2-port Switch with Processor Interface
September 1, 2009
9.2.8 Full Duplex Flow Control
The DM9006 supports half-duplex backpressure.
The inducement is the same as full duplex mode.
When flow control is required, the DM9006 sends jam
pattern, thus forcing a collision.
The flow control ability can be set in bit 4 of
9.2.9 Partition Mode
The DM9006 provides a partition mode for each
port, see bit 6 of register 61h. The port enters
partition mode when more than 64 consecutive
collisions are occurred. In partition mode the port
continuous to transmit but it will not receive. The port
returned to normal operation mode when a good
packet is seen on the wire. The detail description of
partition mode represent following:
(1). Entering Partition State
A port will enter the Partition State when either of
the following conditions occurs:
The port detects a collision on every one of 64
consecutive re-transmit attempts to the same packet.
The port detects a single collision which occurs
for more than 512 bit times.
Transmit defer timer time out, which indicates
the transmitting packet is deferred to long.
(2). While in Partition state:
The port will continue to transmit its pending
packet, regardless of the collision detection, and will
not allow the usual Back-off Algorithm. Additional
packets pending for transmission will be transmitted,
while ignoring the internal collision indication. This
frees up the ports transmit buffers which would
otherwise be filled up at the expense of other ports
The assumption is that the partition is
connection/cable/station), thus dropping packets is a
small price to pay vs. the cost of halting the switch
due to a buffer full condition.
(3). Exiting from Partition State
The Port exits from Partition State, following the
end of a successful packet transmission.
successful packet transmission is defined as no
collisions were detected on the first 512 bits of the
9.2.10 Broadcast Storm Filtering
The DM9006 has an option to limit the traffic of
broadcast or multicast packets, to protect the switch
from lower bandwidth availability.
There are two type of broadcast storm control,
one is throttling broadcast packet only, the other
includes multicast. This feature can be set through bit
1 of register 61h.
programmed by EEPROM or register 67h, the default
setting is no broadcast storm protecting.
9.2.11 Bandwidth Control
The DM9006 supports two type of bandwidth
control for each port. One is the ingress and egress
bandwidth rate can be control separately, the other is
combined together, this function can be set through
bit 3 of register 61h. The bandwidth control is
disabled by default.
For separated bandwidth control mode, the
threshold rate is defined in register 66h. For
combined mode, it is defined in register 67h.
The behavior of bandwidth control as below:
(1).For the ingress control, if flow control function
is enabled, Pause or Jam packet will be transmitted.
The ingress packets will be dropped if flow control is
(2).For the egress control, the egress port will not
transmit any packets. On the other hand, the ingress
bandwidth of source port will be throttled that prevent
packets from forwarding.
(3).In combined mode, if the sum of ingress and
egress bandwidth over threshold, the bandwidth will
9.2.12 Port Monitoring Support
The DM9006 supports “Port Monitoring” function
on per port base, detail as below:
(1). Sniffer Port and Monitor Port
There is only one port can be selected as “sniffer
port” by register 52h, multiple ports can be set as
“receive monitor port” or “transmit monitor port” in
per-port register 65h.
All packets received on the “receive monitor port”
are send a copy to “sniffer port”. For example, port 0
is set as “receive monitor port” and port 3 (processor
port) is selected as “sniffer port”. If a packet is
received form port 0 and destined to port 1 after
forwarding decision, the DM9006 will forward it to port
1 and processor port in the end.
All packets transmitted on the “transmit monitor
