The Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card operates and is stored in an environment defined by the following parameters:
The Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card is designed to provide continuous full bandwidth performance with flash disk temperatures up to 73 °C. Qualified host platforms with required software updates operate with sufficient margin to the maximum temperature under worst case environments.
Should the system maximum operating temperature be exceeded, or a system fault occur which causes internal temperatures of the flash disks to rise above this limit, the card responds as follows:
74 °C - Disk write throttling is engaged to reduce card power.
Card status LED yellow.
Temperature warning displays in ddcli -health output.
76 °C - Additional disk write throttling is engaged.
Card status LED red.
Critical temperature status displays in ddcli -health output.
Caution - Sustained critical temperatures may cause data loss.
