  9. 2.2 Maximum Number of Each Type of Mounted PCI Card and Available PCI Slots

2.2 Maximum Number of Each Type of Mounted PCI Card and Available PCI Slots


2.2 Maximum Number of Each Type of Mounted PCI Card and Available PCI Slots
For the maximum number of each type of mounted PCI card and the available PCI slots, see Table 2-1 to Table 2-4 according to the domain OS version.
  1. "Maximum Number Mounted" means the maximum number of PCI cards that can be mounted in the SPARC M12-2 and the PCI expansion unit. The numbers in parentheses indicate the slot numbers where cards can be mounted, among the PCI slots of the SPARC M12-2. If there are no parentheses, all of the slots are available for mounting. If the PCI expansion unit is available for mounting, all of the PCI slots in the PCI expansion unit are available for mounting.
  2. The maximum number of connectable PCI expansion units is increased in XCP 3040 and later. If the maximum number of each type of mounted PCI card varies before and after XCP 3040, the maximum number of mounted PCI cards with XCP 3030 and earlier is shown in < >.
  3. The SPARC M12 has an I/O bandwidth of 8 GB/s (simplex) per root complex. The bandwidth between the PCI expansion unit and the SPARC M12 is also 8 GB/s. Therefore, if multiple PCI cards that share root complexes operate at the same time, each PCI card may not demonstrate the maximum performance. If a high-speed communication card requires a certain level of performance, secure the bandwidth with either one of the following actions:
    - Instead of mounting PCI cards in the PCI expansion unit, mount them in the PCI slots of the SPARC M12-2.

    - Do not mount other PCI cards in the PCI slots of the same root complex.
