balloon: try harder to balloon up under memory pressure.

Currently if the balloon driver is unable to increase the guest's
reservation it assumes the failure was due to reaching its full
allocation, gives up on the ballooning operation and records the limit
it reached as the "hard limit". The driver will not try again until
the target is set again (even to the same value).

However it is possible that ballooning has in fact failed due to
memory pressure in the host and therefore it is desirable to keep
attempting to reach the target in case memory becomes available. The
most likely scenario is that some guests are ballooning down while
others are ballooning up and therefore there is temporary memory
pressure while things stabilise. You would not expect a well behaved
toolstack to ask a domain to balloon to more than its allocation nor
would you expect it to deliberately over-commit memory by setting
balloon targets which exceed the total host memory.

This patch drops the concept of a hard limit and causes the balloon
driver to retry increasing the reservation on a timer in the same
manner as when decreasing the reservation.

Also if we partially succeed in increasing the reservation
(i.e. receive less pages than we asked for) then we may as well keep
those pages rather than returning them to Xen.

17 INTRODUCTION TO ARCNET
18 ----------------------
20 ARCnet is a network type which works in a way similar to popular Ethernet
21 networks but which is also different in some very important ways.
23 First of all, you can get ARCnet cards in at least two speeds: 2.5 Mbps
24 (slower than Ethernet) and 100 Mbps (faster than normal Ethernet). In fact,
25 there are others as well, but these are less common. The different hardware
26 types, as far as I'm aware, are not compatible and so you cannot wire a
27 100 Mbps card to a 2.5 Mbps card, and so on. From what I hear, my driver does
28 work with 100 Mbps cards, but I haven't been able to verify this myself,
29 since I only have the 2.5 Mbps variety. It is probably not going to saturate
30 your 100 Mbps card. Stop complaining. :)
32 You also cannot connect an ARCnet card to any kind of Ethernet card and
33 expect it to work.
35 There are two "types" of ARCnet - STAR topology and BUS topology. This
36 refers to how the cards are meant to be wired together. According to most
37 available documentation, you can only connect STAR cards to STAR cards and
38 BUS cards to BUS cards. That makes sense, right? Well, it's not quite
39 true; see below under "Cabling."
41 Once you get past these little stumbling blocks, ARCnet is actually quite a
42 well-designed standard. It uses something called "modified token passing"
43 which makes it completely incompatible with so-called "Token Ring" cards,
44 but which makes transfers much more reliable than Ethernet does. In fact,
45 ARCnet will guarantee that a packet arrives safely at the destination, and
46 even if it can't possibly be delivered properly (ie. because of a cable
47 break, or because the destination computer does not exist) it will at least
48 tell the sender about it.
50 Because of the carefully defined action of the "token", it will always make
51 a pass around the "ring" within a maximum length of time. This makes it
52 useful for realtime networks.
54 In addition, all known ARCnet cards have an (almost) identical programming
55 interface. This means that with one ARCnet driver you can support any
56 card, whereas with Ethernet each manufacturer uses what is sometimes a
57 completely different programming interface, leading to a lot of different,
58 sometimes very similar, Ethernet drivers. Of course, always using the same
59 programming interface also means that when high-performance hardware
60 facilities like PCI bus mastering DMA appear, it's hard to take advantage of
61 them. Let's not go into that.
63 One thing that makes ARCnet cards difficult to program for, however, is the
64 limit on their packet sizes; standard ARCnet can only send packets that are
65 up to 508 bytes in length. This is smaller than the Internet "bare minimum"
66 of 576 bytes, let alone the Ethernet MTU of 1500. To compensate, an extra
67 level of encapsulation is defined by RFC1201, which I call "packet
68 splitting," that allows "virtual packets" to grow as large as 64K each,
69 although they are generally kept down to the Ethernet-style 1500 bytes.
71 For more information on the advantages and disadvantages (mostly the
72 advantages) of ARCnet networks, you might try the "ARCnet Trade Association"

