Intel Ethernet Controller I350 Dual 1Gb on board + Intel I-350 Embedded
Dual Port GbE Activation for IBM System x (FoD)
Overview
This IBM server ships with four physical ports of 10/100/1000 based on Intel's I-350
Ethernet Controller. Two ports are active in the standard configuration, and the other
two are dormant. Clients may purchase a license that will activate the dormant two
ports by purchasing Intel I-350 Embedded Dual Port GbE Activation for IBM System
x (FoD).
This provides the client with a total of four ports of 10/100/1000 Ethernet without
using any PCIe slots.
Features at a glance:
•
•
•
•
•
•
GigE Pay as you grow with IBM Feature on Demand. This nondisruptive
enablement process is perfect for clients who require a low-cost 2-port GigE
network solution that is included in the standard configuration. Those clients
who desire the flexibility of adding additional ports, while not having to open the
server and insert new adapters, will enjoy the convenience and practicality of
this IBM solution. IBM's FoD will activate the two dormant ports on the server,
bringing the total number of ports up to four while not using any PCIe slots.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE). The I350 supports the IEEE802.3az EEE
standard so that during periods of low network activity, EEE reduces the power
consumption of an Ethernet connection by negotiating with the switch port to
transition to a low power idle (LPI) state. This reduces power to approximately
50% of its normal operating power, saving power on both the network and the
switch ports. When increased traffic is detected, the controller and the switch
quickly come back to full power to handle the increased traffic. EEE is supported
for both 1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX.
DMA Coalescing (DMAC). Typically, when a packet arrives, DMA calls are made
to transfer the packet within the server. These calls "wake up" the processor,
memory, and other system components from a lower power state in order to
perform the tasks required to handle the incoming packet.
LAN Acceleration. TCP stateless offloads such as TCP/IP checksum, TCP
segmentation, Receive Side Coalescing (RSC), and Receive Side Scaling (RSS)
iSCSI accelerations benefit from CRC offloads as well as integrated host-based
initiators running on the host processor. I/O Virtualization technologies such
as VMDq (used in VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ) provide increased
throughput and reduced CPU usage by offloading the network processing in the
hypervisors.
Flexible I/O Virtualization. The Intel I350 includes Virtualization Technology
for connectivity (VT-c) to deliver I/O virtualization and QoS features designed
directly into the silicon. Using VT-c, network connectivity models used by servers
today evolve to more efficient models by providing port partitioning, multiple Rx/
Tx queues, and on-controller QoS functionality for both virtual and non-virtual
servers.
VMDq. VMDq works in conjunction with VMware NetQueue or Microsoft Virtual
Machine Queues (VMQ), in their respective hypervisors, to use the on-controller
sorting and queuing functionality for traffic steering and Rx/Tx round-robin
scheduling for balanced bandwidth allocation across multiple transmit and receive
queues. These technologies enable the hypervisor to represent a network port as
multiple ports that are assigned to the VMs to improve overall performance of I/
O operations.

designed to support the standard features of the System x3530 M4 server and to
maintain compatibility with many current software programs.
For detailed information about IBM and non-IBM devices, adapters, software, and
network operating systems supported with xSeries® servers, visit
http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/
Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner, or refer to the IBM Sales
Manual for information on the compatibility of hardware and software for xSeries
servers. The Sales Manual is updated periodically as new features and options are

