In the rear panel diagram, there are 36 InfiniBand receptacles displayed, labeled 0A to 17A and 0B to 17B. When a connector is physically present in an InfiniBand receptacle, the receptacle changes from a black rectangle to a gray rectangle with three indicators.
The following table describes the three indicators of the InfiniBand connection rectangle.
Moving the mouse cursor over an indicator that is orange or red opens a small window that states the reason for the respective state:
A center indicator is orange because the link is at a speed slower than QDR, such as SDR or DDR.
A right indicator is red because there are errors (symbol, recovery, and so on) on the link.
The following figures provide an example of moving the mouse cursor over the red right indicator for connection 6A.
Clicking on the connection opens the InfiniBand connector status window for that connector. The following figure provides an example of a InfiniBand connector status window.
At the top of the window are the connector name and the respective I4 switch chip port. There are three sets of information in the window, the cable FRU ID information, information about the I4 switch chip port (Switch Port), and similar information about the port’s InfiniBand peer (Peer Port).
The cable FRU ID information includes:
Date of manufacture
The port information includes:
Device name and type
GUID, LID, and respective port
Link status and quality
Errors of various categories
Clicking on Close dismisses the InfiniBand connector status window.