77 CABLING ARCNET NETWORKS
78 -----------------------
80 This section was rewritten by
81 Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>
82 using information from several people, including:
83 Avery Pennraun <apenwarr@worldvisions.ca>
84 Stephen A. Wood <saw@hallc1.cebaf.gov>
85 John Paul Morrison <jmorriso@bogomips.ee.ubc.ca>
86 Joachim Koenig <jojo@repas.de>
87 and Avery touched it up a bit, at Vojtech's request.
89 ARCnet (the classic 2.5 Mbps version) can be connected by two different
90 types of cabling: coax and twisted pair. The other ARCnet-type networks
91 (100 Mbps TCNS and 320 kbps - 32 Mbps ARCnet Plus) use different types of
92 cabling (Type1, Fiber, C1, C4, C5).
94 For a coax network, you "should" use 93 Ohm RG-62 cable. But other cables
95 also work fine, because ARCnet is a very stable network. I personally use 75
96 Ohm TV antenna cable.
98 Cards for coax cabling are shipped in two different variants: for BUS and
99 STAR network topologies. They are mostly the same. The only difference
100 lies in the hybrid chip installed. BUS cards use high impedance output,
101 while STAR use low impedance. Low impedance card (STAR) is electrically
102 equal to a high impedance one with a terminator installed.
104 Usually, the ARCnet networks are built up from STAR cards and hubs. There
105 are two types of hubs - active and passive. Passive hubs are small boxes
106 with four BNC connectors containing four 47 Ohm resistors:
108 | | wires
109 R + junction
110 -R-+-R- R 47 Ohm resistors
111 R
112 |
114 The shielding is connected together. Active hubs are much more complicated;
115 they are powered and contain electronics to amplify the signal and send it
116 to other segments of the net. They usually have eight connectors. Active
117 hubs come in two variants - dumb and smart. The dumb variant just
118 amplifies, but the smart one decodes to digital and encodes back all packets
119 coming through. This is much better if you have several hubs in the net,
120 since many dumb active hubs may worsen the signal quality.
122 And now to the cabling. What you can connect together:
124 1. A card to a card. This is the simplest way of creating a 2-computer
125 network.
127 2. A card to a passive hub. Remember that all unused connectors on the hub
128 must be properly terminated with 93 Ohm (or something else if you don't
129 have the right ones) terminators.
130 (Avery's note: oops, I didn't know that. Mine (TV cable) works
131 anyway, though.)
133 3. A card to an active hub. Here is no need to terminate the unused
134 connectors except some kind of aesthetic feeling. But, there may not be
135 more than eleven active hubs between any two computers. That of course
136 doesn't limit the number of active hubs on the network.
138 4. An active hub to another.
140 5. An active hub to passive hub.
142 Remember, that you can not connect two passive hubs together. The power loss
143 implied by such a connection is too high for the net to operate reliably.
145 An example of a typical ARCnet network:
147 R S - STAR type card
148 S------H--------A-------S R - Terminator
149 | | H - Hub
150 | | A - Active hub
151 | S----H----S
152 S |
153 |
154 S
156 The BUS topology is very similar to the one used by Ethernet. The only
157 difference is in cable and terminators: they should be 93 Ohm. Ethernet
158 uses 50 Ohm impedance. You use T connectors to put the computers on a single
159 line of cable, the bus. You have to put terminators at both ends of the
160 cable. A typical BUS ARCnet network looks like:
162 RT----T------T------T------T------TR
163 B B B B B B
165 B - BUS type card
166 R - Terminator
167 T - T connector
169 But that is not all! The two types can be connected together. According to
170 the official documentation the only way of connecting them is using an active
171 hub:
173 A------T------T------TR
174 | B B B
175 S---H---S
176 |
177 S
179 The official docs also state that you can use STAR cards at the ends of
180 BUS network in place of a BUS card and a terminator:
182 S------T------T------S
183 B B
185 But, according to my own experiments, you can simply hang a BUS type card
186 anywhere in middle of a cable in a STAR topology network. And more - you
187 can use the bus card in place of any star card if you use a terminator. Then
188 you can build very complicated networks fulfilling all your needs! An
189 example:
191 S
192 |
193 RT------T-------T------H------S
194 B B B |
195 | R
196 S------A------T-------T-------A-------H------TR
197 | B B | | B
198 | S BT |
199 | | | S----A-----S
200 S------H---A----S | |
201 | | S------T----H---S |
202 S S B R S
204 A basically different cabling scheme is used with Twisted Pair cabling. Each
205 of the TP cards has two RJ (phone-cord style) connectors. The cards are
206 then daisy-chained together using a cable connecting every two neighboring
207 cards. The ends are terminated with RJ 93 Ohm terminators which plug into
208 the empty connectors of cards on the ends of the chain. An example:
210 ___________ ___________
211 _R_|_ _|_|_ _|_R_
212 | | | | | |
213 |Card | |Card | |Card |
214 |_____| |_____| |_____|
217 There are also hubs for the TP topology. There is nothing difficult
218 involved in using them; you just connect a TP chain to a hub on any end or
219 even at both. This way you can create almost any network configuration.
220 The maximum of 11 hubs between any two computers on the net applies here as
221 well. An example:
223 RP-------P--------P--------H-----P------P-----PR
224 |
225 RP-----H--------P--------H-----P------PR
226 | |
227 PR PR
229 R - RJ Terminator
230 P - TP Card
231 H - TP Hub
233 Like any network, ARCnet has a limited cable length. These are the maximum
234 cable lengths between two active ends (an active end being an active hub or
235 a STAR card).
237 RG-62 93 Ohm up to 650 m
238 RG-59/U 75 Ohm up to 457 m
239 RG-11/U 75 Ohm up to 533 m
240 IBM Type 1 150 Ohm up to 200 m
241 IBM Type 3 100 Ohm up to 100 m
243 The maximum length of all cables connected to a passive hub is limited to 65
244 meters for RG-62 cabling; less for others. You can see that using passive
245 hubs in a large network is a bad idea. The maximum length of a single "BUS
