I've bought pretty expensive HP server "HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 E5-2640 1P 16GB-R P420i SFF 460W PS Base Server (646902-421)"
I'm using server for HFT trading. Server cames with Xeon E5 on the board so I was expecting that I can enjoy the power of Intel Data Direct I/O technology.
However it seems that network controller "HP Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331FLR Adapter" doesn't support DDIO, because i can't find this information in the spec: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14214_div/14214_div.pdf
Am I correct that DDIO on my server is not possible because "HP Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331FLR Adapter" doesn't support it?
And if so i just wonder how is that possible that HP sells server with latest Intel CPU's with network cards that just doesn't support latest features...
