Ask for help!!! I’m totally desperate. I cannot graduate without using this card, long story, lots of effort and 2 days to locate the problem. Should I add more fans to my workstation? Anyway based on the errors.
Please refer to the Bluefield Hardware Spec , as it looks like it getting high temperature and as a safety step the NIC DPU is shutting down .
Kindly check the cooling system on the server and the adapter if it follows the spec
**|Operational|0°C to 55°C|
|Non-operational|-40°C to 70°C (b)|
Also you can review supported servers for Bluefield 3
I’m using Bluefield2.
|0°C to 55°C
|-40°C to 70°C(c)

I know it might be late, but I only checked in today.
You can check if the temperature is really a problem by actually getting the temperature of the SmartNIC.
Check this thread to do so:
I faced similar issue with my BF2. Installing a cooling fan on top of BF2 solved the issue. I am using a fan which can be attached in the expansion slots.
Hi, thank you! I have solved my problem by adding an extra cooling fan. Thanks again.
Thank you! BTW, dmesg can also provided many messages.
