Refer to the right side of figure 3-2 in redp4340 (+IVE Adapter Technical Overview and Introduction+). A screen shot is attached for your convenience. The FC 5639 has 4 physical ports, 2 per port group. Consider the case where the MCS value is 1, which means there are 16 LHEA ports per port group (Port group 2 case in the figure).
Does traffic from any LHEA port in port group 2 flow through either physical port in the port group? Or are half the ports in the port group assigned to one physical port and half assigned to the other? The latter case is the way the figure is drawn, but I am not sure whether that is just an example or is a rule.

Re: IVE: How are LHEA ports mapped to physical ports?2009-01-29T03:14:03ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.When MCS is 1, there are total 16 logical ports are available between 2 physical ports of that port group. The 16 logical ports does not have to be equally divided between two physical ports. One can create all 16 logical ports from one physical port and then 2nd physical port will have none left. Hope this helps.