246 Trunk" is about 300 meters for RG-62. The maximum distance between the two
247 most distant points of the net is limited to 3000 meters. The maximum length
248 of a TP cable between two cards/hubs is 650 meters.
251 SETTING THE JUMPERS
252 -------------------
254 All ARCnet cards should have a total of four or five different settings:
256 - the I/O address: this is the "port" your ARCnet card is on. Probed
257 values in the Linux ARCnet driver are only from 0x200 through 0x3F0. (If
258 your card has additional ones, which is possible, please tell me.) This
259 should not be the same as any other device on your system. According to
260 a doc I got from Novell, MS Windows prefers values of 0x300 or more,
261 eating net connections on my system (at least) otherwise. My guess is
262 this may be because, if your card is at 0x2E0, probing for a serial port
263 at 0x2E8 will reset the card and probably mess things up royally.
264 - Avery's favourite: 0x300.
266 - the IRQ: on 8-bit cards, it might be 2 (9), 3, 4, 5, or 7.
267 on 16-bit cards, it might be 2 (9), 3, 4, 5, 7, or 10-15.
269 Make sure this is different from any other card on your system. Note
270 that IRQ2 is the same as IRQ9, as far as Linux is concerned. You can
271 "cat /proc/interrupts" for a somewhat complete list of which ones are in
272 use at any given time. Here is a list of common usages from Vojtech
273 Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>:
274 ("Not on bus" means there is no way for a card to generate this
275 interrupt)
276 IRQ 0 - Timer 0 (Not on bus)
277 IRQ 1 - Keyboard (Not on bus)
278 IRQ 2 - IRQ Controller 2 (Not on bus, nor does interrupt the CPU)
279 IRQ 3 - COM2
280 IRQ 4 - COM1
281 IRQ 5 - FREE (LPT2 if you have it; sometimes COM3; maybe PLIP)
282 IRQ 6 - Floppy disk controller
283 IRQ 7 - FREE (LPT1 if you don't use the polling driver; PLIP)
284 IRQ 8 - Realtime Clock Interrupt (Not on bus)
285 IRQ 9 - FREE (VGA vertical sync interrupt if enabled)
286 IRQ 10 - FREE
287 IRQ 11 - FREE
288 IRQ 12 - FREE
289 IRQ 13 - Numeric Coprocessor (Not on bus)
290 IRQ 14 - Fixed Disk Controller
291 IRQ 15 - FREE (Fixed Disk Controller 2 if you have it)
293 Note: IRQ 9 is used on some video cards for the "vertical retrace"
294 interrupt. This interrupt would have been handy for things like
295 video games, as it occurs exactly once per screen refresh, but
296 unfortunately IBM cancelled this feature starting with the original
297 VGA and thus many VGA/SVGA cards do not support it. For this
298 reason, no modern software uses this interrupt and it can almost
299 always be safely disabled, if your video card supports it at all.
301 If your card for some reason CANNOT disable this IRQ (usually there
302 is a jumper), one solution would be to clip the printed circuit
303 contact on the board: it's the fourth contact from the left on the
304 back side. I take no responsibility if you try this.
306 - Avery's favourite: IRQ2 (actually IRQ9). Watch that VGA, though.
308 - the memory address: Unlike most cards, ARCnets use "shared memory" for
309 copying buffers around. Make SURE it doesn't conflict with any other
310 used memory in your system!
311 A0000 - VGA graphics memory (ok if you don't have VGA)
312 B0000 - Monochrome text mode
313 C0000 \ One of these is your VGA BIOS - usually C0000.
314 E0000 /
315 F0000 - System BIOS
317 Anything less than 0xA0000 is, well, a BAD idea since it isn't above
318 640k.
319 - Avery's favourite: 0xD0000
321 - the station address: Every ARCnet card has its own "unique" network
322 address from 0 to 255. Unlike Ethernet, you can set this address
323 yourself with a jumper or switch (or on some cards, with special
324 software). Since it's only 8 bits, you can only have 254 ARCnet cards
325 on a network. DON'T use 0 or 255, since these are reserved (although
326 neat stuff will probably happen if you DO use them). By the way, if you
327 haven't already guessed, don't set this the same as any other ARCnet on
328 your network!
329 - Avery's favourite: 3 and 4. Not that it matters.
331 - There may be ETS1 and ETS2 settings. These may or may not make a
332 difference on your card (many manuals call them "reserved"), but are
333 used to change the delays used when powering up a computer on the
334 network. This is only necessary when wiring VERY long range ARCnet
335 networks, on the order of 4km or so; in any case, the only real
336 requirement here is that all cards on the network with ETS1 and ETS2
337 jumpers have them in the same position. Chris Hindy <chrish@io.org>
338 sent in a chart with actual values for this:
339 ET1 ET2 Response Time Reconfiguration Time
340 --- --- ------------- --------------------
341 open open 74.7us 840us
342 open closed 283.4us 1680us
343 closed open 561.8us 1680us
344 closed closed 1118.6us 1680us
346 Make sure you set ETS1 and ETS2 to the SAME VALUE for all cards on your
347 network.
349 Also, on many cards (not mine, though) there are red and green LED's.
350 Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz> tells me this is what they mean:
351 GREEN RED Status
352 ----- --- ------
353 OFF OFF Power off
354 OFF Short flashes Cabling problems (broken cable or not
355 terminated)
356 OFF (short) ON Card init
357 ON ON Normal state - everything OK, nothing
358 happens
359 ON Long flashes Data transfer
360 ON OFF Never happens (maybe when wrong ID)
363 The following is all the specific information people have sent me about
364 their own particular ARCnet cards. It is officially a mess, and contains
365 huge amounts of duplicated information. I have no time to fix it. If you
366 want to, PLEASE DO! Just send me a 'diff -u' of all your changes.
368 The model # is listed right above specifics for that card, so you should be
369 able to use your text viewer's "search" function to find the entry you want.
370 If you don't KNOW what kind of card you have, try looking through the
371 various diagrams to see if you can tell.
373 If your model isn't listed and/or has different settings, PLEASE PLEASE
374 tell me. I had to figure mine out without the manual, and it WASN'T FUN!
376 Even if your ARCnet model isn't listed, but has the same jumpers as another
377 model that is, please e-mail me to say so.

