Avalanche: Why my 10G ports are not green on the MX card when I set it in performance mode?
When the MX card is set in Functional mode the number CPU cores are allocated evenly amount the all ports. Therefore all the ports are enabled and available.
When the MX card is set in Performance mode, half of the ports are disabled; the cores are re-allocated to the active ports, giving these ports more CPU power.
MX cards / 10G ports screen captures the functional mode with 8 ports available; performance mode has 4 ports (with more cores) available on a MX-10G-S8.
