PHY State shows state of SAS PHY layer.
Your output shows that port 0c has 4 links and each link is up in 3Gbps.
Thanks YIshikawa for your quick response, can you help me out to understand clearly, how these links are connected or used in NetApp environment.
This port is cabled with some port of disk shelf module. Single cable has 4 PHY links, so you can see only one cable on port 0c but this cable has 4 links(lanes) inside.
