Statistics (RMON1)

Advanced FPGA-based Host CPU Offload

ANIC adapters provide all RMON1 (RFC 2819) related per-port statistics such as packets received, packets in error, dropped packets and broadcast/multicast packet count. The implementation also goes beyond the RFC to provide a packet count for various packet sizes ranging from the minimum 64 bytes up to and including jumbo frames (greater than 1518 bytes).

ANIC Onboard Sensors

A variety of information is provided with respect to the condition of the ANIC hardware itself. Some of the information is available via LEDs on the front panel of the adapter and other information via the software API. The following is a sample of information provided:

  • Optical interface (e.g. SFP, CFP) temperature
  • FPGA temperature
  • PCB temperature (multiple readings from different locations)
  • Optical power (e.g. SFP, CFP)
  • Ethernet link status
  • Time synchronization status
