Re: how to find the socket details

The rp3440 has 2 built-in NIcs and 3 PCIx slots for additional cards.

 

Do a "lanscan" or "nwmgr" to see the installed ports.

 

There is no rx2640, sorry.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: how to find the socket details

The "netstat -a" command will show you what sockets are currently connected. You can review /etc/initd.conf and /etc/services to determine what sockets are configured at the OS level.  Different installed applications, like databases, may open other sockets.

 

Torsten already gave you the commands to view the installed NIC ports and their state. You may be able to add more ports depending on your free slots.

Re: how to find the socket details

Do you mean network sockets (= a software thing) or processor sockets?

 

The number of network sockets is not determined by hardware model: it is restricted mostly by OS configuration and the amount of available RAM memory.

 

Regarding processors sockets, both rp3440 and rx2660 are 2-socket systems.

rp3440 can only take dual-core PA-RISC processors, so 2 sockets = 4 cores.

If only one processor is installed, it is possible to disable one of the cores in it, if it is necessary to have a single-core system for e.g. licensing reasons. A 3-core configuration is not supported.

 

rx2660 can take either single-core or dual-core Itanium 2 processors, so 2 sockets = either 2 or 4 cores depending on processor model.
