Abstract: NETFINITY 5600: PEER TO PEER ADAPTER CARD PERFORMANCE
If a card which uses Peer-to-Peer PCI Bus Mastering is used in a Netfinity 5600 server, performance might be much lower than expected.
PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
a compatible PCI adapter that uses Peer-to-Peer PCI Bus Mastering.
Note: The Netfinity ServerProven Compatibility web page is vailable from the following URL:
It is strongly recommended that both the master and the card it is accessing are installed in the same PCI bus.
Practically this means that they should be in slots 1 and 2 or in any 2 of slots 3-5 (Slots 1-2 are on PCI Bus A; Slots 3-5 are on PCI Bus B).
Note: If this advice is not followed, performance will be seriously affected.
