Hi,

Using SDA to check LAN device counters is pretty heavy going. This is much
easier:

$ mcr lancp show device/counters

Sure it doesn't give you as much information -- but it's usually enough to
identify a link-level problem.

See also

$ mcr lancp show device/characteristics

for speed/duplex etc.
