As this value decreases one may want to consider increasing the TxDescriptors value to maintain the same amount of frame memory. If your version of e is 7. There are no workarounds for this problem in this network configuration. The value at offset 0xe de has bit 0 unset. It only needs to be set for Jumbo Frames. LLI parameters are not enabled when Legacy interrupts are used. The driver can limit the amount of interrupts per second that the adapter will generate for incoming packets.

Allows for delivery and returns. Three keywords are used to control the speed and duplex configuration.

Alternatively, you can use ethtool version 1. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8. Link messages will not be displayed to the console if the distribution is restricting system messages. In kernel versions 2. LLISize causes an immediate interrupt if the board receives a packet smaller than the specified size. These keywords are Speed, Duplex, and AutoNeg. Receive interrupt reduction can improve CPU efficiency if properly tuned for specific network traffic.

After installing the driver, if your Intel Ethernet Network Connection is not working, verify that you have installed the correct driver. The maximum MTU size is Useful only if RxIntDelay is non-zero, this value ensures that an interrupt is generated after the initial packet is received within the set amount of time. When igbvf is loaded with default settings and multiple adapters are in use simultaneously, the CPU utilization may increase non-linearly.


As an example, if you inyel the igbvf 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. If during this process you are asked for the driver or module name, the name for the Linux Base Driver liunx the Gigabit Family of Adapters is igbvf.

LRO combines multiple Ethernet frames into a single receive in the stack, thereby potentially decreasing CPU utilization for receives. The driver has two adaptive modes setting 1 or 3 in which it dynamically adjusts the InterruptThrottleRate value based on the traffic that it receives.

If you believe your system needs to disable lunux style of interrupt, the driver can be built and installed with the command:.

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. This parameter is not supported on the based adapter.

Allocating Rx buffers when using Jumbo Frames on 2. An interrupt is sent to the PF driver notifying it of the spoof attempt.

For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation supplied with your Intel Gigabit adapter.


Unable to allocate bus resource: Restarting the system appears to be the only remedy. Using kernel versions earlier than intsl. Other distributions may store this setting in a different location. Can be either one or two-directional.

Ubuntu Manpage: em — Intel(R) PRO/ Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver

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.

Using Jumbo frames at 10 or Mbps is not supported and may result in poor performance or loss of link. A whitepaper containing information on how to best configure your platform is available on the Intel website.

The configuration change can be made permanent by adding the line:. Turning on DMA Coalescing may save energy with kernel 2.

If you currently have the e driver installed and need to install ee, perform the following: The value at offset 0xe de has bit 0 unset. Node 0-n 0 – n: Setting InterruptThrottleRate to a value greater or equal to will program the adapter to send out a intle of that many interrupts per second, even if more packets have come in.
