VC Flow Control Questions

I read on another forum that flow control is "ON" by default for Flex10\FlexFabric downlink ports only and not uplink ports. Is this true? Is there a CLI command I can use to verify flow control settings? I know how to change the flow control setting but not see the current setting in use.

 

Oh, and a little background.. our Cisco switches have been creating sep port groups for our uplink ports due to mis-matched flow control settings. So I am trying to figure out what is going on. :)

This was posted a couple of weeks ago - it talks about the default settings; but doesn't answer how to show what it is currently set at:

Re: VC Flow Control Questions

Have you tried show statistics? Or DCBX Priority Flow Control State? It looks like one of those should show you that status.

Yeah.. I get:

 

DCBX Priority Flow Control State            The feature is operationally disabled

 

Does that mean someone manually disabled it?

I think I gave some bad advice there; we should probably disregard DCBX. I just ran a show and this is what I saw:
