Intel is not supplying patches against the kernel source to allow for static linking of the driver. Additional Configurations Configuring the Driver on Different Distributions Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is distribution dependent. Adapters that have 4 ports behind a PCIe bridge may be incompatible with some systems. LLISize causes an immediate interrupt if the board receives a packet smaller than the specified size. TxDescriptorStep 1 use every Tx Descriptor 4 use every 4th Tx Descriptor 1 use every Tx Descriptor On certain non-Intel architectures, it has been observed that intense TX traffic bursts of short packets may result in an improper descriptor writeback. Load the module using either the insmod or modprobe command:

Due to the default ARP behavior on Linux, it is not possible to have one system on two IP networks in the same Ethernet llnux domain non-partitioned switch behave as expected.
The user should run the Linux oinux kit from http: As the issue addressed by this parameter has never been observed on Intel Architecture platforms, it should not be used on Intel platforms. Instructions on updating ethtool can be found in the section Additional Configurations later in this document. This value, in units of 1.
Linux Driver for Intel® Gigabit Network Connections
If such problems are encountered, you may disable the irqbalance daemon or upgrade to a newer kernel. This value specifies the number of receive buffer descriptors allocated by the driver. All interrupts are throttled via interrupt moderation.
Three lonux are used to control the speed and duplex configuration. As an example, if you install the igbvf driver kinux two Gigabit adapters eth0 and eth1 and want to set the interrupt mode to MSI-X and MSI respectively, add the following to modules.
This issue won’t be seen on 32bit version of EL5, as in that case, the kernel sees that RAM is located around the MB window and avoids using the mmconfig space. This parameter is also affected by the VMDq parameter in that it will limit the queues more.
FreeBSD Manual Pages
Defines the direction in which data is allowed to flow. The parameter may be specified as either a decimal or hexadecimal value as determined by the bitmap below.
In addition, the controller is automatically reset, restoring the network connection. For the build to work properly, the currently running kernel MUST match the version and configuration of the installed kernel sources. Do not use MSI-X with the 2. Increasing this value allows the driver to queue more transmits. In simplified mode the interrupt rate is based on the ratio of tx and rx traffic. Degradation in throughput performance may be observed in some Jumbo frames environments.
These correspond to the following product names: Some Intel gigabit adapters that support Jumbo Frames have a frame size limit of bytes, with a corresponding MTU size limit of bytes.
Refer to the Speed and Duplex section of this readme for more information on the AutoNeg parameter. This may increase network latency but also increases the chances that the system will enter a lower power state. Instead, use the Speed and Duplex parameters previously mentioned to force the adapter to the same speed and duplex.
All driver structures, in-memory queues, and receive buffers will be allocated on the node specified. The default value for each parameter is generally the recommended setting, unless otherwise noted.
On certain non-Intel architectures, it has been observed that intense TX traffic bursts of short packets may result in an improper descriptor writeback. If you have just recompiled the kernel reboot the system now.
Node 0-n 0 linyx n: RPM functionality has only been tested in Red Hat distributions. Connecting the system to a switch or router will filter out most traffic not addressed to the local port. MTU designates the frame size. The improper writeback does not occur on the first descriptor in a system memory cache-line, which is typically 32 bytes, or 4 descriptors long.
Doing this will cause your VFs to stop working until you reload the PF driver and may cause a spontaneous reboot of your system. The algorithm classifies the incoming traffic every interval into classes.
To eliminate the potential for the hang, ensure that InterruptThrottleRate is set no greater itb 75, and is not set to 0.
