The HP 530FLR adapter delivers 20,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gbps
aggregate full duplex), providing the network performance needed to improve response times and
alleviate bottlenecks that impact performance of next generation data centers. 10Gb Ethernet bandwidth
is ideal for high performance computing, database clusters, and more.
The HP 530FLR adapter supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K
byte (KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard
1500-byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and
greater CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup
TCP, IP, UDP checksum offload, Large Send Offload (LSO), TCP, Segmentation Offload (TSO). These
features optimize host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.
Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load
balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores.
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HP 530FLR adapter
to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and
performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to
within the same VLAN domain also improves performance.
TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) shifts the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to
the adapter's processor, freeing server CPU cycles for other operations.
Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) provides a mechanism to bypass the host system hypervisor in
virtual environments providing near metal performance and server efficiency. SR-IOV provides mechanism
to create multiple Virtual Functions (VFs) to share single PCIe resources. The device is capable of SR-IOV,
and requires Server BIOS support, controller firmware, and OS supports
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ help meet the performance demands
of consolidated virtual workloads.
