Footnotes:
1. These ports are QSFP slots and require a QSFP module.
2. Usage monitoring is only supported to 10Gbps.

40/100Gbps network support limitations

On 40Gbps and 100Gbps networks, there are a few points to be aware of:

  1. In order to achieve accurate capacity measurements, the MTU size is important. For 100Gbps networks, use a 9000-byte MTU. For 40Gbps networks, use a minimum 4000-byte MTU.
  2. On 100Gbps networks, the maximum “Total Capacity” we can detect is approximately 96Gbps (on a dual-ended path, approximately 85Gbps on a single-ended path) rather than 99.58Gbps (maximum capacity with 9000-byte MTU taking packet overhead into consideration), so the “Total Capacity” on Delivery monitoring performance charts will show a maximum of 96Gbps even if the network is capable of 99.58Gbps. For Diagnostics tests, the maximum “Total Capacity” measurement is approximately 50Gbps for both dual- and single-ended paths.
  3. On idle 100Gbps networks you may see average network utilizations of approximately 2Gbps. This shows as “Utilized Capacity (avg)” on Delivery monitoring performance charts. For networks with traffic this is not an issue and measurements are accurate.
  4. Using PathTest with TCP, the maximum load generated is 37Gbps.

Supported SFP/SFP+/SFP28/QSFP/QSFP28 modules

A wide range of SFP/SFP+/SFP28/QSFP/QSFP28 modules (both optical and electrical) are supported on ports 2 and 3.

AppNeta has validated the following 40G QSFP+ modules:

  • FluxLight (CISCO-OEM) QSFP-40G-SR4
  • Mellanox MMA1B00-B150D (40G SR4)

and the following 100G QSFP28 modules:

  • Arista QSFP-100G-CWDM4
  • Juniper JNP-QSFP-100G-SR4
  • Mellanox MMA1B00-C100D (100G SR4)

r1000 power supply replacement

The r1000 comes equipped with dual redundant hot-swap power supplies, allowing the system to continue operating when one power supply has failed or has been removed.

An LED at the back of the power supply module indicates the power supply status:

LED Color Power Supply status
Red Failed
Yellow System power is off
Green Normal operation

To replace a failed power supply:

  1. Unplug the power cord from the failed power supply module (a red LED indicates the failed module)
  2. Push the release tab on the back of the power supply then pull out the power supply (see diagram below).
  3. Push the replacement power supply module into the power bay until you hear a click.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the new module.
  5. Verify that the new power supply is working properly. The green LED will be illuminated and the power supply fans will be rotating.
