How can we set the max bandwidth for individual FLexNic (LOM)?

Ivan's customer would like advice on how to set the Min-Max values on the VC FlexNICs.

 

*************

 

The customer would like to set the max bandwidth for individual FLexNic(LOM) under VC firmware v4.1 as below:

 

FlexNIC (LOM)

Mini

Max

Remark

a

8Gb

8Gb

Can’t allow to get   more than 8Gb bandwidth

b

1Gb

1Gb

 

Can’t allow to get   more than 1Gb bandwidth

c

1Gb

1Gb

d

Unused

Unused

 

 

However, we can’t find this option in the GUI.  Is it supported or not?

                There are at least three places to set the MAX speed.

1 Globally on the Main screen under Network, Advanced.

2 Each VLAN / Network setting under Advanced.

3 Profiles under Custom speed

 

If you set it globally or under the VLANs then it will show MAX in the profile after the it has been assigned to a server.

If you set it in the profile it assume 10Gb to be the MAX as it has not yet been set.

In VC 4.01 this would be required to behave like VC 3.7x.

So the customer has to select the network and select the preferred = max and then manage on a per profile basis via custom.

 

So for example if you set Network 1,  Network 2, Network 3 Preferred Speed = 10Gb and Max Speed=10Gb, then when you go to the profile you can do this when using Custom:

 

In VC 4.01 >

 

Profile 1

(Assign LF0 to Network 1)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF0="E;1;3cd92bf69a68;1000;8000;8000;;enabled""

8Gb

(Assign LF1 to Network 2)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF1="E;1;3cd92bf69a78;1001;1000;1000;;enabled""

1Gb

(Assign LF2 to Network 3)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF1="E;1;3cd92bf69a88;1002;1000;1000;;enabled""

1Gb

 

In VC 3.75 they could do this WITHOUT setting the Preferred speed and Max Speed

 

Profile 1

(Assign LF0 to Network 1)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF0="E;1;3cd92bf69a68;1000;8000;8000;;enabled""

8Gb

(Assign LF1 to Network 2)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF1="E;1;3cd92bf69a78;1001;1000;1000;;enabled""

1Gb

(Assign LF2 to Network 3)

"set netport1 OEMHP_LF1="E;1;3cd92bf69a88;1002;1000;1000;;enabled""

1Gb
