Thanks a lot for helping with this topic. Your reply reflects what I found when I was searching the term of “connectx” on the portal before I posted the question. But it doesn’t provide the information we are looking for.
The article “https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-network/create-vm-accelerated-networking-powershell” is general tutorial for creating accelerated net that happens to use connectx-3 as an example. The connect-3 is mentioned on this article is likely that connect-3 is the early nic that support accelerated net. The rest contents related to the accelerated networking are what we already know. Our application is already able to detect and work on connect-3,4,5.
What we want to know is whether connectx-3 has been end of live on Azure infrastructure? If yes, then we can safely drop the connectx-3 support on our application and upgrade to the newest Mellanox OFED version. If not, will there be a plan to put the connect-3 to EOF, and which instance types are still using the connect-3? With this info, we can add those instance types to the unsupported list for the newer version of our application. As you have mentioned that no documents show what instance types are still using connect-3, Is it possible to get answer for these questions from the relevant development team?
Hi Karishma, It would be great if you can help connect with the right team internally. I haven't created the support request before, and I don't know which Azure team is the right team for this issue. If you can share the portal link for creating the support request, I will check it out as well.
Hi Lin Huang ,
You can create a support request by following the steps here : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request#go-to-help--support-from-the-global-header
But you need to have a support plan for it.
If you do not have a support plan, send an email to 'AzCommunity@microsoft.com' with the Subject-Attn:Karishma . Include your Subscription Id and link to this thread, I will enable a one-time support request for you. Please let me know here once you have sent this email.
I have created a support request on Azure. Thanks a lot for your help!
Thanks for sharing the update.