426 cable-connector and it's for changing to star or bus topology;
427 closed: star - open: bus
428 On the PC500 are some more jumper-pins, one block labeled with RX,PDN,TXI

551 The PC130E is an enhanced version of the PC130 board, is equipped with a
552 standard BNC female connector for connection to RG-62/U coax cable.
553 Since this board is designed both for point-to-point connection in star
554 networks and for connection to bus networks, it is downwardly compatible
555 with all the other standard boards designed for coax networks (that is,
556 the PC120, PC110 and PC100 star topology boards and the PC220, PC210 and
557 PC200 bus topology boards).
559 The PC270E is an enhanced version of the PC260 board, is equipped with two
560 modular RJ11-type jacks for connection to twisted pair wiring.
561 It can be used in a star or a daisy-chained network.

606 Setting one of the switches to Off/Open means "1", On/Closed means "0".
609 Setting the Node ID
610 -------------------
612 The eight switches in group S2 are used to set the node ID.
613 These switches work in a way similar to the PC100-series cards; see that
614 entry for more information.
617 Setting the I/O Base Address
618 ----------------------------
620 The first three switches in switch group S1 are used to select one
621 of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
624 Switch | Hex I/O
625 1 2 3 | Address
626 -------|--------
627 0 0 0 | 260
628 0 0 1 | 290

632 1 0 1 | 350
633 1 1 0 | 380
634 1 1 1 | 3E0
637 Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
638 --------------------------------------------
640 The memory buffer requires 2K of a 16K block of RAM. The base of this
641 16K block can be located in any of eight positions.
642 Switches 4-6 of switch group S1 select the Base of the 16K block.
643 Within that 16K address space, the buffer may be assigned any one of four
644 positions, determined by the offset, switches 7 and 8 of group S1.

689 *) To enable the 8K Boot PROM install the jumper ROM.
690 The default is jumper ROM not installed.
693 Setting the Timeouts and Interrupt
694 ----------------------------------
696 The jumpers labeled EXT1 and EXT2 are used to determine the timeout
697 parameters. These two jumpers are normally left open.
699 To select a hardware interrupt level set one (only one!) of the jumpers
700 IRQ2, IRQ3, IRQ4, IRQ5, IRQ7. The Manufacturer's default is IRQ2.
703 Configuring the PC130E for Star or Bus Topology
704 -----------------------------------------------
706 The single jumper labeled STAR is used to configure the PC130E board for
707 star or bus topology.
708 When the jumper is installed, the board may be used in a star network, when
709 it is removed, the board can be used in a bus topology.
712 Diagnostic LEDs
713 ---------------
715 Two diagnostic LEDs are visible on the rear bracket of the board.
716 The green LED monitors the network activity: the red one shows the
717 board activity:
719 Green | Status Red | Status
720 -------|------------------- ---------|-------------------
721 on | normal activity flash/on | data transfer
722 blink | reconfiguration off | no data transfer;
723 off | defective board or | incorrect memory or
724 | node ID is zero | I/O address

732 - from Juergen Seifert <seifert@htwm.de>
735 STANDARD MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION (SMC) ARCNET-PC500/PC550 Long Board
736 =====================================================================
738 Note: There is another Version of the PC500 called Short Version, which
739 is different in hard- and software! The most important differences
740 are:
741 - The long board has no Shared memory.
742 - On the long board the selection of the interrupt is done by binary
743 coded switch, on the short board directly by jumper.
745 [Avery's note: pay special attention to that: the long board HAS NO SHARED
746 MEMORY. This means the current Linux-ARCnet driver can't use these cards.
747 I have obtained a PC500Longboard and will be doing some experiments on it in
748 the future, but don't hold your breath. Thanks again to Juergen Seifert for
749 his advice about this!]

814 Setting one of the switches to Off/Open means "1", On/Closed means "0".
817 Setting the Node ID
818 -------------------
820 The eight switches in group SW3 are used to set the node ID. Each node
821 attached to the network must have an unique node ID which must be
822 different from 0.
823 Switch 1 serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
825 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
826 These values are:
828 Switch | Value
829 -------|-------
830 1 | 1
831 2 | 2
832 3 | 4
833 4 | 8

858 Setting the I/O Base Address
859 ----------------------------
861 The first six switches in switch group SW1 are used to select one
862 of 32 possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
864 Switch | Hex I/O
865 6 5 4 3 2 1 | Address

898 1 1 1 1 1 1 | 3F0
901 Setting the Interrupt
902 ---------------------
904 Switches seven through ten of switch group SW1 are used to select the
905 interrupt level. The interrupt level is binary coded, so selections
906 from 0 to 15 would be possible, but only the following eight values will
907 be supported: 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12.
909 Switch | IRQ
910 10 9 8 7 |
911 ---------|--------
912 0 0 1 1 | 3
913 0 1 0 0 | 4
914 0 1 0 1 | 5
915 0 1 1 1 | 7
916 1 0 0 1 | 9 (=2) (default)
917 1 0 1 0 | 10
918 1 0 1 1 | 11
919 1 1 0 0 | 12
922 Setting the Timeouts
923 --------------------
925 The two jumpers JP2 (1-4) are used to determine the timeout parameters.
926 These two jumpers are normally left open.
927 Refer to the COM9026 Data Sheet for alternate configurations.
930 Configuring the PC500 for Star or Bus Topology
931 ----------------------------------------------
933 The single jumper labeled JP6 is used to configure the PC500 board for
934 star or bus topology.
935 When the jumper is installed, the board may be used in a star network, when
936 it is removed, the board can be used in a bus topology.
939 Diagnostic LEDs
940 ---------------
942 Two diagnostic LEDs are visible on the rear bracket of the board.
943 The green LED monitors the network activity: the red one shows the
944 board activity:
946 Green | Status Red | Status
947 -------|------------------- ---------|-------------------
948 on | normal activity flash/on | data transfer
949 blink | reconfiguration off | no data transfer;
950 off | defective board or | incorrect memory or
951 | node ID is zero | I/O address

