Hello Ramesh,

the built-in ports are managed without going via the bus used to reach the external (for the NPE) Port Adapters.

The NPE G2 has an I/O controller on the board and it uses it to reach the PAs via the PCI bus(es)

To be noted also performances of built in ports on NPE G1/G2 is better for the same reason

Hope to help
