Configure Queue Depth on multiple HBA's


in our environment we have 2 server types (both vSphere 4.1 Update 1).

One type has 2 Dual-Port Qlogic HBA's, the other 2 Dual-Port Emulex HBA's.

Now we want to set the Queue Depth option for every hba (hba instance) to 64.

We've found the articles and

Is it right that we must configure our Emulex hba's in this way:

esxcfg-module -s "lpfc8_lun_queue_depth=64 lpfc9_lun_queue_depth=64 lpfc10_lun_queue_depth=64 lpfc11_lun_queue_depth=64" lpfc820

where 8-11 are the instances we see under /proc/scsi/lpfc820 ?

What is with the Qlogic hba's ? In the article is only the command "esxcfg-module -s ql2xmaxqdepth=64 qla2xxx" mentioned. Are all instances of the qlogic affected from this command or is the "x" by "ql2x" a wildcard ?

Under /proc/scsi/qla2xxx we see instances with the numbers 7-10.

Yours sincerely
