    I/OAT and NetDMA on E3-1200v3 series




      I have a few servers using Supermicro X10SLH-F/X10SLM+-F and I wondered...

      The motherboard uses Intel I210 NICs by the way.


      But still this is mostly processor related. I'm running Xeon E3-1241v3 on these.

      I would like to know if this kind of specs support NetDMA and I/OAT


      Since NetDMA needs I/OAT, basically, the question is... does the E3-1200v3 series support I/OAT?


      I have stumbled accross an Intel document : http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/g84364004_s1200v3rp_tps_r1_3.pdf


      It states under 3.3.7 and that E3-1200v3 series do not support DCA and I/OAT2


      However it really talks about I/OAT2, that is, version 2.0

      So I know my hopes are dead for DCA.


      But what about I/OAT? Not the 2.0 but just I/OAT? Is it supported by these processors?
