Important: These network adapters are not supported by versions 3.4.0 and later of sfptpd.

The Flareon™ SFN7000 series adapters combine ultra-low latency with precision time synchronization and hardware timestamping of all received network packets on either physical port of the adapter.

Ports

PTP packets can be received on any adapter port and ports can be configured in an active/backup failover configuration. LACP bonding is supported. Hardware timestamping is done on all ports.

PTP Activation Key

The SFN7322F adapter is supplied as a factory-ready PTP adapter.

Other SFN7000 series adapters can be upgraded with an AppFlex™ Technology PTP/HW activation key to support PTP and hardware timestamping of all received packets.

For more details of the AppFlex Technology activation keys refer to the Solarflare Server Adapter User Guide (SF-103837-CD).
