    ConnectX-3 dual port 40Gbit MCX354-QCBT NICs flashed to FCBT work, but show "cable disconnected" after Windows computer goes to sleep or shuts down

    The configurations with mlxconfig are persistent over resets and power cycles. I use HP connectx-3 pro in a 40Gb/s point to point between 2 linux machines using port 1 and 10Gb/s in port 2 with a CRS309 switch . No issues since fixed at ethernet mode in both machines.

    That is a well know "bug". The problem is the VPI protocol trying to select between ethernet and infiniband ... Solution 01: just fix the protocol from auto to ethernet in the properties of the adapter in windows. Solution 02: fix the protocol to ethernet using mlxconfig Example: ( adjust the...

    Mellanox MCX354-FCBT on M.2 riser connected at 40Gbit only achieving 6.5Gbit in iperf3

    Looks odd since PCIe 1.1 and 2.0 use a 10/8 error coding and PCIe 3.0 use a 66/64.

    Mellanox MCX354-FCBT on M.2 riser connected at 40Gbit only achieving 6.5Gbit in iperf3

    33Gb/s in most tests. This is point to point using a QSFP+ AOC cable. Using QSFP to SFP+ adapter limits to 10Gb/s allowing to use my Mikrotik CRS309. Iperf3 shows 9.92 Gb/s using MTU 9000.

    Mellanox MCX354-FCBT on M.2 riser connected at 40Gbit only achieving 6.5Gbit in iperf3

    PCIe 3.0 x4 have a little mess than 32Gb/s of bandwidth. In X570 systems you have a PCIe 4.0 x4 at last slot but the bandwidth is shared with the southbridge including various usb and the 2nd M.2. slot. I use connectx-3 in a X570 system ( Asrock X570 Creator ) in slot 1 sharing lanes with the...

    Questions about Tp-link TL-SG3428X (24 port + 4 SFP+)

    I have one TL-SG3428X at my homelab. SFP+ RJ45 transceivers works ok at 10Gb/s but have problems in upload at 5 or 2.5Gb/s. The problem is mainly at the transceivers and the only that works 100% is based on Marvel Aquantia chipset. I tried various Mellanox DAC and Avago/Finisar AOC cables and...

    Supermicro ConnectX-3 AOC-CIBF-m1 in Proxmox

    If it's not a problem fix the card ports at ethernet mode ( not IB not VPI ) Using mlxconfig ( Using mlxconfig - MFT v4.11.0 - NVIDIA Networking Docs ) set LINK_TYPE_P1=2 so the port always will be ethernet not needed to be configured anymore . The fw is quite old. Maybe you need to update. The...
