Support for Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)
IEEE 1588 (Time Synchronization) ready
Dual-port 10 Gigabit The HPE 530T adapter delivers 20 Gbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port , providing the network
performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks that impact performance of next
generation data centers. 10Gb Ethernet bandwidth is ideal for high performance computing, database clusters,
and more.
Jumbo Frames
The HPE 530T adapter supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K byte
(KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard 1500byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and improve
CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.
TCP/IP Stateless
TCP, IP, UDP checksum offload, Large Send Offload (LSO), TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO). These features
optimize host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.
Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load
balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores..
802.1Q VLANs
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HPE 530T 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.
Tunnel Offload
Minimize the impact of overlay networking on host performance with tunnel offload support for VXLAN and
NVGRE. By offloading packet processing to adapters, customers can use overlay networking to increase VM
migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to performance. HPE Tunnel Offloading increases
I/O throughput, reduces CPU utilization, and lowers power consumption.NVGRE tunnel offload supports
Microsoft OS environments and VxLAN supports select VMware and Linux (RHEL and SUSE) environments.
TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) shifts the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to
the adapter's processor, freeing server CPU cycles for other operations.

HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 530T Adapter
Standard Features
Optimized for
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ help meet the performance demands of
consolidated virtual workloads.
Compliant with Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), accommodating multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) to
share single PCIe resources.
The HPE 530T Adapter by QLogic supports SR-IOV with appropriate server BIOS and OS support.
Checksum &
Normally the TCP Checksum is computed by the protocol stack. By selecting one of the "Checksum Offload"
parameters, the checksum can be computed by the adapter.
Segmentation Offload is technique for increasing outbound throughput of high-bandwidth network
connections by reducing CPU overhead. The technique is also called TCP segmentation offload (TSO) when
applied to TCP, or generic segmentation offload (GSO).
IPv6 uses 128-bit addressing allowing for more devices and users on the Internet. IPv4 supported 32-bit
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. RSS enables packet receive-processing to scale with the number of
available processors.
Synchronization of system clocks throughout a network, achieving clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond
range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.
Network Adapter
The HPE 530T 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. The HPE
530T provides support for several different types of teaming enabling IT administrators to optimize
availability, improve performance and help reduce costs.
The HPE 530T supports Network Partitioning (NPAR)for ProLiant Gen8 and Gen9 rack servers. Allowing
Partitioning (NPAR) administrators to configure a 10Gb port as four separate partitions or physical functions. Each PCI function is
associated with a different virtual NIC. To the OS and the network, each physical function appears as a
separate NIC port.
Network Management
The HPE 530T adapter can be administered from HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM). The adapters can be
managed individually or in teams, providing SNMP based statistics for reporting purposes. The HPE 530T
adapter can also be managed by other applications with SNMP support.
Server Integration
The HPE 530T adapter is a validated, tested, and qualified solution that is optimized for HPE ProLiant servers.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise validates a wide variety of major operating systems drivers with the full suite of
web-based enterprise management utilities including HPE Intelligent Provisioning and HPE Systems Insight
Manager that simplify network management.

Standard Features
This approach provides a more robust and reliable networking solution than offerings from other venders and
provides users with a single point of contact for both their servers and their network adapters.
Each HPE 530T ships with a suite of operating system-tailored configuration utilities that allow the user to
enable initial diagnostics and configure adapter teaming. This includes a patented teaming GUI for Microsoft
Windows operating systems. Additionally, support for scripted installations of teams in a Microsoft Windows
environment allow for unattended OS installations.
LED Indicators
The colored LEDs on each port of the HPE 530T adapter indicate link status and link activity.
Preboot eXecution PXE allows the server to boot over the network and download software residing in the network.
Environment (PXE)
HPE Sea of Sensors Support for HPE's 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 kick on fans and make other
adjustments to reduce energy usage. What makes it better is the upgrade from all six fans kicking on at one
time to a new system where only one kicks on - the one in proximity of the area that started heating up - thus
reducing the amount of energy used for cooling.
VMware NetQueue VMware NetQueue is technology that significantly improves performance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet network
adapters in virtualized environments.
and Microsoft
Virtual Machine
Queue (VMQ)
Microsoft Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) is a feature available on servers running Windows Server 2008 R2
with VMQ-enabled Ethernet adapters. VMQ uses hardware packet filtering to deliver packet data from an
external virtual machine network directly to virtual machines, which reduces the overhead of routing packets
and copying them from the management operating system to the virtual machine.
Maximum: The remaining warranty of the HPE product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year,
limited warranty).
Minimum: One year limited warranty.
