Network Card

We have sereral DL380 servers with different Gigabit networks cards, NC7782 and NC7170. The servers receive intense multicast traffic, and we set the 'Rx Descriptors' to the max on the cards. On the NC7782 card the max is 512 and on the NC7170 card the max is 1024.
We are having overrun errors on the NC7782 cards.

The paramters on the cards are not included in the product description and I am not sure if these parameters are part of the driver version.

Does anyone know which are the best performing network cards ?

Hi Robert,

The cards you described are also good performers.
