Introduction

1.1

How to Use this Guide

The SANblade QLogic host bus adapters (HBAs) supported in this document are described in the following paragraphs; they are collectively referred to as the QLE2360/2362 HBA unless otherwise noted.

QLE2360 (single channel, half size, full-height bracket, optical media)

QLE2362 (dual channel, half size, full-height bracket, optical media)

The QLE2360/2362 is a PCI Express to Fibre Channel optical media host adapter.

First, install the QLE2360/2362 HBA according to the directions in the hardware installation section (see section 2). Please refer to the software driver Readme files for software installation instructions.

1.2

General Description

Thank you for selecting the QLE2360/2362 Fibre Channel (FC) HBA. The QLE2360/2362 HBA is an intelligent, high-performance adapter designed for high-end systems. The intelligence and performance are derived from the ISP2322 FC Controller, making the QLE2360/2362 HBA a leading-edge host adapter. The ISP2322 combines a powerful RISC processor, a Fibre Channel protocol manager (FPM) with one or more 2-Gb Fibre Channel transceivers, and a peripheral component interconnect-extended (PCI-X) local bus interface. The QLE2360/2362 HBA supports all FC peripherals that support private loop direct attach (PLDA) and fabric loop attach (FLA). Installation of the QLE2360/2362 HBA is quick and easy.

The QLE2360/2362 HBA is a single-slot PCI Express bus expansion board that interfaces a x4 (four-lane) PCI Express bus to two FC optical media buses. The QLE2360/2362 HBA supports oneand four-lane operations. One ISP2322 FC Controller supports two independent fibre channel ports. An Intel 41210 PCI Express to PCI-X bridge interfaces the ISP’s PCI-X bus to the host’s PCI Express bus.

1.3

What is Fibre Channel?

Fibre Channel technology is outlined in the SCSI-3 Fibre Channel Protocol (SCSI-FCP) standard. Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transport technology used for mass storage and networking. It connects mainframes, super computers, workstations, storage devices, and servers.

1 – Introduction

Technical Support

Q

Fibre Channel supports data transfer rates up to 200 MBps half-duplex and 400 MBps full-duplex on optical interfaces. The QLE2360/2362 HBA uses a

multimode optical interface for intermediate distances (less than 500 meters at the data rate of 1 Gbps; less than 300 meters at the data rate of 2 Gbps).

With its increased connectivity and performance, Fibre Channel is the I/O technology preferred and used by system designers.

1.4

Technical Support

Customers should contact their authorized maintenance provider for technical support of their QLogic HBA products. QLogic-direct customers may contact QLogic Technical Support; others will be redirected to their authorized maintenance provider.
