FWIW, I have never seen an advertised link speed of 500 Mb/s.
Yes, I used ethtool to find out what was happening after the performance
of NFS went down to 10 MBytes/s.
I think what has happened is:
1. I updated these systems (5 off) from F25. This was a clean/new
install but some configuration files were copied from the previous systems.
2. The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-Wired_connection_1 file (or
appropriate named one) was copied from the previous system.
3. These files did not have the new ETHTOOL_OPTS="autoneg on" entry.
4. All was working fine (Gigabit full duplex) for a month or so until
someone/something updated the ifcfg file. If you use the KDE-Plasma
NetworkManager settings tool and it sees no ETHTOOL_OPTS entry, it sets
the GUI settings to manual 100Mbits/s half duplex rather than auto. So
if you don't notice this and save the settings the Ethernet will be set
to this. I will try and enter a bug report for this somewhere.
In my case I don't believe I changed the Ethernet settings using the
KDE-Plasma NetworkManager settings tool, certainly not on all of the
systems. I think something else may have written the
ETHTOOL_OPTS="100mbps" entry somehow with an RPM update within the last
