802.3ah and Repeaters

Hi all,

I had a newbie question about 802.3ah. Would 802.3ah be supported for end host NICs? Or is it relevant only to links between switches/transport Ethernet devices?

I ask if in the below example, the use of 802.3ah for monitoring the status of the link between the two hosts is valid?

_______ _________ ________ | | | | | | | Host ||Repeater|| Host | |______| |________| |_______|

Thanks in advance, Samian
