    Ethernet operation, a host with a Converged Network Adapter (CNA) can be directly attached to a CEE port on the Dell FCoE hardware. Another host with a classic 10-Gigabit Ethernet NIC can be either directly attached to a CEE port, or attached to a classic Layer 2 Ethernet network which is attached to the Dell FCoE hardware.
  • Page 22: Vlan Tagging

    Layer 2 Ethernet overview The Dell FCoE hardware handles Ethernet frames as follows: • When the destination MAC address is not in the lookup table, the frame is flooded on all ports except the ingress port. • When the destination MAC address is present in the lookup table, the frame is switched only to the correct egress port.
  • Page 23: Loop-free Network Environment

    Ethernet priority tagging is done using the Layer 2 Class of Service (CoS). The 802.1p Ethernet priority is used to tag frames in a VLAN with a Layer 2 CoS to prioritize traffic in the VLAN. The Dell FCoE hardware also accepts frames that have been tagged by an external device.

  • Page 122: Scheduling

    Scheduling Scheduling arbitrates among multiple queues waiting to transmit a frame. The Dell M8428-k supports both Strict Priority (SP) and Deficit Weighted Round Robin (DWRR) scheduling algorithms. Also supported is the flexible selection of the number of traffic classes using SP-to-DWRR. When there are multiple queues for the same traffic class, then scheduling takes these equal priority queues into consideration.
  • Page 123: Traffic Class Scheduling Policy

    The traffic classes are numbered from 0 to 7; higher numbered traffic classes are considered higher priority. The Dell M8428-k provides full flexibility in controlling the number of SP-to-WRR queues. The number of SP queues is specified in N (SP1 through 8), then the highest priority traffic classes are configured for SP service and the remaining eight are WRR serviced.
