SolarFlare XtremeScale X2522 Onload features

Hi.... does the following SolarFlare X2522 network card include Onload features, without any additional software license?

It's installed in Dell PowerEdge R640 server.

Thanks.

Hi.

That information doesn't tell us whether this hardware has the Onload AppFlex installed or not.  (The X2522-Plus does, the base edition does not.)

If it does not - then Onload will still be available, with some limitations:

  • No support for accelerating UDP (it will go via the kernel instead)
  • Some increase in latency due to some features not available (pio)
  • Tradeoff for improved throughput, at the expense of some latency (event batching)

 

To tell which features a card has enabled, we provide the tool "sfkey" from https://support-nic.xilinx.com/ (note that this requires our drivers to also be installed and running)

Thanks for your feedback, abrunnin.

Fyi, the SolarFlare X2522 network card that the customer purchased is the non-Plus card.

So, can this card have the full Onload features by purchasing and applying additional software license?

If can, what is the additional software license to purchase?

Thanks.

- Chin BP.

No - the SFS_OOL AppFlex upgrade is no longer available for sale.  (Announcement here: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/customer_notices/XCN20007.pdf )

The current card can operate Onload, but will not have the lowest-possible latency,
