For that breakout cable - this may be a stupid question. I know that to get fiber stats you have to use the brocade SFPs (non brocade brands don't get fiber statistics on the SFPs from the 6610 readme). Does the breakout cable affect being able to get fiber stats or is it just specific to the SPFs?Yes, I have used that exact breakout with a 6610 with no issues.
Unless you know how to splice and reterminate fiber, that's not going to do you a whole lot of good. The first cable is a single piece, nothing detaches.
Just for some info - I just got my 6610 up and running (thanks to you). I was only expecting my 6610 to come with one power supply as it showed only one in the seller listing but it did come with two as well as two fans.the 6610 never gets silent/very quiet, but with rev B power supplies it should spin WAY down after boot, and you shouldn't be able to hear it behind a closet door. I suspect the people with very loud 6610's in this thread have rev A PSUs
Do they have any shorter cables of those under 10m? I found IBM 59Y1926 10M QLogic Infiniband QDR-QSFP Optical Cable 883436055796 | eBay but it's more expensive than the 30m and couldn't find any shorter ones. 3m would be perfect.for longer distances active DACs are generally cheapest IBM 59Y1930 30M QLogic Infiniband QDR QSFP Optical Cable | eBay
you gonna make the board available beyond yourself? i know i would be interested in a few.In regard to fan speeds, I started working on a small circuit based on an ATTiny25/45/85 that could either outright fake a valid RPM based on detected voltage at the fan connector, or multiply a detected RPM signal by the appropriate factor to match the factory-required fan. It's the same circuit for both options, just different programming. Of course the circuit would give a '0 RPM' flatline if it sees the replacement fan has stopped turning.
If I didn't screw up my math, with a 8MHz clock and appropriate prescaling, it should be able to emulate fan speeds between ~915RPM and ~234,375RPM. With a 1MHz clock I could get that down to a range of 114RPM-29,297RPM.
Either way should cover the range of just about every computer fan out there. (Please tell me there's nothing above a quarter million RPM)
So far, I managed to shrink it down to ~0.85"x0.6" (including an ICSP card-edge header). It would piggyback right on a compatible fan connector. Early hardware design is all done, I just have to get some parts to begin prototyping the coding.
Haven't coded for microcontrollers in nearly a decade so I'm all kinds of rusty. Should be a fun little project.
edit: I might switch to an ATTiny202, since it uses 16-bit timers it would give far more fine-grained control over the emulated RPM.
Not sure if I'll sell them, but I will definitely make the code and schematics available to everyone. Problem with selling something that has relatively low value from here is that shipping will often end up being more than the board itself.you gonna make the board available beyond yourself? i know i would be interested in a few.
you might be suprised, if you can make the pcb board files available too would be cool after you have the PCB debugged and your code working.Not sure if I'll sell them, but I will definitely make the code and schematics available to everyone.

if the Ruckus r720's are anything like my r700's you will be very happy with them. you gonna run the ZD (Zone Director) to manage them? im in a 2600 sq ft house and ended up only needing 2 and have 3 AP's sitting here.Finally pulled the trigger on 2 Ruckus R720 APs. Will install the unleashed controller firmware on both APs. I'm still confused on the 803.3af vs 802.3at POE option on the AP and which port on the R720 to connect to my ICX6610 switch.
In addition, on the ICX6610, it looks like LLDP needs to be turned on and the switch needs to advertise power via LLDP.
Curious is anyone using a 6450 just as a l2 switch?
