Abstract: NETFINITY 5000: PEER to PEER ADAPTER CARD PERFORMANCE
If a card which uses Peer-to-Peer PCI Bus Mastering is used in a Netfinity 5000 sever system, performance might be much lower than expected.
PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
It is strongly recommended that both the master and the card it is accessing are installed in the same PCI bus.
Practically this means that they should be in slots 1-4 as slot 5 is on a different bus.
If this advice is not followed, performance will be very seriously affected, and some data corruption may theoretically occur (though none has been observed in any adapters that have been tested).
