I've tried looking at the hardware manual for the DCX backbone but am still struggling to find a clear answer as to what the trunk port groupings are for a FC8-48 blade.
We are currently planning the layout for our new DCXs and have found the documentation that details the which ports belong to which ASIC, but not within an ASIC which ports are able form a port group for ISL trunking.

Layout design refer to Condor 1 ASIC Blade FC4-48 Blade, but is identically to Condor 2 ASIC FC8-48 Blade.
Trunk can be created on the entire blade, however Trunk Group must be created in the same Octet Port Group.

--->>>How about Condor 3 Asic on 8510 -8 chassis, fc48 blade
Blade design FC4, FC8 and FC16-48 Blade are the same.
--->>> do you have a picture like this:
not sure if I have one. if you I'll post here.

the Layout for the FC16-48 is different to the FC4-48 and FC8-48.
The Front-End Ports 0-23 terminating on the first Condor3 ASIC and the Front-End Ports 24-47 on the second Condor3.
Please be aware of this differences if you plan to connect Initiator and Target two the same ASIC for not using the CR_Blade and obviate the Oversubscription of the FC16-48 (by max. 1,5:1).
The Port Groups are not changed. So Groups are 0-7, 8-15 and so on.

I'm new, I have a DCX 8510-8 and it has two 64 port blades as well as 4 - 48 port blades. I would like to know what the 64 port blade is. Is it a FC16-64, or a FC8-64, and how are the ASIC boundaries layed out on it? Is it a Condor 3 or 2? I cannot find anything, any documentation on it.

the 64-Port-Blade is an FC8-64, because there is no FC16-64 available.
The 48-Blade must be an FC16-48, because the FC8-48 is not supportet in DCX8510-8.
Or do you have the FC8-48E ?
