NOTE: Wake-on-LAN is supported only on Port 1 from system power state S5.
Improved small packet performance
Integrated PHY and MAC
The HP 560FLR FlexibleLOM delivers 20Gbps 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 560FLR FlexibleLOM supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a
9.5K 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 operations.
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HP 560FLR
FlexibleLOM 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.
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ help meet the performance demands
of consolidated virtual workloads.
Compliant with Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), accommodating multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) to
share single PCIe resources. The HP 560FLR-SFP+ supports SR-IOV, and requires Firmware, Software and
OS support.
MSI and MSI-X Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core
servers by balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores load.
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.
Compatible with HP FlexibleLOM slot for select HP ProLiant Gen8 Rack and Scale-Out servers.
