    Hello dennisschneck,

    Welcome to the SUSE forums...

    I see no one has responded to your question. These forums are staffed
    by volunteers each of whom has expertise in different areas. We try our
    best to answer questions but sometimes when questions involve specific
    products, none of us may have a solution.

    I have no experience with EMULEX FC Adapters but I did a Google search
    for "show RX/TX Power EMULEX FC Adapter" and found this.

    The command you are looking for is ‘sfpshow’. If it is not on your
    system it can be found in "Emulex HBA tools" which you may be able to
    find on your vendor's website.

    You can find additional information if you do an Internet search.

    Good luck!
