LREC9710PF PCI Express x4 Single Port Gigabit MM Server Adapter (1x LC Broadcom 5708 Based)
The LR-LINK LREC9710PF is a high performance PCI Express
multifunction server network adapter for either standard or low profile slots in
ProLiant servers running over a fiber-optic network environment.
In addition to delivering Gigabit Ethernet networking, the LREC9710PF-LX
supports TOE (TCP/IP Offload Engine) for Windows only, Internet Small Computer
System Interface (iSCSI).

Performance Gigabit Ethernet Throughput
Up to 1000Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network
performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks across the
TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) for Windows moves the processing of
data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the
network card, freeing CPU cycles for
other duties. The LREC9710PF supports
TOE when Windows TOE Chimney is installed. With TOE, network communications are
improved, and server efficiency is increased.
Accelerated iSCSI allows the
LREC9710PF to multi-function as both as a network adapter and as a storage host
bus adapter, thereby providing access to storage platforms and to servers
over a single connection. Additionally, the LREC9710PF offloads the iSCSI
software to the hardware for improved performance. Accelerated iSCSI on 1GbE
multifunction server adapters purchased as options ships as a standard feature,
at no additional charge.
Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) and
Switch-Assisted Load Balancing (SLB) are two advanced features used to build a
bigger pipe for improved networking bandwidth. These port bonding techniques
enable users to use up to eight adapter ports in a ProLiant server and
aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of 16 Gigabits per
second full-duplex transmission. The LREC9710PF can be configured with other
NC-series Ethernet server adapter teams supported on ProLiant servers.
Checksum and Segmentation Offloads, and Interrupt Coalescing
When running as a standard Gigabit adapter, the LREC9710PF features TCP
Checksum Offloads as well as TCP Segmentation Offloads and Interrupt
Coalescence. These features reduce the
load on the CPU for overall improved system response. Interrupt Coalescence is
a feature that groups multiple packets and issues a single interrupt to the
host.This process improves host efficiency.
Scalability and Reliability
Network Fault Tolerance, sometimes called "failover" or
"NIC redundancy," allows for the installation of multiple LREC9710PF
server adapters or other network adapters so that the active device can be
backed up by a redundant adapter to improve availability. The HP teaming
utility also allows users to specify that when a failed adapter is fixed and
replaced, the original adapter resumes its function as the primary network connection.
LREC9710PF supports SNMP.
