An interrupt is sent to the PF driver notifying it of the spoof attempt. Internal stress testing with jumbo frames shows the reliability on some and devices is improved in certain corner cases by disabling the Early Receive feature. If the system is reporting dropped transmits, this value may be set too high causing the driver to run out of available transmit descriptors. Search examples You can search our catalog of processors, chipsets, kits, SSDs, server products and more in several ways. If mediaopt is not specified, the driver defaults to half-duplex. The em driver supports the following media options: When igbvf is loaded with default settings and multiple adapters are in use simultaneously, the CPU utilization may increase non-linearly.

RxDescriptors This value specifies the number of receive buffer descriptors allocated by the driver. Jumbo Frames support is enabled by changing the MTU to a value larger than the default of Then follow the appropriate steps for building, installing, and configuring the driver.

Other distributions may store this setting in a different location. However, the frequency and random intervals at which packets arrive do not allow the system to enter intsl lower power state. This issue may be seen with PCI-X adapters or with packet split 82546gg.

In order to see network driver link messages on your console, set dmesg to eight 28546gb entering the following:. If you are required to use a 2. This has a possible negative performance impact, which may be compensated for by allocating more descriptors using the TxDescriptors module parameter. When setting RxIntDelay to a value other than 0, adapters may hang stop transmitting under certain network conditions.


This option allows for the ability of IEEE In simplified mode the interrupt rate is based on the ratio of tx and rx traffic. These correspond to the following product names: On certain non-Intel architectures, it has been observed lijux intense TX traffic bursts of short packets may result in jntel improper descriptor writeback. This reduces interrupt load on the system and can lower CPU utilization under heavy load, but will increase latency as packets are not processed as quickly.

Several adapters with the chipset display “TX unit hang” messages during normal operation with the e driver.

The range of to interrupts per second works on a majority of systems and is a good starting point, but the optimal value will be inte. The identification LEDs of the adapters supported by the em driver can be controlled via the led 4 API for localization purposes.

This driver version supports VLANs.

Intel refers to these processors as tray or OEM processors. Do not use MSI-X with the 2. Ibtel to the default ARP behavior on Linux, it is not possible to have one system on two IP networks in the same Ethernet broadcast domain non-partitioned switch behave as expected.

The driver can limit the amount of interrupts per second that the adapter will generate for incoming packets. Proper tuning, along with RxIntDelay, 82546b improve traffic throughput in specific network conditions.

Ports 1 and 2 don’t show any errors and will pass traffic. It should be used when you wish to control which speed and duplex combinations are advertised during the auto-negotiation process. If you encounter the problem in an adapter, and the chipset is an based one, you can verify that your adapter needs the fix by using ethtool: As an example, if you install the ee driver for two Gigabit adapters eth0 and eth1 and want to set the interrupt mode to MSI-X and MSI respectively, add the following to modules.


A link between two EEE-compliant devices will result in periodic bursts of data followed by periods where the link is in an idle state.

Useful only if TxIntDelay is non-zero, this value ensures that an interrupt is generated after the initial packet is sent on the wire within the set amount of time. Search examples You can search our catalog of processors, chipsets, kits, SSDs, server products and more in several ways.

This is a 3rd party limitation. Some Intel gigabit adapters that support Jumbo Frames have a frame size limit of bytes, with a corresponding MTU size limit of bytes.

Multiqueue In inrel mode, a separate MSI-X vector is allocated for each queue and one for “other” interrupts such as link status change and errors. Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is distribution dependent. Instructions on updating ethtool can be found in the section Additional Configurations later in this document.
