Overview

NVIDIA UFM-SDN Appliance Hardware User Manual Gen 2.5

Unified Fabric Manager (UFM®) is a powerful platform for managing scale-out computing environments. UFM enables data center operators to efficiently monitor and operate the entire fabric, and maximize fabric resource utilization.

UFM eliminates the complexity of fabric management, provides deep visibility into traffic and health, and optimizes application performance.

While other tools are device-oriented and involve manual processes, UFM is an automated and an application-oriented software which bridges the gap between servers, applications and fabric elements. Thus, it enables administrators to manage and optimize clusters of various sizes.

UFM-SDN Appliance is offered as a pre-installed network device, suitable for all OS environments. It uses an NVIDIA® Mellanox® ConnectX®-6 HDR 2-port adapter card, which is installed on the fabric with minimal effort.

The Serial number and MAC address of the appliance are found on the pull out tab on the top left side of the front of the appliance. The MAC address of the first management interface (eth0) can be found on the pull-tab. eth0-1 have the next consecutive addresses.
