Linux Driver: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter User’s Guide
The current version of the Linux driver has been thoroughly tested on Red Hat 8. In the case of supporting only the module version of these drivers, it is possible to simply run the following to compile patched drivers and to install them into the proper module directory:.
All primary NIC interfaces in a team will participate in Load-balancing operations by sending and receiving a portion of the total traffic. For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. The team configuration will be automatically started on subsequent reboots. If the patched drivers are configured into the kernel, goto step 7.
The valid values are:. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks between periodic statistics block DMAs. Note that the driver may not be able to allocate the required amount of memory if this parameter is set too high. When this happens, repeat Step 2 to configure an IP address for all the virtual network interfaces. Most systems are set to level 6 by default.
Configures the number of transmit descriptors. This parameter should not be set less than 80 on systems with high network traffic.
All the member NICs, once in the Note that if not all the virtual network interfaces are configured with an IP address, there will be an error message in starting the BASP team.
Enables or disables receiving flow control pause frames.
A team can consist of 1 to 8 NIC interfaces and each interface can be designated primary, or hot-standby SLB team only. The snmpget and snmpgetnext commands can be used to receive the BASP snmp objects such as:.
After extraction, change the directory to where the BASP source files are located. Configures the number of receive descriptors for frames up to bytes. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks before the NIC generates receive interrupt after receiving a frame. BASP for Linux is shipped in mixed forms, where the platform and kernel specific files are in source code, and the core file is in object form. Configures the number of received frames before the NIC generates receive interrupt.
Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of network traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of jumbo traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. Enables or disables scatter-gather and bit DMA on x The driver diskette images for the most recent Red Hat versions are included.
Selects the duplexity of the link. These features are provided by creating teams that consist of multiple NIC interfaces. Note that the –force option is needed if installing on some brladcom that may already contain controlle older version of the driver.
Unsupported SSL/TLS Version
These parameters take the form. The tar file contains additional utilities such as patches and driver diskette images for network installation. Step 2 “Modify the configuration script” should be performed whenever there is any change to the team configuration.
Note that the configuration script name must be prefixed with “team-“. In the case that this first physical interface is removed dynamically from the team using “baspcfg” tool and bounded to the protocol directly, this could lead to a duplicate MAC address problem on the network.
The valid range is from 1 to When the maximum frame size is less than MTU size less thanthis parameter is not used and is always 0.