957 PC710 (8-bit card)
958 ------------------
959 - from J.S. van Oosten <jvoosten@compiler.tdcnet.nl>
961 Note: this data is gathered by experimenting and looking at info of other
962 cards. However, I'm sure I got 99% of the settings right.
964 The SMC710 card resembles the PC270 card, but is much more basic (i.e. no
965 LEDs, RJ11 jacks, etc.) and 8 bit. Here's a little drawing:

986 The row of jumpers at JP1 actually consists of 8 jumpers, (sometimes
987 labelled) the same as on the PC270, from top to bottom: EXT2, EXT1, ROM,
988 IRQ7, IRQ5, IRQ4, IRQ3, IRQ2 (gee, wonder what they would do? :-) )
990 S1 and S2 perform the same function as on the PC270, only their numbers
991 are swapped (S1 is the nodeaddress, S2 sets IO- and RAM-address).
993 I know it works when connected to a PC110 type ARCnet board.

999 LCS-8830(-T) (8 and 16-bit cards)
1000 ---------------------------------
1001 - from Mathias Katzer <mkatzer@HRZ.Uni-Bielefeld.DE>
1002 - Marek Michalkiewicz <marekm@i17linuxb.ists.pwr.wroc.pl> says the
1003 LCS-8830 is slightly different from LCS-8830-T. These are 8 bit, BUS
1004 only (the JP0 jumper is hardwired), and BNC only.
1006 This is a LCS-8830-T made by SMC, I think ('SMC' only appears on one PLCC,
1007 nowhere else, not even on the few Xeroxed sheets from the manual).

1111 PDI507 (8-bit card)
1112 --------------------
1113 - from Mark Rejhon <mdrejhon@magi.com> (slight modifications by Avery)
1114 - Avery's note: I think PDI508 cards (but definitely NOT PDI508Plus cards)
1115 are mostly the same as this. PDI508Plus cards appear to be mainly
1116 software-configured.
1118 Jumpers:
1119 There is a jumper array at the bottom of the card, near the edge
1120 connector. This array is labelled J1. They control the IRQs and
1121 something else. Put only one jumper on the IRQ pins.
1123 ETS1, ETS2 are for timing on very long distance networks. See the
1124 more general information near the top of this file.
1126 There is a J2 jumper on two pins. A jumper should be put on them,
1127 since it was already there when I got the card. I don't know what
1128 this jumper is for though.
1130 There is a two-jumper array for J3. I don't know what it is for,
1131 but there were already two jumpers on it when I got the card. It's
1132 a six pin grid in a two-by-three fashion. The jumpers were
1133 configured as follows:
1135 .-------.
1136 o | o o |

1138 o | o o | in this direction ------->

1141 Carl de Billy <CARL@carainfo.com> explains J3 and J4:

1156 - If using coax cable in a bus topology the J4 jumper must be removed;
1157 place it on one pin.
1159 - If using bus topology with twisted pair wiring move the J3
1160 jumpers so they connect the middle pin and the pins closest to the RJ11
1161 Connectors. Also the J4 jumper must be removed; place it on one pin of
1162 J4 jumper for storage.
1164 - If using star topology with twisted pair wiring move the J3
1165 jumpers so they connect the middle pin and the pins closest to the RJ11
1166 connectors.
1169 DIP Switches:
1171 The DIP switches accessible on the accessible end of the card while
1172 it is installed, is used to set the ARCnet address. There are 8
1173 switches. Use an address from 1 to 254.
1175 Switch No.
1176 12345678 ARCnet address
1177 -----------------------------------------
1178 00000000 FF (Don't use this!)
1179 00000001 FE
1180 00000010 FD
1181 ....
1182 11111101 2
1183 11111110 1
1184 11111111 0 (Don't use this!)
1186 There is another array of eight DIP switches at the top of the
1187 card. There are five labelled MS0-MS4 which seem to control the
1188 memory address, and another three labelled IO0-IO2 which seem to
1189 control the base I/O address of the card.
1191 This was difficult to test by trial and error, and the I/O addresses
1192 are in a weird order. This was tested by setting the DIP switches,
1193 rebooting the computer, and attempting to load ARCETHER at various
1194 addresses (mostly between 0x200 and 0x400). The address that caused
1195 the red transmit LED to blink, is the one that I thought works.
1197 Also, the address 0x3D0 seem to have a special meaning, since the
1198 ARCETHER packet driver loaded fine, but without the red LED
1199 blinking. I don't know what 0x3D0 is for though. I recommend using
1200 an address of 0x300 since Windows may not like addresses below
1201 0x300.
1203 IO Switch No.
1204 210 I/O address
1205 -------------------------------
1206 111 0x260
1207 110 0x290
1208 101 0x2E0
1209 100 0x2F0
1210 011 0x300
1211 010 0x350
1212 001 0x380
1213 000 0x3E0
1215 The memory switches set a reserved address space of 0x1000 bytes
1216 (0x100 segment units, or 4k). For example if I set an address of
1217 0xD000, it will use up addresses 0xD000 to 0xD100.
1219 The memory switches were tested by booting using QEMM386 stealth,
1220 and using LOADHI to see what address automatically became excluded
1221 from the upper memory regions, and then attempting to load ARCETHER
1222 using these addresses.
1224 I recommend using an ARCnet memory address of 0xD000, and putting
1225 the EMS page frame at 0xC000 while using QEMM stealth mode. That
1226 way, you get contiguous high memory from 0xD100 almost all the way
1227 the end of the megabyte.
1229 Memory Switch 0 (MS0) didn't seem to work properly when set to OFF
1230 on my card. It could be malfunctioning on my card. Experiment with
1231 it ON first, and if it doesn't work, set it to OFF. (It may be a
1232 modifier for the 0x200 bit?)
1234 MS Switch No.
1235 43210 Memory address
1236 --------------------------------
1237 00001 0xE100 (guessed - was not detected by QEMM)
1238 00011 0xE000 (guessed - was not detected by QEMM)
1239 00101 0xDD00

