The following figure provides an example of the IB Performance tab.
The IB Performance tab displays the status of the I4 switch chip ports. A table describes the following information:
Connector – Rear panel connector respective to the I4 switch chip port
I4 Port – Port of the I4 switch chip
Link Status – Present link state of the that port. Either Down (red) or Active (green)
RX B/w (Gbps) – Instantaneous receive link bandwidth for that port
TX B/w (Gbps) – Instantaneous transmit link bandwidth for that port
By clicking Show Chart, a sixth column for the table is displayed:
B/W (Gbps) – Running bandwidth of the link for that port (0 to 40 Gbps)
Note - You must select the Poll I4 checkbox (default) in the control panel to populate the table with current information.
When displaying the B/W (Gbps) column, the added resource demand on the management controller slows its ability to display the information. Clicking Hide Chart removes the bandwidth charts.
By clicking on a column heading, the information in the table is sorted according to that column heading, either in ascending or descending order. For example, clicking the I4 Port heading sorts the information in the table according to the numeric sequence of the I4 ports. Clicking the Link Status heading sorts the information in the table according to the state of the links.
