PCI Bus Speed ??

How can you determine the PCI bus speed on a DL 380?

Re: PCI Bus Speed ??

hi sheraz

1) there is NO tool to do that

2) the speed on a pci bus is always the speed of the slowest component

3) so, look at the specs of your cards and at the slot/bus assignments.


dl380 g1: all slots are 33 mhz

dl380 g2: slot 1 (33 mhz) - slot 2 and 3 (66 mhz)

dl380 g3: slot 1 (133 mhz) - slot 2 and 3 (100 mhz)


so look at the bus and the installed cards - this will tell you who is the slowest.

Re: PCI Bus Speed ??


as per the informaiton i have

DL 380:
3 - 64-bit/33-MHz PCI
1 - 32-bit/33-MHz PCI

DL 380 G2
2 - 64-bit/66 MHz Hot-Plug PCI
1 - 64-bit/33 MHz Non Hot-Plug PCI

DL 380 G3
2 - 64-bit/100 MHz Hot-Plug PCI
1 - 64-bit/133 MHz Non Hot-Plug PCI

Respective speeds are correct.