1241 01001 0xD900
1242 01011 0xD800
1243 01101 0xD500
1244 01111 0xD400

1334 Setting the Node ID
1335 -------------------
1337 The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached
1338 to the network must have an unique node ID which must be different from 0.
1339 Switch 1 (ID0) serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
1341 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
1342 These values are:
1344 Switch | Label | Value
1345 -------|-------|-------
1346 1 | ID0 | 1

1374 Setting the I/O Base Address
1375 ----------------------------
1377 The last three switches in switch block SW1 are used to select one
1378 of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
1381 Switch | Hex I/O
1382 6 7 8 | Address
1383 ------------|--------
1384 ON ON ON | 260
1385 OFF ON ON | 290
1386 ON OFF ON | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
1387 OFF OFF ON | 2F0
1388 ON ON OFF | 300
1389 OFF ON OFF | 350
1390 ON OFF OFF | 380
1391 OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
1394 Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
1395 --------------------------------------------
1397 The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
1398 located in any of eight positions. The address of the Boot Prom is
1399 memory base + 8K or memory base + 0x2000.
1400 Switches 1-5 of switch block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
1402 Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
1403 1 2 3 4 5 | Address | Address *)
1404 --------------------|---------|-----------
1405 ON ON ON ON ON | C0000 | C2000
1406 ON ON OFF ON ON | C4000 | C6000
1407 ON ON ON OFF ON | CC000 | CE000
1408 ON ON OFF OFF ON | D0000 | D2000 (Manufacturer's default)
1409 ON ON ON ON OFF | D4000 | D6000
1410 ON ON OFF ON OFF | D8000 | DA000
1411 ON ON ON OFF OFF | DC000 | DE000
1412 ON ON OFF OFF OFF | E0000 | E2000
1414 *) To enable the Boot ROM install the jumper JP1
1416 Note: Since the switches 1 and 2 are always set to ON it may be possible
1417 that they can be used to add an offset of 2K, 4K or 6K to the base
1418 address, but this feature is not documented in the manual and I
1419 haven't tested it yet.
1422 Setting the Interrupt Line
1423 --------------------------
1425 To select a hardware interrupt level install one (only one!) of the jumpers
1426 JP2, JP3, JP4, JP5, JP6. JP2 is the default.
1428 Jumper | IRQ

1706 It seems that the bits are considered in reverse order. Also, you must
1707 observe that some of those addresses are unusual and I didn't probe them; I
1708 used a memory dump in DOS to identify them. For the 00000 configuration and
1709 some others that I didn't write here the card seems to conflict with the
1710 video card (an S3 GENDAC). I leave the full decoding of those addresses to

1808 Setting the Node ID
1809 -------------------
1811 The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached
1812 to the network must have an unique node ID which must not be 0.
1813 Switch 1 (ID0) serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
1815 Setting one of the switches to OFF means "1", ON means "0".
1817 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
1818 These values are:
1820 Switch | Value
1821 -------|-------
1822 1 | 1
1823 2 | 2
1824 3 | 4
1825 4 | 8
1826 5 | 16
1827 6 | 32
1828 7 | 64
1829 8 | 128
1831 Don't set this to 0 or 255; these values are reserved.
1834 Setting the I/O Base Address
1835 ----------------------------
1837 The switches 1 to 6 of switch block SW1 are used to select one
1838 of 32 possible I/O Base addresses using the following tables
1840 | Hex
1841 Switch | Value
1842 -------|-------
1843 1 | 200
1844 2 | 100
1845 3 | 80
1846 4 | 40
1847 5 | 20
1848 6 | 10
1850 The I/O address is sum of all switches set to "1". Remember that
1851 the I/O address space bellow 0x200 is RESERVED for mainboard, so
1852 switch 1 should be ALWAYS SET TO OFF.
1855 Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
1856 --------------------------------------------
1858 The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
1859 located in any of sixteen positions. However, the addresses below
1860 A0000 are likely to cause system hang because there's main RAM.
1862 Jumpers 7-10 of switch block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
1864 Switch | Hex RAM
1865 7 8 9 10 | Address
1866 ----------------|---------
1867 OFF OFF OFF OFF | F0000 (conflicts with main BIOS)
1868 OFF OFF OFF ON | E0000
1869 OFF OFF ON OFF | D0000
1870 OFF OFF ON ON | C0000 (conflicts with video BIOS)
1871 OFF ON OFF OFF | B0000 (conflicts with mono video)
1872 OFF ON OFF ON | A0000 (conflicts with graphics)
1875 Setting the Interrupt Line
1876 --------------------------
1878 Jumpers 1-5 of the jumper block J1 control the IRQ level. ON means
1879 shorted, OFF means open.
1881 Jumper | IRQ
1882 1 2 3 4 5 |
1883 ----------------------------
1884 ON OFF OFF OFF OFF | 7
1885 OFF ON OFF OFF OFF | 5
1886 OFF OFF ON OFF OFF | 4
1887 OFF OFF OFF ON OFF | 3
1888 OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 2
1891 Unknown jumpers & sockets
1892 -------------------------
1894 I know nothing about these. I just guess that J16&J17 are timeout
1895 jumpers and maybe one of J18-J21 selects ROM. Also J6-J10 and
1896 J11-J15 are connecting IRQ2-7 to some pins on the UFSs. I can't
1897 guess the purpose.

