Understanding Port Ranges and System Modes

 

QFX Series devices and EX4600 switches can support different port ranges depending on the device, media type of the interface, the software that is running on the device, and the system mode.

This topic describes:

Port Ranges for Different Media Types

The following media types support the following port ranges:

  • On a QFX3500 device:

    • The valid port range for a Fibre Channel (fc) interface is 0 through 5 and 42 through 47 on PIC 0, with a total of 12 available Fibre Channel ports.

      Note

      Fibre Channel ports are not supported on QFX3500, QFX3600, and QFX5100 switches running Enhanced Layer 2 software.

    • The valid port range for a Gigabit Ethernet (ge) interface is 6 through 41 on PIC 0 because the ports between 0 and 5 and 42 and 47 are reserved as Fibre Channel ports. The total number of available Gigabit Ethernet ports is 36, because 12 of the remaining 48 ports are reserved for Fibre Channel and 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Fibre Channel ports cannot be configured as Gigabit Ethernet ports.

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet (xe) interface is 0 through 47 on PIC 0. The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet (xe) interface is 0 through 15 on PIC 1. The total number of available 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports is 64.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gigabit data plane uplink interface is 0 through 3 on PIC 1

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 3 on PIC 2. There are four available ports.

  • On a QFX3600 Node device:

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 8 through 63 on PIC 0. There are 56 available ports.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 2 through 15 on PIC 1. There are 14 available ports.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gigabit data plane uplink interface is 0 through 7 on PIC 1. There are eight available ports.

    See Table 3 for physical port to logical port mappings.

  • On a QFX3600 switch running Enhanced Layer 2 Software:

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 63 on PIC 0. There are 64 available ports.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 15 on PIC 0. There are 16 available ports.

    See Table 4 for physical port to logical port mappings.

  • On QFX5100-48S and QFX5100-48T switches running Enhanced Layer 2 Software:

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 47 on PIC 0. There are 48 available ports. When you channelize the 6 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports on 0 through 5 on PIC 1, there are 72 available ports.

      Note

      On PIC 1, ports 0 and 1 are reserved for fte ports. You cannot convert these fte ports to xe or xle ports.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gbps QSFP+ port is 0 through 5 on PIC 1. There are six available ports.

    See Table 6 for physical port to logical port mappings.

  • On EX4600 switches running Enhanced Layer 2 Software:

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 23 on PIC 0. There are 24 available ports. When you channelize the 4 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports on 24 through 27 on PIC 0. There are 40 available ports.

    See Table 6 for physical port to logical port mappings.

  • On QFX5100-48S and QFX5100-48T switches running a QFabric software package:

    • The valid port range for a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface is 0 through 47 on PIC 0. There are 48 available ports.

    • The valid port range for a 40-Gbps QSFP+ port is 0 through 5 on PIC 1. There are six available ports.

      Note

      On PIC 1, ports 0 and 1 are reserved for fte ports. You cannot convert these fte ports to xe or xle ports.

    See Table 7 for physical port to logical port mappings.

  • For QFX5100-24Q and QFX5100-96S switches running Enhanced Layer 2 Software, see Table 8 for physical port to logical port mappings for different system modes.

Supported System Modes

Note

There are restrictions on the ports you can channelize on the QFX5100-24Q and QFX5100-96S switches depending on the system mode you configure. If you try to channelize ports that are restricted, the configuration is ignored.

The following system modes are available on the QFX5100-24Q switch:

  • Default mode

  • Mode-104-port

  • Flexi-PIC mode

  • Non-oversubscribed mode

See Table 8 for more information regarding the supported system modes for your switch.

The following system modes are available on the QFX5100-96S switch:

  • Default-mode

  • Non-oversubscribed mode

See Table 8 for more information regarding the supported system modes for your switch.

QFX5100-24Q

Supported

You do not need to configure the switch to be in this mode. On PIC 0, you can channelize all 24 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports. On PIC 1 and PIC 2, the 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports in the expansion modules are supported but cannot be channelized. In this mode, you can have one of two port combinations: 32 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports, or 96 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports plus 8 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports.

Supported

On PIC 0, all 24 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports are channelized by default, which provides 96 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports contained in an expansion module on PIC 1 are supported. On PIC 1, ports 0 and 2 are channelized by default, and ports 1 and 3 are disabled. If 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports contained in an expansion module are detected on PIC 2, they are ignored.

Supported

On PIC 0, the first four ports (ports 0 through 3) cannot be channelized. 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports contained in expansion modules on PIC 1 and PIC 2 are supported but cannot be channelized.

Supported

All 24 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports on PIC 0 can be channelized to 96 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports contained in the expansion modules on PIC 1 and PIC 2 are not supported and cannot be channelized. There is no packet loss for packets of any size in this mode.

QFX5100-96S

Supported

You do not need to configure the switch to be in this mode. On PIC 0, all 96 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports are supported. You can only channelize the 40-GbpsQSFP+ interfaces to 10-Gibabit Ethernet interfaces on ports 96 and 100. When you channelize the interfaces on ports 96 and 100, ports 97, 98, 99, 101, 102 and 103 are disabled.

Not supported

Not supported

Supported

On PIC 0, all 96 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports are supported. However, the eight 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports are not supported and cannot be channelized. There is no packet loss for packets of any size in this mode.
