  • Page 9: Pci Hot Plug

    HP server adapters support PCI Hot Plug technology. To take advantage of this solution, you must use the adapter in an HP or third-party system that supports PCI Hot Plug. To implement PCI Hot Plug, use the configuration instructions that come with your system. If you use an HP system that supports PCI Hot Plug, refer to the documentation for configuring and installing PCI Hot Plug devices in the HP SmartStart application, which ships with HP systems.

If you do not use this parameter, the driver automatically detects the network speed. If unable to detect the network speed, the driver defaults to 10 Mbps. If you use this parameter, the driver operates at the specified speed instead of auto-detecting network speed.

    RxPause TxPause RxPause/TxPause NOTE: 1000 Mbps (1 Gbps) full-duplex fixed speed is only valid for fiber connections. For copper, twisted-pair connections, 1 Gbps can only be set through auto-negotiation with a 1 Gbps partner. NOTE: Auto-negotiation of Flow Control is only valid when the Line Speed is set to AutoNegotiate.

    In Solaris 7.0 (Intel platform), the operating system only allocates 36 pages of 4K physically contiguous memory. The driver needs approximately 130K of physically contiguous memory per adapter. In order to use more than one adapter, the operating system must allocate more memory. This can be done by setting the operating system variable, "lomempages"...

    The following describes the adapter Status Counters and Software Counters and their acceptable ranges. N100 custom counters Link Status This counter contains the link status, as read from the PHY, or general status register of the ASIC. It is updated once a second. A value of 0 is link up. 1 is link down. Duplex This counter holds the current duplex as read directly from the PHY, or general status register of the ASIC.

  • Page 36

    Tx Lost Carrier Sense This counter contains the number of frames that were transmitted by the device despite the fact that it detected the de-assertion of Carrier Sense during the transmission. Tx Frames Deferred This counter contains the number of frames that were deferred before transmission due to activity on the link.

    that software uses, or increasing the performance of the host machine's processing power (which would allow for faster processing of the resources). Rx DMA Overrun Errors This counter contains the number of frames known to be lost because the device's internal receive FIFO overflowed.

    amount of under-runs. The higher this number, the more time the adapter is waiting before starting to transmit data onto the wire. Poor bus performance, large amounts of traffic or a large number of devices on the same bus can cause this to rise. If this number is always above 170, you may want to consider loading the driver with the TxThreshold parameter set to a higher value, such as 200.

  • Page 39

    Link Status Change Count This counter indicates the number of times the link status has been changed. Rx CRC Error Count This counter indicates the number of receive packets with CRC errors. Packets less than 64 bytes are not counted in this statistic. Alignment Errors This counter holds the number of receive packets with alignment errors.

  • Page 40

    This counter contains the number of frames that were either not transmitted or re-transmitted due to a Tx DMA under-run. If the device is configured to retransmit on under-run, this counter may be updated multiple times for a single frame. Under-runs occur because a lack of PCI bandwidth resulted in the device's internal transmit FIFO running dry during the transmission of a frame.

  • Page 41

    This counter indicates the number of unsupported flow control frames that are received. This counter increments when a flow control packet is received which does not match the adapter definition of a flow control packet. This counter is not expected to increment. 64 Byte Packets Received This counter indicates the number of good packets received that are exactly 64 bytes in length, including CRC.

  • Page 42

    Good Octets Received Count HI This counter, in conjunction with the Good Octets Received Count LO, makes up a 64-bit counter that indicates the number of good octets received. This counter reflects the upper 32 bits of the 64-bit counter and is incremented each time the Good Octets Received Count LO has reached it maximum value and wraps to zero.

  • Page 43

    This counter, in conjunction with the Total Octets Transmitted HI, makes up a 64-bit counter that indicates the total number of octets transmitted. This counter reflects the lower 32 bits of the 64-bit counter. Total Octets Transmitted HI This counter, in conjunction with the Total Octets Transmitted LO, makes up a 64-bit counter that indicates the total number of octets transmitted.

    This counter indicates the number of receive packets with CRC errors. Packets less than 64 bytes are not counted in this counter. Tx Threshold This counter indicates the current value of the Early Transmit Threshold. The adapter starts transmitting the packet when the specified number of quad-words has been DMAed in from memory. Current IFS Value This counter indicates the current value of Inter Frame Spacing between back-to-back transmits.

    Using indirect addressing method, this test writes increment data into the MAC Hash Register table and reads back for verification. The memory read/write is done 100 times while incrementing test data. A2. Control register test Each register specified in the configuration contents are defined as read only bit and read/write bit. The test writes zero and one into the test bits to ensure the read only bits are not changed and read/write bits are changed accordingly.

    This tests the Testing Message Interrupt Function to see if it handles this interrupt correctly. The default is disabled. Starting the Q57DIAG.exe tests If you have not already done so, download and extract the HP SoftPaq file and then run MAKEDISK.BAT to create a driver disk. Boot to DOS or the EFI shell.

    This test issues multiple chip resets and constant driver load/unload to check for boot ROM appropriately loads the bootcode. This test requires a proper bootcode to be programmed into the non-volatile memory. C8. DMA engine test This tests the internal DMA engine by performing both DMA reads and writes at various location and various sizes.