Limitations
•
•
•
•
•
•
SolidState Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles that each
cell can incur. As a result each solid state device has a maximum amount of write
cycles it can be subjected to, documented as TBW (Total Bytes Written). IBM
is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached the maximum
guaranteed number of write cycles. This limit may be revealed as the device
failing to respond to system-generated commands or becoming incapable of
being written to.
The System x3530 M4 server contains a single, configurable serial port. It can
be configured to be operating-system-controlled, service-processor-controlled,
or shared between the two. You can set the configuration by altering the BIOS.
The default configuration from the factory is in the shared position. In the shared
position, the service processor controls the port until the operating system
is running, then the operating system takes control. The service processor
can regain control of the port for user-configured dial-out situations or if the
operating system is not available, but operating system control cannot be
reestablished without resetting the server.
System x3530 M4 servers can address a maximum of 192 GB of system memory.
All supported system memory is addressable through direct memory access. The
System x3530 M4 server supports 4 GB UDIMM and 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16
GB DDR3 SDRAM Registered DIMM memory. All supported DIMMs can coexist
in the same system. Refer to the Planning information section for supported
memory options.
The IBM x3530 M4 contains built-in Software RAID, ServeRAID C105. It supports
SATA drives and either a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array must be created. VMware does
not support ServeRAID C105 and there is no native driver support for Linux
distributions. The ServeRAID H1110 Controller for IBM System X, Option Part
Number 81Y4492, is a cost-optimized hardware RAID upgrade which supports
SAS or SATA drives and is supported natively by all operating systems supported
on x3530 M4.
To ensure proper air flow for cooling, the System x3530 M4 server requires
a rack with a perforated door, such as the NetBAY42 SR or NetBAY25 SR. An
alternative is to remove the front door of rack cabinets where the door panel is of
solid construction.
Microprocessor upgrades must be of the same QPI link speed, Integrated Memory
Controller frequency, core frequency, power segment, internal cache size, and
type. Mixing processors of different stepping levels but same model (as per
CPUID instruction) is supported. Mixing microprocessors of different QPI, core
speed, cache size, core quantity and power segment is not supported.
Refer to the Software requirements section for operating system limitations.

•
•
•
•
The rack must meet EIA-310-D standards for mounting flanges and hole
locations.
The front to rear distance of the mounting flanges must be 635 - 788 mm (25 31 in)
The thickness of the mounting flanges must be 1.9 - 3.3 mm (0.08 and 0.13 in).
The mounting flanges must have either 7.1 mm (0.28 in) diameter holes or 9.6
mm (0.38 in) square holes on the standard EIA hole spacing.
The rack must have a minimum depth of 50 mm (1.97 in) between the front
mounting flange and inside of the front door for appropriate cooling.
The rack must have a minimum depth of 166 mm (6.53 in) between the rear
mounting flange and inside of the rear door to install the server and provide
cable management space.
The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between the front and rear
mounting flanges must be 467 mm (18.2 in) to accommodate the width of the
server and the slide mounting brackets.
The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between each door and the
mounting flanges must be 484 mm (19.1 in) to accommodate the slide mounting
brackets.
The rack must include perforated front and rear doors and must not prevent the
flow of cool air into or out of the rack.
The weight-handling capacity of the rack must be able to support the maximum
rack configuration, including all servers, external cables, power distribution units,
and so on.
The rack must provide proper stabilization so that the rack does not become
unstable when servers are pulled out for service.
Processor options
The System x3530 M4 server is an Intel Xeon processor system that supports
internal processing speeds of up to 2.40 GHz and processing operations to memory
up to 1600 MHz. It contains an integrated, shared among cores L3 cache. This
dual-socket system supports a second processor with the same QPI link speed,
Integrated Memory Controller frequency, core frequency, power segment, internal
cache size and type of processor as the first.
Powerconsiderations
The System x3530 M4 server includes 460-watt or 675-watt high efficiency power
supplies. This power supply is capable of providing sufficient power to run the server
fully configured with supported devices.

Cable orders
The dual 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex, Ethernet PCI-E controllers, standard
with the System x3530 M4 server, are connected directly to independent RJ-45
connectors. The RJ-45 connectors provide a 10/100/1000 BASE-T interface (either
at half- or full-duplex) for connecting twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network.
Cabling is not included with the server. To connect the Ethernet controller to a
repeater or switch, use a UTP cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100
Mbps, or higher, Category 5e, or better, cabling must be used.
There are no additional cabling requirements, other than for system power,
keyboard, mouse, and monitor connections.
