Allows changing the interrupt mode at module load time, without requiring a recompile. Interrupt moderation must be used to avoid interrupt storms while the driver is processing one interrupt. A descriptor describes a data buffer and attributes related to the data buffer. Post as a guest Name. If such problems are encountered, you may disable the irqbalance daemon or upgrade to a newer kernel. The following adapters do not support Jumbo Frames: NAPI Rx polling mode is supported in the e driver.

Sign up using Facebook. To eliminate the potential for the hang inteelr that RxIntDelay is set to zero. On the same pc, windows 7 works perfectly, so I guess that it’s a driver issue.

As this value decreases one may want to consider increasing the TxDescriptors value to maintain the same amount of frame memory. Example output of the script: When i moved the cable, i see Mbits.

Linux Kernel Driver DataBase: CONFIG_EE: Intel(R) PRO/ PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support

Also, the last two restarts I have disabled networking before restart, and enabled after boot up, and networking has worked. Of course, I’m a newbie, and as you can see my question is quite a general one: If your version of e is 7. A whitepaper containing information on how to best configure your platform is available on the Intel website.


Refer connfction the Speed and Duplex section of this readme for more information on the AutoNeg parameter. File or folder not connectikn.

Useful only if TxIntDelay is non-zero, this value ensures that an interrupt is generated after the initial packet is sent on the wire within the set amount of time. Receive interrupt reduction can improve CPU efficiency if properly tuned for netwoek network traffic. The script can be downloaded at http: Due to limited support for PCI-Express in 2. 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.

Use the ifconfig command to increase the MTU size. If the bytes per second rate is approximately equal, the interrupt rate will drop as low as interrupts per second.

So I went on intel’s website and downloaded the Drivers for Linux and compiled them with make install. This issue may be seen with PCI-X adapters or with packet split disabled. Channel Bonding documentation can be found in the Linux kernel source: As an example, if you install the igb 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.


LLI allows for immediate generation of an interrupt upon processing receive packets that match certain criteria as set by the parameters described below. Increasing this value allows the driver to queue more transmits. So, once you are in the directory you unpacked, cd src.

If you currently have the e driver installed and need to install ee, perform the following: If you have multiple interfaces in a server, either turn on ARP filtering by entering:.

For other Linux distributions, download and install ethtool from the following website: After requesting interrupts for MSI-X vectors, system may panic. Link messages will not be displayed to the console if the distribution is restricting system messages. Join Date Apr Beans 2. The following adapters do not support Jumbo Frames: Ubuntu provides update of kernels for stability and security. Email Required, but never shown. Minnen 3
