IXG(4)                  NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                 IXG(4)

NAME
     ixg -- Intel(R) 10Gb Ethernet driver

SYNOPSIS
     ixg* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION
     The ixg driver provides support for PCI 10Gb Ethernet adapters based on
     the Intel(R) 82598EB and 82599 10 GbE Controllers.  The driver supports
     Jumbo Frames, TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO).

     For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documenta-
     tion supplied with your Intel 10GbE adapter.  All hardware requirements
     listed apply to use with NetBSD.

     Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU setting.
     Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility con-
     figures the adapter to receive and transmit Jumbo Frames.  On NetBSD, the
     maximum MTU size for Jumbo Frames is 9000 bytes.

     This driver version supports VLANs.  For information on enabling VLANs,
     see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE
     The ixg driver supports the following cards:

        Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/AF Dual Port Server Adapter
        Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/LR Server Adapter
        Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AF Network Connection
        Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AT CX4 Network Connection

DIAGNOSTICS
     ixg%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: memory  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     ixg%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: interrupt  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     ixg%d: watchdog timeout -- resetting  The device has stopped responding
     to the network, or there is a problem with the network connection
     (cable).

HISTORY
     The ixg device driver comes from FreeBSD, where it is called ixgbe(4).
     It first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

AUTHORS
     The ixg driver was written by Intel Corporation
     <freebsdnic@mailbox.intel.com>.  It was imported from FreeBSD into NetBSD
     by
     David Young <dyoung@NetBSD.org>.

BUGS
     The hardware supports a maximum MTU of 16114 bytes, but the NetBSD port
     of the driver supports only 9000 bytes.

     The hardware supports Message-Signalled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X) and
     Receive-Side Scaling (RSS), however, these features are not enabled in
     the NetBSD driver at this time.

NetBSD 6.0                       July 25, 2011                      NetBSD 6.0