2253 There is a DIP-switch with 8 switches, used to set the shared memory address
2254 to be used. The first 6 switches set the address, the 7th doesn't have any
2255 function, and the 8th switch is used to select "compatible" or "enhanced".
2256 When I got my two cards, one of them had this switch set to "enhanced". That
2257 card didn't work at all, it wasn't even recognized by the driver. The other
2258 card had this switch set to "compatible" and it behaved absolutely normally. I
2259 guess that the switch on one of the cards, must have been changed accidentally
2260 when the card was taken out of its former host. The question remains
2261 unanswered, what is the purpose of the "enhanced" position?
2263 [Avery's note: "enhanced" probably either disables shared memory (use IO
2264 ports instead) or disables IO ports (use memory addresses instead). This
2265 varies by the type of card involved. I fail to see how either of these
2266 enhance anything. Send me more detailed information about this mode, or
2267 just use "compatible" mode instead.]

2275 - from Robert Michael Best <rmb117@cs.usask.ca>
2277 [Avery's note: these don't work with my driver for some reason. These cards
2278 SEEM to have settings similar to the PDI508Plus, which is
2279 software-configured and doesn't work with my driver either. The "Waterloo
2280 chip" is a boot PROM, probably designed specifically for the University of
2281 Waterloo. If you have any further information about this card, please
2282 e-mail me.]
2284 The probe has not been able to detect the card on any of the J2 settings,
2285 and I tried them again with the "Waterloo" chip removed.

2381 NONAME 8-BIT ARCNET
2382 ===================
2384 I have named this ARCnet card "NONAME", since there is no name of any
2385 manufacturer on the Installation manual nor on the shipping box. The only
2386 hint to the existence of a manufacturer at all is written in copper,
2387 it is "Made in Taiwan"

2430 indicating the topology of the card
2432 Setting one of the switches to Off means "1", On means "0".
2435 Setting the Node ID
2436 -------------------
2438 The eight switches in group SW1 are used to set the node ID.
2439 Each node attached to the network must have an unique node ID which
2440 must be different from 0.
2441 Switch 8 serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
2443 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
2444 These values are:
2446 Switch | Value
2447 -------|-------
2448 8 | 1
2449 7 | 2
2450 6 | 4
2451 5 | 8

2476 Setting the I/O Base Address
2477 ----------------------------
2479 The first three switches in switch group SW2 are used to select one
2480 of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
2482 Switch | Hex I/O
2483 1 2 3 | Address
2484 ------------|--------
2485 ON ON ON | 260
2486 ON ON OFF | 290
2487 ON OFF ON | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
2488 ON OFF OFF | 2F0
2489 OFF ON ON | 300
2490 OFF ON OFF | 350
2491 OFF OFF ON | 380
2492 OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
2495 Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
2496 --------------------------------------------
2498 The memory buffer requires 2K of a 16K block of RAM. The base of this
2499 16K block can be located in any of eight positions.
2500 Switches 4-6 of switch group SW2 select the Base of the 16K block.
2501 Within that 16K address space, the buffer may be assigned any one of four
2502 positions, determined by the offset, switches 7 and 8 of group SW2.

2547 *) To enable the 8K Boot PROM install the jumper ROM.
2548 The default is jumper ROM not installed.
2551 Setting Interrupt Request Lines (IRQ)
2552 -------------------------------------
2554 To select a hardware interrupt level set one (only one!) of the jumpers
2555 IRQ2, IRQ3, IRQ4, IRQ5 or IRQ7. The manufacturer's default is IRQ2.
2558 Setting the Timeouts
2559 --------------------
2561 The two jumpers labeled ET1 and ET2 are used to determine the timeout
2562 parameters (response and reconfiguration time). Every node in a network
2563 must be set to the same timeout values.
2565 ET1 ET2 | Response Time (us) | Reconfiguration Time (ms)
2566 --------|--------------------|--------------------------
2567 Off Off | 78 | 840 (Default)
2568 Off On | 285 | 1680
2569 On Off | 563 | 1680
2570 On On | 1130 | 1680
2572 On means jumper installed, Off means jumper not installed
2575 NONAME 16-BIT ARCNET
2576 ====================
2578 The manual of my 8-Bit NONAME ARCnet Card contains another description
2579 of a 16-Bit Coax / Twisted Pair Card. This description is incomplete,
2580 because there are missing two pages in the manual booklet. (The table
2581 of contents reports pages ... 2-9, 2-11, 2-12, 3-1, ... but inside
2582 the booklet there is a different way of counting ... 2-9, 2-10, A-1,
2583 (empty page), 3-1, ..., 3-18, A-1 (again), A-2)
2584 Also the picture of the board layout is not as good as the picture of
2585 8-Bit card, because there isn't any letter like "SW1" written to the
2586 picture.
2587 Should somebody have such a board, please feel free to complete this
2588 description or to send a mail to me!

