DL580 G3 optimum pci config

I have a DL580 G3 that I need to install 2 NC340T and 2 FCA2214 cards in. I'm wondering which pci slots to install the cards to get the optimum performance. Thanks Bob

Re: DL580 G3 optimum pci config

Hi,

Have a look at this for the detailed PCI layout:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12195_div/12195_div.HTML#Standard%20Features

The idea is to keep each card on a separate bus , so I would probably use slots 3, 4 & 5.

That's the simple answer. If you have (or can purchase) PCI-X Mezzanine Option then slots 1 & 2 look like an ideal choice for HBAs beacuse they are hot-pluggable.

Thanks. Looks like I'll put the two FC cards and one of the NC340T cards in 3,4 and 5 and put the remaining NC340T in slot 6. That way they each have their own bus and the FC cards are on the faster bus.

Thanks,

Bob
