   17 Overview
   18 ========
   19 
   20 This file describes the FreeBSD* driver, version 1.0.x, for the Intel(R)
   21 PRO/10GbE Family of Adapters.  This driver has been developed for use with
   22 FreeBSD, version 4.8 and later.
   23 
   24 For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation
   25 supplied with your Intel PRO/10GbE adapter.  All hardware requirements listed
   26 apply to use with FreeBSD.
   27 
   28 
   29 
   30 Supported Adapters
   31 ==================
   32 
   33 The following Intel network adapters are compatible with the drivers in this 
   34 release:
   35 
   36  Controller     Adapter Name                     Physical Layer
   37  ----------     ------------                     --------------
   38 
   39  82597EX        PRO/10GbE LR/SR Server Adapter   10G Base -LR and -SR
   40                                                  850 and 1310 nm optical fiber
   41 
   42 
   43 Building and Installation
   44 =========================
   45 
   46 NOTE: You must have kernel sources installed in order to compile the driver
   47       module.
   48 
   49       In the instructions below, x.x.x is the driver version as indicated in
   50       the name of the driver tar.
   51 
   52 
   53 1. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice. For 
   54    example, use /home/username/ixgb or /usr/local/src/ixgb.
   55 
   56 2. Untar/unzip the archive:
   57      tar xfz ixgb-x.x.x.tar.gz
   58 
   59 3. To install man page:
   60      cd ixgb-x.x.x
   61      gzip -c ixgb.4 > /usr/share/man/man4/ixgb.4.gz
   62 
   63 4. To load the driver onto a running system:
   64      cd ixgb-x.x.x/src
   65      make load
   66 
   67 5. To assign an IP address to the interface, enter the following:
   68      ifconfig ixgb<interface_num> <IP_address>
   69 
   70 6. Verify that the interface works. Enter the following, where <IP_address>
   71    is the IP address for another machine on the same subnet as the interface
   72    that is being tested:
   73      ping <IP_address>
   74 
   75 7. If you want the driver to load automatically when the system is booted:
   76 
   77      cd ixgb-x.x.x/src
   78      make load
   79      cp if_ixgb.ko /modules
   80         
   81     Edit /boot/loader.conf, and add the following line:
   82      if_ixgb_load="YES"
   83 
   84      OR
   85 
   86      compile the driver into the kernel (see item 7).
   87 
   88 
   89    Edit /etc/rc.conf, and create the appropriate ifconfig_ixgb<interface_num> 
   90    entry:
   91 
   92      ifconfig_ixgb<interface_num>="<ifconfig_settings>"
   93 
   94      Example usage:
   95 
   96      ifconfig_ixgb0="inet 192.168.10.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
   97 
   98      NOTE: For assistance, see the ifconfig man page.
   99 
  100 8. If you want to compile the driver into the kernel, enter:
  101 
  102      cd ixgb-x.x.x/src
  103 
  104      mkdir /usr/src/sys/dev/ixgb
  105 
  106      cp if_ixgb* /usr/src/sys/dev/ixgb
  107 
  108      cp ixgb* /usr/src/sys/dev/ixgb  
  109  
  110      cp Makefile.kernel /usr/src/sys/modules/ixgb/Makefile
  111 
  112    If you have an i386 platform, you will need to edit the files.i386 file. 
  113    This is usually in /usr/src/sys/conf/; actual locations wil vary depending 
  114    on platform.  Add the following lines:
  115 
  116      dev/ixgb/ixgb_hw.c optional ixgb
  117      dev/ixgb/ixgb_ee.c optional ixgb
  118      dev/ixgb/if_ixgb.c optional ixgb
  119 
  120 
  121    Remove the following lines from the files.i386 file, if they exist:
  122 
  123      /dev/ixgb/if_ixgb_fx_hw.c optional ixgb
  124      /dev/ixgb/if_ixgb_phy.c optional ixgb
  125 
  126    Edit the kernel configuration file (i.e., GENERIC or MYKERNEL) in
  127    /usr/src/sys/i386/conf, and ensure the following line is present:
  128 
  129      device ixgb
  130 
  131    Compile and install the kernel.  The system must be reboot for the kernel 
  132    updates to take affect.  For additional information on compiling the kernel, 
  133    consult the FreeBSD operating system documentation.
  134 
  135 
  136 
  137 Additional Configurations
  138 =========================
  139 
  140 The driver supports Transmit/Receive Checksum Offload and Jumbo Frames on
  141 all PRO/10GbE adapters. 
  142 
  143   Jumbo Frames
  144   ------------
  145   To enable Jumbo Frames, use the ifconfig utility to increase the MTU
  146   beyond 1500 bytes.
  147 
  148   NOTES:
  149        - Only enable Jumbo Frames if your network infrastructure supports
  150          them.
  151 
  152        - The Jumbo Frames setting on the switch must be set to at least
  153          22 bytes larger than that of the adapter.
  154 
  155        - There are known performance issues with this driver when running 
  156          UDP traffic with Jumbo Frames. 
  157 
  158   The Jumbo Frames MTU range for Intel Adapters is 1500 to 16114. The default
  159   MTU range is 1500. To modify the setting, enter the following:
  160 
  161         ifconfig ixgb<interface_num> <hostname or IP address> mtu 9000
  162 
  163   To confirm an interface's MTU value, use the ifconfig command. To confirm
  164   the MTU used between two specific devices, use:
  165 
  166         route get <destination_IP_address>
  167 
  168  VLANs
  169   -----
  170   To create a new VLAN pseudo-interface:
  171 
  172         ifconfig <vlan_name> create
  173 
  174   To associate the VLAN pseudo-interface with a physical interface and
  175   assign a VLAN ID, IP address, and netmask:
  176 
  177         ifconfig <vlan_name> <ip_address> netmask <subnet_mask> vlan
  178            <vlan_id> vlandev <physical_interface>
  179 
  180   Example:
  181 
  182         ifconfig vlan10 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 vlan10 vlandev ixgb0
  183 
  184   In this example, all packets will be marked on egress with 802.1Q VLAN 
  185   tags, specifying a VLAN ID of 10.
  186 
  187   To remove a VLAN pseudo-interface:
  188 
  189         ifconfig <vlan_name> destroy
  190 
  191   Polling
  192   -------
  193   To enable polling in the driver, add the following options to the kernel
  194   configuration, and then recompile the kernel:
  195 
  196         options DEVICE_POLLING
  197         options HZ=1000
  198 
  199   At runtime, use the following command to turn on polling mode.
  200 
  201         ifconfig ixgb0 polling
  202 
  203   Similarly, turn off polling mode by removing IFCAP_POLLING flag from
  204   interface:
  205 
  206         ifconfig ixgb0 -polling
  207 
  208   The driver has to be built into the kernel for DEVICE POLLING to be
  209   enabled in the driver.
