Multi Queue Network Card List?

Jump to solution

We use R80.10 with HP dl360 g10 open server in our company. Now we have to add new network cards that support MQ. In the HCL you cannot see if the network cards support MQ. Is there a recommendation or an overview of the supported network cards here?

Hi @uror,

I once took the effort and referenced all network cards from the HCL to multi queue. You can find more information in this article:

R80.x - Performance Tuning Tip - Multi Queue

The following list shows an overview with all HP cards from Check Point HCL for open server from 11/22/2018.

 

The list is cross-referenced to the Intel drivers. I do not assume any liability for the correctness of the information. These lists should only be used to help you find the right drivers. It is not an official document of Check Point!

 

So please always read the official documents of Check Point.

Uror,

all shown 10G cards in the R80.30 GAiA 3.10 tab from vendor HP supports MultiQueue :

These do support multiqueue and you do get 25G so a nice bonus 🙂

Hi,

We are also using open servers from HPE. We are planning to refresh some of them shortly with DL380 G10.

In the past we have purchased NICs that are on the HCL, but the drivers for some of them are tg3 and be2net and from what I understand they do not support multiqueue and have performance issues.

I have added the current list of supported HPE NICs from the HCL below. I would appreciate recommendations about the NICs from this list. We would need all of the types (1 Gbps copper, 10 Gbps fiber and 25 Gbps fiber).

1 Gbps copper

HPE Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366T Adapter
HPE Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 366FLR Adapter

10 Gbps fiber

HP Ethernet 10GB 4P 563SFP+
HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port SFP+ X710-DA2 Adapter
HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port FLR-SFP+ X710-DA2 Adapter
HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port SFP+ X520-DA2 Adapter
NC552SFP 10GbE 2-port Ethernet Server
NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter
NC550SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter

10/25 Gbps fiber

HPE Ethernet 10/25Gb 2-port SFP28 MCX4121A-ACUT Adapter
HPE Ethernet 10/25Gb 2-port 661SFP28 Adapter

 

We are currently running R80.20 take 183, but are planning to upgrade to R80.40 soon.

Thanks for your help!

Best regards,

Harry
