Fixed In Version: NetworkManager-1.32.0-0.4.el8
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Support for pause parameter of `ethtool` in NetworkManager Non auto-pause parameters need to be set explicitly on a specific network interface in certain cases. Previously, NetworkManager could not pause the control flow parameters of `ethtool` in `nmstate`. To disable the auto negotiation of the pause parameter and enable RX/TX pause support explicitly, use the following command: ---- # nmcli connection modify enp1s0 ethtool.pause-autoneg no ethtool.pause-rx true ethtool.pause-tx true ----

Hi Marc,

Do you know what should I do if I would like to add document for this bug like https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/configuring_and_managing_networking/assembly_configuring-ethtool-coalesce-settings_configuring-and-managing-networking ?

Thank you and sorry for miss the doc planning.
