Does anyone know if the 9506 supports the 8Gbps line rate to every port advertised with this new card?
We just had a customer purchase one for their 9506 that is running NX-OS 5.2.1. The card works fine but they aren't able to get 8Gpbs dedicated per port.
Did some research and found that the config guide states this in a foot note - "This bandwidth is available with the Fabric 3 module (DS-13SLT-FAB3) in the MDS 9513 switch"
Is this correct?
The data sheet states this - "With Arbitrated Local Switching enabled, this module supports 48-ports of line-rate 8-Gbps and is perfect for deploying dense virtual machine clusters with locally mapped storage"
The 9506 data sheet states that Arbitrated Local Switching is one of the features. Is this a config option or am I missing something?
