The HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560M adapter features the latest generation 10GbE Intel® 82599 controller. The HPE 560M is a low cost, low-power dual port PCIe v.2.0 x8 lane mezzanine adapter designed for HPE ProLiant Gen8 BL-c servers. The HPE 560M addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation cloud and data center by providing unmatched features for virtualization, scalability to keep up with the HPE ProLiant Gen8 erver platform, with proven and reliable performance Hewlett Packard Enterprise customers have come to expect.
The HPE 560M supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), Receive Side Scaling (RSS), jumbo frames, IEEE 1588, PXE boot and virtualization features such as VMware NetQueue, Microsoft VMQ, Intel VMDq and Intel VT-c. The HPE 560M is SR-IOV ready.
Industry-leading throughput and latency performance, Supports HPE ProLiant Gen8 BL-c servers, Type A Mezzanine Adapter, Dual 10Gb ports provide up to 40Gb full duplex per adapter, Hardware and software acceleration and intelligent offloads for stateless TCP/IP Jumbo frames support, Supports receive-side scaling (RSS) for efficient distribution of network receive processing across multiple CPUs in multiprocessor systems, Supports the Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)Support Wake-on-LAN (at 1Gb)
The 20 Gbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gbps aggregate full duplex) delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks.
The HPE 560M adapter supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames) with a maximum transmission unit (MTU) of up to 9.5K bytes when running Ethernet and/or, which is over five times the size of standard 1500-byte Ethernet frame. Jumbo frames can help achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization. Jumbo frames are particularly useful for database transfers.
Interrupt coalescing (interrupt moderation) groups multiple packets, thereby reducing the number of interrupts sent to the host. This process optimizes host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.
The HPE 560M adapter supports the IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol that allows each physical port to be assigned to a VLAN for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance.
For overall improved system response, the HPE 560M adapter supports standard TCP/IP stateless offloading techniques including:
- TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network adapter. - Large send offload (LSO), also known as TCP segmentation offload (TSO), allows TCP segmentation to be handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.
The HPE 560M adapter support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and improve workload balance. These capabilities optimize availability, improve performance and help reduce costs.
The HPE 560M adapter can be administered from HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM). The adapters can be managed individually or in teams, providing SNMP based statistics for reporting purposes. The 560M adapter can also be managed by other applications with SNMP support.
