Setting switch-mode mapping on the ADM-XD4
The ADM-XD4 SP has four 10Gb/s ports, but the NP4 processor it contains has only two 10Gb/s ports. The external ports you use are important to optimize the SP for your application.
ADM–XD4 mapping mode
Ports 1 and 3 share one NP4 processor and ports 2 and 4 share the other. Performance ports sharing the same NP4 processor is far better than when forcing network data to move between NP4 processors by using one port from each, for example ports 1 and 2 or ports 3 and 4.
