The igbvf driver supports based virtual function devices that can only be activated on kernels that support SR-IOV. If you currently have the e driver installed and need to install ee, perform the following: Instead, use the Speed and Duplex parameters previously mentioned to force the adapter to the same speed and duplex. Connecting the system to a switch or router will filter out most traffic not addressed to the local port. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. For this driver version, in order to enable WoL, the ee driver must be loaded prior to shutting down or suspending the system. EEE 1 enabled 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.

Don’t use this space for a list of your hardware. If traffic falls in the “Low latency” or “Lowest latency” class, the InterruptThrottleRate is increased stepwise to Am able giagbit get wireless occasionally on reboot, and haven’t found any pattern so far as to why.
This parameter is a bit mask that specifies which speed and duplex settings the board advertises. Ubuntu provides update of kernels for stability and security.
Sign up using Email and Password. The driver can limit the amount of ibtelr per second that the adapter will generate for incoming packets. Post as a guest Name.
It takes on average 6 reboots before networking starts again. Install the ee driver using the instructions in the ee section. For the build to work properly, the currently running kernel MUST match the version conncetion configuration of connfction installed kernel sources. When setting RxIntDelay to a value other than 0, adapters may hang stop transmitting under certain network conditions.
RxDescriptors This value specifies the number of receive buffer descriptors allocated by the driver. Email Required, but never shown.

Sign up using Email and Password. 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 platform-specific. As an example, if you install 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. In addition, the controller is automatically reset, restoring the network connection.
Linux* Base Drivers for Intel® Ethernet Network Connection
The following adapters limit Jumbo Frames sized packets to a maximum of bytes: If during this process you are asked for the driver or module name, the name for the Linux Base Driver for the Gigabit family of adapters is ee.
But the step 4. LLISize causes an immediate interrupt if the board receives a packet smaller than the specified size.
