HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560FLB Adapter
HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560FLB Adapter
HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560FLB Adapter
The HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560FLB Adapter features the next generation of 10Gb Ethernet offering based on Intel 82599 chipset on
a FlexibleLOM form factor, further reducing power requirements for 2 ports of 10Gb Ethernet. It is designed for use with HPE BladeSystem
c-Class Gen8 servers.
It provides full duplex high performance Ethernet connectivity. The HPE 560FLB FlexibleLOM network adapter helps to extend the
benefits of virtualization beyond the server and into the rest of the infrastructure.
The HPE 560FLB supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding),
Wake-on-LAN, Receive Side Scaling (RSS), jumbo frames, EEE 1588, PXE boot and virtualization features such as VMware NetQueue,
Microsoft VMQ and Intels VMDq.

Standard Features
At a Glance Features
• Dual-port 10GbE FlexibleLOM network adapter that provides the flexibility to choose the type of LOM to
meet growing infrastructure needs
• Industry-leading throughput and latency performance
• Up to 40 Gb/s bi-directional near line rate throughput
• Hardware and software acceleration and offloads for stateless TCP/IP
• Supports Wake-on-LAN (at 1 Gb)
NOTE: Wake-on-LAN is supported only on Port1 from system power state S5.
• Improved small packet performance
• Interrupt Coalescing
• Support for Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)
• Integrated PHY and MAC
ThroughputTheoretical Bandwidth
This adapter delivers 20 Gb/s bi-directional Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gb/s per adapter), providing
the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks.
802.1p QoS Tagging
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.
802.1Q VLANs
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of this adapter to be
separated into multiple virtual NICs 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.
This adapter supports DPDK with benefit for packet processing acceleration and use in NFV deployments.
HPE Sea Of Sensors
Support for the HPE Sea of Sensors which is a collection of 32 sensors that automatically track thermal activity heat - across the server. When temperatures get too high, sensors can initiate fans and make other adjustments
to reduce energy usage. A significant improvement lies in the ability to apply fan speed increases only to the
portion of the system that is rising in temperature, rather than all six fans in unison, which reduces the amount
of energy used for cooling.
Interrupt Coalescing
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.
Jumbo Frames
This adapter supports Jumbo Frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9,000 byte (KB)
transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over five times the size of a standard 1500byte Ethernet frame. With Jumbo Frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and greater
CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.

Standard Features
Management Support
This adapter ships with agents that can be managed from HPE Systems Insight Manager or other management
application that support SNMP.
Message Signaled
Interrupt (Extended)
Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load balancing
interrupts between CPUs/cores.
Network Adapter
This adapter support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and increased
network bandwidth, the team of adapters can work together as a single virtual adapter, providing support for
several different types of teaming enabling IT administrators to optimize availability, improve performance
and help reduce costs.
Optimized for
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ helps meet the performance demands
of consolidated virtual workloads.
Preboot eXecution
Environment (PXE)
Support for PXE enables automatic deployment of computing resources remotely from anywhere. It allows a
new or existing server to boot over the network and download software, including the operating system, from a
management/ deployment server at another location on the network.Additionally, PXE enables decentralized
software distribution and remote troubleshooting and repairs.
For overall improved system response, this adapter supports standard TCP/IP offloading techniques including:
TCP/IP, UDP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network
adapter. Large send offload (LSO) or TCP segmentation offload (TSO) allows the TCP segmentation to be
handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.
Time Sync
Synchronization of system clocks throughout a network, achieving clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond
range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.
Maximum: The remaining warranty of the HPE product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year, limited
Minimum: One year limited warranty.
