex modes are advertised to the partner AND which speed / duplex the partner offers.

System(rw)->show port advertise ge.4.36
ge.4.36 capability advertised remote

Official Response
Just to circle back, after a remote session, we were able to confirm that the partner device was advertising 10Mfd, 100Mfd, but not 1000Mfd. A feature request was also opened to expose those commands into the standard CLI instead of needing debug mode.
