Visio by DPTPB: 10GbE / 40 GbE Switch stencil (V2)

March 15, 2017 update notes for Visio by DPTPB stencil collection.

Redesigned all existing 10GbE and 40GbE DPTPB switch shapes

  • All data now in top-level shape (Grouping Box)
  • Rear view shapes have now connection points matching rear view rack shapes
  • more info on design changes in prior post
  • easier to use/update/add shapes

 

Reorganized shapes in different order within the stencil

  • Brocade 10GbE Switch shapes
    • ICX7250
    • VDX6740
  • Cisco 10GbE Switch shapes
    • Nexus NX-5548
  • HPE 10GbE Switch shapes
    • HPE 5900
  • Brocade 40GbE Switch
    • VDX6940
  • Cisco 40GbE Switch shapes
    • Nexus NX-5624
  • HPE 40GbE Switch shapes
    • HPE 5930
  • Port placeholder shapes used as “Header” in stencil to group the shapes
    • For example Brocade Switches

2×6 port variant for 40GbE switches rear view shapes

screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-12-46-22

  • Brocade, Cisco and HPE switches
    • 2×6 Rack and 2×6 Mid variants
  • With Nutanix it is easier to use non-dual port variants of rear view switches

  • Nexus 5548
  • HPE 5900
  • Metro shapes can also be used when drawing Nutanix MetroAvailability solutions

  • Front and rear views shapes
  • Combined 1GbE / 10GbE Switch
    • typically used with small Nutanix deployments
    • Combined management/1GbE/10GbE switch
      • cost-effective solution
  • 24 x 1GbE ports
  • 8 x 10GbE ports
    • 2 used for stacking / ISL
    • 6 available for nodes
  • Labeled with
    • 1GbE/10GbE LAN
  • Due to unique combination of 1GbE / 10GbE ports only 2×6 Rack/Mid variants of the shape available
  • Port information pre-populated to display normal Nutanix use case
    • Ports 1/1-1/24 = 1GbE
    • Ports 1/X1 – 1/X8 = 10GbE
  • Can be used with NetApp as well

HPE 10GbE switch shapes

screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-12-53-15

  • HPE 5900 48x 10GbE + 4x 40GBE switch DPTPB shapes
    • Front and Rear view shapes
    • Rear View Variants
      • 2×4
      • 2×6
      • 12d
      • each available in Rack on Mid variants
    • Metro shapes
      • 4 Node 2×4 and 12d variants
      • Can be used to document
        • NetApp MetroCluster solutions
        • Nutanix MetroAvailability solutions
  • Original Visio Shapes by VXDFX
    • Very modular shapes
    • Fans , Power supplies, Port Modules as separate shapes
    • All the ports were empty
      • Connection point on either side on the port
      • But no connection point in the middle
      • Have to use supplied sfp+ / qsfp+ modules
      • Which in turn have just one connection point in the middle
    • Little bit extra work, when moving objects around
    • Makes the shape quite “heavy”, it takes time to place when pulled from stencil
  • With Nutanix you have to use HPE DAC cables
    • No support for Nutanix DAC cables
    • Or use fiber
  • With NetApp HPE switches do not support DAC cables
    • only fiber allowed

HPE 40GbE switch shapes

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 07.16.33

  • HPE 5930 32x 40GBE QSFP+ switch
  • Original Visio Shapes by VXDFX
  • Very modular shapes
    • Fans and Power supplies as separate shapes
    • All the ports were empty
      • Connection point on either side on the port
      • Unlike 5900 this one has also one connection point in the middle
      • No need to use separate qsfp+ modules, smaller shape size, faster use
  • With Nutanix you have to use HPE DAC cables, no support for Nutanix DAC cables
    • Or use Fiber
  • With NetApp HPE switches do not support DAC cables, only fiber allowed
