Installing 10Gb for Lustre


Configuring 10G on systems

The card we use is the Solarflare SFC9020. Note that these instructions assume eth2. Assign IP address within a private network. We use 192.168.101.xxx. We use a scheme where:
  • The MDS is 192.168.101.10
  • The OSSes are 192.168.101.11 - 192.168.101.99
  • and clients are 192.168.101.101 - 192.168.101.255

Create ifconfig file
edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth2
DEVICE=eth2
HWADDR=<hardware_address>
BOOTPROTO=static
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=<IP Address>
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
MTU=9000
Add this address to zia:/var/yp/etc/hosts for recordkeeping