2793 8 : ROM Enable
2794 JP1 Led connector
2795 BNC Coax connector
2797 Although the jumpers SW1 and SW3 are marked SW, not JP, they are jumpers, not
2798 switches.
2800 Setting the jumpers to ON means connecting the upper two pins, off the bottom
2801 two - or - in case of IRQ setting, connecting none of them at all.
2803 Setting the Node ID
2804 -------------------
2806 The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached
2807 to the network must have an unique node ID which must not be 0.
2808 Switch 1 (ID0) serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
2810 Setting one of the switches to Off means "1", On means "0".
2812 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
2813 These values are:
2815 Switch | Label | Value
2816 -------|-------|-------
2817 1 | ID0 | 1
2818 2 | ID1 | 2
2819 3 | ID2 | 4
2820 4 | ID3 | 8
2821 5 | ID4 | 16
2822 6 | ID5 | 32
2823 7 | ID6 | 64
2824 8 | ID7 | 128
2826 Some Examples:
2828 Switch | Hex | Decimal
2829 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 | Node ID | Node ID
2830 ----------------|---------|---------
2831 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 | not allowed
2832 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 | 1 | 1

2841 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 | FE | 254
2842 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 | FF | 255
2845 Setting the I/O Base Address
2846 ----------------------------
2848 The last three switches in switch block SW1 are used to select one
2849 of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
2852 Switch | Hex I/O
2853 6 7 8 | Address
2854 ------------|--------
2855 ON ON ON | 260
2856 OFF ON ON | 290
2857 ON OFF ON | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
2858 OFF OFF ON | 2F0
2859 ON ON OFF | 300
2860 OFF ON OFF | 350
2861 ON OFF OFF | 380
2862 OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
2865 Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
2866 --------------------------------------------
2868 The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
2869 located in any of eight positions. The address of the Boot Prom is
2870 memory base + 0x2000.
2871 Jumpers 3-5 of jumper block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
2873 Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
2874 1 2 3 4 5 | Address | Address *)
2875 --------------------|---------|-----------
2876 ON ON ON ON ON | C0000 | C2000
2877 ON ON OFF ON ON | C4000 | C6000
2878 ON ON ON OFF ON | CC000 | CE000
2879 ON ON OFF OFF ON | D0000 | D2000 (Manufacturer's default)
2880 ON ON ON ON OFF | D4000 | D6000
2881 ON ON OFF ON OFF | D8000 | DA000
2882 ON ON ON OFF OFF | DC000 | DE000
2883 ON ON OFF OFF OFF | E0000 | E2000
2885 *) To enable the Boot ROM set the jumper 8 of jumper block SW3 to position ON.
2887 The jumpers 1 and 2 probably add 0x0800, 0x1000 and 0x1800 to RAM adders.
2889 Setting the Interrupt Line
2890 --------------------------
2892 Jumpers 1-5 of the jumper block SW3 control the IRQ level.
2894 Jumper | IRQ
2895 1 2 3 4 5 |
2896 ----------------------------
2897 ON OFF OFF OFF OFF | 2
2898 OFF ON OFF OFF OFF | 3
2899 OFF OFF ON OFF OFF | 4
2900 OFF OFF OFF ON OFF | 5
2901 OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 7
2904 Setting the Timeout Parameters
2905 ------------------------------
2907 The jumpers 6-7 of the jumper block SW3 are used to determine the timeout
2908 parameters. These two jumpers are normally left in the OFF position.

2963 SW1: Timeouts, Interrupt and ROM
2964 ---------------------------------
2966 To select a hardware interrupt level set one (only one!) of the dip switches
2967 up (on) SW1...(switches 1-5)
2968 IRQ3, IRQ4, IRQ5, IRQ7, IRQ2. The Manufacturer's default is IRQ2.
2970 The switches on SW1 labeled EXT1 (switch 6) and EXT2 (switch 7)
2971 are used to determine the timeout parameters. These two dip switches
2972 are normally left off (down).
2974 To enable the 8K Boot PROM position SW1 switch 8 on (UP) labeled ROM.
2975 The default is jumper ROM not installed.
2978 Setting the I/O Base Address
2979 ----------------------------
2981 The last three switches in switch group SW2 are used to select one
2982 of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
2985 Switch | Hex I/O
2986 4 5 6 | Address
2987 -------|--------
2988 0 0 0 | 260
2989 0 0 1 | 290
2990 0 1 0 | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
2991 0 1 1 | 2F0
2992 1 0 0 | 300
2993 1 0 1 | 350
2994 1 1 0 | 380
2995 1 1 1 | 3E0
2998 Setting the Base Memory Address (RAM & ROM)
2999 -------------------------------------------
3001 The memory buffer requires 2K of a 16K block of RAM. The base of this
3002 16K block can be located in any of eight positions.
3003 Switches 1-3 of switch group SW2 select the Base of the 16K block.
3004 (0 = DOWN, 1 = UP)
3005 I could, however, only verify two settings...

3017 1 1 1 | ????? | ?????
3020 Setting the Node ID
3021 -------------------
3023 The eight switches in group SW3 are used to set the node ID.
3024 Each node attached to the network must have an unique node ID which
3025 must be different from 0.
3026 Switch 1 serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
3027 switches in the DOWN position are OFF (0) and in the UP position are ON (1)
3029 The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
3030 These values are:
3031 Switch | Value
3032 -------|-------
3033 1 | 1
3034 2 | 2
3035 3 | 4
3036 4 | 8
3037 5 | 16
3038 6 | 32
3039 7 | 64
3040 8 | 128
