For some reason I can't even get a local loop working using the SFP+ ports on my ICX7250-24P (PoE). I connected two 10G-SFPP-SR transcievers from fs.com (Brocade-compatible) using an 1m LC UPC to LC UPC cable. The switch is running 08.0.80eT213.

I connected the modules to 1/2/5 and 1/2/7 using this configuration:

Code:
interface ethernet 1/2/5                                      
  optical-monitor                                              
  no spanning-tree
  no flow-control both
!

Any ideas why the link doesn't come up?

So, having not ever seen someone physically loop ports on a switch like this, what is the purpose of this setup? Off-hand, I'd expect this to not work on any switch because it's the same MAC on each end.

I just wanted to verify that the transceivers are working before anything else I'd connect it to arrives. You're right about the same MAC, but should it just be... silent?

Hey guys,

I need a bit of help. Since this afternoon my ICX6610 is acting in a weird way. The symptom is packet drop/delay.

See below a sample ping

Code:

My ICX config is here -> m4r1k/nfvi_lab

A reload as well as poweroff (for more than 40 min) did not make any change.

Do you have any idea? Thanks a lot!

Follows a couple of dumps from the ICX.

Looks like someone is dumping a bunch of 7150-48ZP on ebay.


Still out of my budget... So so close though.

For those that don't know, the "ZP" models have PoH 802.3bt for up to 90W equipment, per port, as well as 16x 1/2.5/10 RJ45 ports.

I'm sure with the largest PoE budget of all 7150 series, 1480 W w/2x 920W PSUs, and those PSUs being the largest PSUs in the 7150 series, it would be loud. Very loud. Specs say 52 dBA.

My 7250-48P is the loudest thing in my rack (yeah, haven't done the fan swap yet), and it's rated at 45.9 dB. It drove me crazy when playing with it in my office for a few days. Much louder than my stock SC846 chassis that I've IPMI'd the fans down to 0%. Louder than the 3D printers I haven't replaced the loud stepper drivers in.
Thanks for this just picked one up.

Hey guys,

I need a bit of help. Since this afternoon my ICX6610 is acting in a weird way. The symptom is packet drop/delay.

See below a sample ping

Code:

My ICX config is here -> m4r1k/nfvi_lab

A reload as well as poweroff (for more than 40 min) did not make any change.

Do you have any idea? Thanks a lot!

Follows a couple of dumps from the ICX.

Hey guys,

Quick update, this morning I did a factory reset and the problem didn't go away (the config was default and IP assigned by DHCP)
I was originally running the 08.0.30t and now upgraded to 08.0.30u but the issue is still here.

It's weird because if I detach all DACs (10 and 40Gbps) the packet drop/delay is gone but there is still noticeable delay.

Can anybody advise? Replacing it, it's also an answer ... just this expense wasn't planned but I'll deal with it

Thanks!

@m4r1k

Paste the running-config and the log and are you pinging from a device directly connected to the switch? Is the switch being used as the primary gateway of the device doing the pinging?

@m4r1k

Paste the running-config and the log
Running config is here -> m4r1k/nfvi_lab
Tomorrow I'll share the system logs (but there is literally nothing)

and are you pinging from a device directly connected to the switch?
Yes, I was directly connected to the mgmt port and also to various 10 and 40 Gbps ports.
Nothing in between (besides the switch).

Is the switch being used as the primary gateway of the device doing the pinging?
Any network communication (ICMP, TCP, UDP, GRE etc) going through the switch has delay and packet drop.

This applies to the VE interfaces and anything attached to it (1, 10, and 40Gbps).

To be clear, until last week there wasn't any issue with the Switch.

Earlier today I opened it up and it looks all good: no dust and nothing looks burn down.
The main CPU in the middle was extremely hot tho, much hotter than what reported by the sensors (50-ish C)

Sorry I missed that you had the running-config linked already.

Th pasted ping shows the packet delays when pinging the switch. In your latest post, you say it happens to any traffic going through the switch (i.e. edge device to edge device). If the latter is true, than there may be an issue. If pings between edge devices are not experiencing this issue, than it is likely normal. Traffic sent to the switch itself is shunted to the management CPU and given low priority. The pings you see are higher than I've seen thus far on my setup, however I'm not sure how loaded up your switch is with traffic.

Digging up this old post from 9 months ago...

@EngineerNate Did that cable work? Also, are we able to assign individual ports on the rear module to systems? Ashamed to say I actually dug through your user history and rear all of your posts since that one above. Didn't see any follow-up. ;)
Sorry I missed this, this last year was bonkers and I didn't get to play with the switch at all after I got it!

Looks like fodeesha answered the question for me though. Shame it doesn't have that flexibility, though with the 4x10g modules being so cheap it's not a huge loss.

Hi,

I'm looking for a L3 switch and have been told to have a look at Brocade ICX. I'm interested in an ICX7250-48p for my homelab.

As I do need SFP+ 10Gb ports, I would like to have all the eight ports available with 10Gb. I used Mr. Google and saw an item ' 8X10G-LIC-POD' that I have to use. Is this the way to go - seems to be quite expensive... :cool:
Searching the forum for this item the result was '0'...

I'm sorry for this newbie question but I'm new to this and would like to get the correct switch...

Happy Easter!

Tom

Hi EngineerNate,

I read the first post already. This is why I decided to go for the ICX-7250-48p.

Reading:
...
medium beef
24/48 1gbE copper (PoE available)
8x 10gbE SFP+
...
I would expect all eight ports to run at 10Gb.

According to the datasheet the ports are upgradable... OK, there seems to be a way 1Gb->10Gb.

Searching for an offer at Ebay I saw something like 'ICX7250-48P-2X10G' or within the description '... ALSO HAVE 3 THAT HAVE THE CX7250-48P-8X10G-LIC-POD FOR $1300 EACH'. I haven't found an offer 'ICX7250-48P-8x10Gb'.

I just want to be sure to have all 8 ports at 10Gb. If I have to buy some specific device (Ebay description!?) I would like to know before I place an order.

Thank you!

Tom

all 8 sfp+ ports are 10g. Follow the guide and all will be available to you without additional purchase.

From the opening post:
Brocade switches will take any make of optics, the brand does not matter. I've been using quite a few of the $7 dollar 10gbase-SR avago/jdsu/etc modules off of ebay with no issues for a few years. However since "official" Brocade SFP+ modules have come down in price to around $8, I would recommend those as they unlock optical monitoring, so you can see link strength, module temp, etc. They will take any manner of DAC's as well. Same goes for the 40gbE QSFP+ ports on the rear of the 6610 - optics or DACs, your choice.
Where do you find these for $7??
Cheapest I can find is around $50...

Search for "57-0000075-01" on eBay. They're Brocade 10G SR modules for around $10. Base price could be lower but you'd need to pay shipping in those cases.

I took @datanet's advice and got some 40G transceivers for $10. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/mto-questions.31800/post-298142
Thanks. You have these with cable included, do they work?

I don't have these specific passive copper direct attached cables. DACs are different from transceiver + fiber cables. You won't be able to get temperature, power readings, etc. from DACs.
