I have noticed on S4 chassis equipped with I/O fabrics modules that transceiver leds are blinking with 2 different colours: most of them are green, but some are amber (see enclosed images - I hope it is visible).

Anyone knows what that colours mean ?

Generally, all ethernet port status dual LED status as follow.
left LED blinking means theres activity.
left led: Amber means 100Mbps. left led: Green means its 1 Gbps or more.
Right led: Green means port status is active.

If right led green is also blinking, means its very odd.

Thank you Mel78,

That it interesting, casue all my links are 10Gb and their speed is actually 10Gb, when checking port status on S4.
Is that possible at all to have 100Mb speed on SFP+ fiber transceivers ?

Apologies, the Entrasys S-series SFP+ is different. Refer above.

OK, that makes sense now, as S4 is receiving video streaming traffic from cameras connected to edge switches.

Thanks again, Mel78 !
