      Hi,

       

      I have a few questions, is preparing for the research environment (VMware ESXi 6.5, VM's - Centos):

      1. What is the difference between ConnectX-3 and ConnectX-3 PRO? (RoCE v2?)

      2. What is the maximum number of virtual functions per port for ConnectX-3 and ConnectX-3 PRO ?  (126 VFs ? - https://community.mellanox.com/docs/DOC-2368#jive_content_id_Overview )

      3. Is there a correlation between the number of cores / threads  and the number of VFs ? For example: Dell PowerEdge R710 12 cores / 24 threads, 96GB RAM.

      4. I want to configure RDMA (RoCE v1 / v2) on Cisco NEXUS 3048TP-1GE. Need to enable PFC on peer-link ports (running vPC) or just port between card and swich?

       

      Best Regards,

      Robert
