Intel XL710

Hello,

I just wanted to inquire about the Intel XL710 40GbE Network Adapter.

I have been running some Speed Test using Two Servers and a Cisco Nexus

3064 40GbE Switch and Cisco Nexus 3132 40GbE Switch.

The Intel XL710 40GbE Network Adapter works with this set up but I am

experiencing slow speeds.

Can you please let me know what the optimal way to connect this Intel XL710

40GbE Network Adapter so that we can experience 40GbE Speeds?

The speeds I have been getting so far are pretty slow and I know this Intel

XL710 40GbE Network Adapter is much faster.

Thanks for your help in advance.
