HP NC542m Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE Multifunction BL-c
Adapter
QuickSpecs
Overview
The HP NC542m Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE BLc Adapter is the newest member of the c-Class 10Gb adapter portfolio and the most
powerful. Based on the latest version of the Mellanox ConnectX family, the HP NC542m delivers the highest overall throughput and
the lowest latency of all the 10GbE adapters. Perfect for mission critical applications such as financial services and virtualized
environments, the adapter works with all BladeSystem c-Class G6 servers. When paired with the 6120XG Blade Switch, the
combination provides a comprehensive high bandwidth, high performance interface between the server edge and the network.

Adapter
Overview
At A Glance
Industry-leading throughput and latency performance
Supported on all G6 c-Class servers, in mezzanine slots1, 2 or 3 (full height servers) or slots 1 and 2 (half height servers).
Type I Adapter
Supports Mellanox LLE Low Latency Ethernet technology
IEEE 802.1p QoS 802.3x flow control, and 802.3ap 10GBase-KR
9K Jumbo frames
Dual 10Gb ports provide up to 40Gb full duplex per adapter
Supports HP's exclusive Flex-10 technology that allows you to set any bandwidth from 100Mb to 10Gb on up to four "Physical
Function " NICs per port when combined with the 10Gb Flex-10 Virtual Connect module
NOTE: Flex-10 support will be added via the VC3.15 release.
Models
HP NC542m Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE BL-c Adapter
NOTE: The NC542m network adapter card is required for each server blade connecting to a 10Gb interconnect
in bays 3-8 (HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure) or bays 3-4 (HP BladeSystem c3000 Enclosure)
NOTE: The NC542m requires a minimum of 2 GB of server memory.
NOTE: The NC542m supports linking at 1000Mbps or 10000Mbps when not connected to a Flex-10 device. The
NC542m will only support 1000Mbps when connected to a 1Gb Ethernet interconnect.

Performance

Jumbo Frames
802.1p QoS Tagging
TCP/IP Stateless
Offloading
The NC542m 20,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40
Gbps aggregate full duplex) delivers outstanding network performance that
improves response time and removes bottlenecks required for the next
generation data center. Using the latest Mellanox ConnectX -2 EN controller,
this adapter provides industry leading throughput and latency performance.
The NC542m support for jumbo frames (also known as extended frames)
permit up to a 9K byte transmission unit (MTU), which is over five times the
size of standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. The use of jumbo frames is a way
to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization. Jumbo frames are
particularly useful for database transfers and tape backups.
IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging allows the adapter to mark or
tag frames with a priority level across a QoS-aware network for improved
traffic flow.
For overall improved system response, the NC542m 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.
Interrupt Coalescence
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.
Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) resolves the single-processor bottleneck by
allowing the receive side network load from a network adapter to be shared
across multiple processors.
TOE
The NC542m does not support TOE.
iSCSI
The NC542m does not support accelerated iSCSI or iSCSI boot.
Low Latency Ethernet
Low Latency Ethernet is an efficient RDMA transport over Layer2 10GbE
networks for performance-critical and low-latency applications. LLE will be
supported when made available by Mellanox.
