Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

Hi ,

PLease let me know the maximum data transfer rate supported in the SD64B PCI-X slots.

I can see speed column in olrad o/p , but it is in Mhz , How I can get in MB/Sec for each slots .


fyi:-

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

Hi,

I belive the mapping could be something like this ......am I right ?

266mhz â 2133mb/sec
133mhz â 1066mb/sec
66mhz â 533mb/sec


h> ioscan -fnkC fc
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
==================================================================
fc 0 3/0/4/1/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB378-60101 4Gb Single Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 1)

fc 2 3/0/13/1/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB378-60101 4Gb Single Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 1)

We have 3 x 4GB FCs , 2 is using for Data and 1 for backup and all are installed in 133Mhz slots , Is it wise plan to move 2 data FC`s from 133 Mhz to 266 Mhz slot for better SAN I/O throughput ....the OS installed is 11.31 since it uses Persistent DF this change can be done easily ..I guess...

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

Normally the I/O card (HBA) is setting the limit.

Unless the documentation of the card say "install in slot x, y,... only", it doesn't matter where it is.

An example is 10Gbe ethernet cards in some servers.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

The FC adapter support matrix says

"Maximum supported number of AB378B/AB379B adapters is limited by the number of available PCI slots in any listed system."

Hope this helps!

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

Abstract from the "AB378A Fibre Channel Mass Storage Adapter Installation Guide"

This card is capable of running at higher bus speeds, up to 266Mhz. The speed of the server slot determines
the maximum speed. The actual speed is displayed as the PCI Mode.

Current Setup
==========

The card /dev/fcd0 is installed in 133Mhz Speed Slot. As per the above abstract when I move FCD0 to 266 Mhz slot the PCI Mode of the FC card should change to 266Mhz . Please correct me If I am wrong.

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

So try in another slot if it becomes faster.
Please tell.

Hope this helps!

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

It is a different card, isn't it?

AD193

Look up the specs for this card too.

Hope this helps!

Re: Intergrity SX2000 SD64B PCI slot speed

Yes ..You are right

The below abstract is from AD193A Support Matrix.

The AD193A/AD194A PCI-X Combination cards have the following features:
â ¢ PCI-X 133 MHz capable card. It can operate at 32-bit or 64-bit compatible modes and is supported in the following
frequencies: PCI 66, PCI-X 66, and PCI-X 133. Best performance is achieved by putting the card in a â dual-ropeâ PCI-X
133 slot.
