On Exadata X2-2, Oracle use "Sun InfiniBand Switch".
How to learn about it?
We can find out Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 Documentation and learn from them.
- On Operating System on it:
# cat /etc/redhat-release

- Verify the InfiniBand Fabric
ibdiagnet - Performs diagnostics upon the InfiniBand fabric and reports status.
ibnetdiscover - Discovers and displays the InfiniBand fabric topology and connections.
ibcheckerrors - Checks the entire InfiniBand fabric for errors.
# ibcheckerrors
## Summary: 14 nodes checked, 0 bad nodes found
## 62 ports checked, 0 ports have errors beyond threshold
