Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3 Quarterly Update 2 is now available

We are pleased to announce the availability of Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3 Quarterly Update 2 (UEK R3U2) for Oracle Linux 6. This is the second quarterly update release for UEK R3 (Version 3.8.13-35) and includes driver updates as well as a consolidation of fixes for bugs and security issues.
Some notable highlights include:
  • Support for HP Generation 9 servers, including HP SSD Smart Path for improved performance when using HP Smart Array controllers
  • Support for the Intel XL710 family of Ethernet Controllers
  • Updates to paravirtualization drivers to support Oracle Linux guests running on Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Updates to the DTrace profile provider to include  profile-n probes, which can fire at fixed intervals at high-interrupt level on all active CPUs.  This is similar to the tick-n probe, which fires at fixed intervals at high interrupt level on one CPU per interval
  • Device driver updates (e.g. storage devices, network cards) from key partners, such as:
    • Broadcom
    • Brocade
    • Cisco
    • Emulex
