Support for HP Sea of Sensors 3D which is a collection of 32 sensors that automatically track thermal
activity - heat - across the server. When temperatures get too high, sensors can kick on fans and make
other adjustments to reduce energy usage. What makes it better is the upgrade from all six fans kicking on
at one time to a new system where only one kicks on - the one in proximity of the area that started heating
up - thus reducing the amount of energy used for cooling.
In addition to Gigabit Ethernet, the 331FLR adapter supports both 10Mbps and 100Mbps providing
compatibility with Ethernet and Fast Ethernet twisted pair networks.
The HP 331FLR is compatible only with HP FlexibleLOM slot available on select HP ProLiant Gen8 Rack

more network adapters. The team of adapters works together as a single virtual adapter. The HP 331FLR
FlexibleLOM provides Support for several different types of teaming.
The teaming options offer IT professionals an easy, efficient, and cost-effective way to provide network
fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth. For more information, refer to the ProLiant Network

Like all HP server adapters, the HP 331FLR ships with drivers and agents that can be managed from HP
Systems Insight Manager, as well as using any other management application that supports SNMP. HP
Systems Insight Manager can recognize the 331FLR individually or in teams, and can collect and report
SNMP statistics on the adapter events.
