Inside the Configuration Menu
We used Intel's XL710 chipset drivers to test the Supermicro AOC-S40G-iQ2. The latest driver for Linux is 1.1.23, and the latest driver for Windows-based systems is ProWare 19.5.
The driver comes with preconfigured profiles of the optimize settings based on different server scenarios. You can also build your own custom profile by digging down into the individual settings to tune performance. The preloaded profiles are detailed below.
Standard Server - This profile is optimized for typical servers.
Web Server - This profile is optimized for IIS and HTTP based web servers.
Virtualization Server - This profile is optimized for Microsoft's Hyper-V virtualization environment; selecting this profile disables Data Center Bridging (DCB).
Storage Server - This profile is optimized for Fibre Channel over Ethernet, and iSCSI over DCB performance. Selecting this profile will disable SR-IOV and VMQ.
Storage + Virtualization - This profile is optimized for a combination of storage and virtualization requirements.
Low Latency - This profile is optimized to minimize network latency.
The Performance Options tab opens another set of settings.
The drive allows users to configure teaming with two or more ports from Intel NIC chipsets.
