Proliant embedded 4-port NIC: redundancy best practice

Hello all,

I'm in search of expert advice regarding the usage of the port in the DL series embedded 4-Port NIC when bonding is used.
I would like to know if the 4 port are serviced by on single chip, 2 chips or 4 chips.

I case the ports are services by 2 chips then the question would be how these are groupped.

I'm trying to maximize the redundancy configuration by making sure I use separate chips for each of the bonding slaves.

Is this the Gen9/Gen10 DL360/DL380? If so, the embedded NIC is the 331i which is a single Broadcom NIC, basically an embedded version of the 331FLR and 331T.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your reply.

I see that the embedded NIC is powered by a single Broadcom chip. Therefore, it makes no difference which NIC ports one uses; if the chip breaks all are gone.
