Port profiles overview

The front-panel SFP28 25G ports on F5
r5000/r10000/r12000 Series
systems support port profile functionality. Port profiles enable you to change which mode, or port speed, that port uses. SFP28 ports operate at 25G by default, and SFP+ ports operate at 10G by default. Only these configurations are available:
​2x25G​ - 4x10G
Two 25G (SFP28) ports run at 25G speed, and four 10G (SFP+) ports run at 10G.
All four 25G (SFP28) ports run at 25G speed.
All eight 10G (SFP+) ports run at 10G speed. This is the default configuration.
Changing the mode for a port profile reboots the system, and then removes stale interfaces and any references to stale interfaces from your configuration. You must reconfigure any previously-configured protocols to use your modified port group.
