$ ip -d -n ns100 link ls vxlan100
15: vxlan100: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT
group default qlen 1000
    link/ether d6:54:ea:b4:46:a5 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff link-netnsid 0
promiscuity 0 minmtu 68 maxmtu 65535
    vxlan externaladdrgenmode eui64 numtxqueues 1 numrxqueues 1 gso_max_size
65536 gso_max_segs 65535
