Intel Pro/1000 Server Adapter - Virtual Machine Direct Connect
1: Intel Pro/1000 Server Adapter an implementation of the PCI-SIG standard for I/O Virtualization. The physical configuration of each port is divided into multiple virtual ports. Each virtual port is assigned to an individual virtual machine directly by bypassing the virtual switch in the Hypervisor. Thereby resulting in near-native performance.
2: Integrated Intel VT Directed I/O (VT-d) to provide data protection between virtual machines by assigning separate physical address in memory to each virtual machine.
3: Watchdog timer:
Used to give an indication to the manageability firmware or external devices that the chip or the driver is not functioning
Intel Pro/1000 Server Adapter enable network manageability implementations required by IT personnel for remote control and alerting. By sharing the LAN port and providing standard interfaces to a Board Management Controller (BMC). The communication to the BMC is available Through an on-board System Management Bus (SMBus) port. The adapter provides filtering capabilities to determine which traffic is forwarded to the host
These Quad-port adapters provide high-performing, multi-port Gigabit connectivity in a multi-core platform as well as in a virtualized environment. In a multi-core platform, the adapters support different technologies such as Intel QuickData Technology, MSI-X, and Low Latency Interrupts. That help in accelerating the data across the platform, thereby improving application response times
