fill words settings not shown in new DCX8510 -> it's not needed

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
