Switch configuration recommendations for network switches in Mellanox and Intel E810-based deployments
This document consists of switch configurations for all Mellanox and Intel E810-based deployments. The Azure Stack HCI Engineering team recommends that you use DCB (PFC/ETS) for all Mellanox and Intel E810-based deployments on switch ports that are used for RDMA traffic.
We have updated our guidance for all Mellanox and Intel E810-based deployments. If you have existing deployments that followed our earlier guidance, we recommend that you configure PFC/ETS for all RDMA ports.
Note: For brownfield deployments where DCB is already configured on the switch, changing the cluster-traffic priority to 7 is optional.
|Flow Control||DCB (PFC/ETS)||DCB (PFC/ETS) 1|
|UDP RDMA (RoCE)|| |
|iWARP||Intel E810||Intel E810|
1 This is a new recommendation based on Microsoft and networking guidelines to include DCB (PFC) for all Mellanox and Intel E810-based deployments.
