These properties take the following form:. During your attempt to install a source RPM package, the following message may be displayed:. Note that the MTU size excludes the ethernet header size of 14 bytes. If the driver was installed using make install from the tar file, the tg3. Optional parameters for the driver can be supplied as command line arguments to the insmod command. When the maximum frame size is less than MTU size less than , this property is not used and always has a value of 0.

Re: Broadcom BCM5701

Use ifconfig to bring down all eth interfaces used by tg3 and do the following to unload the tg3 driver: Linkx valid values are: Enables or disables scatter-gather bcm701 bit DMA on x Configures the number of transmit descriptors.

Configures the number of 1 usec ticks between periodic statistics block DMAs. Configures the number of receive descriptors for jumbo frames larger than bytes. The default value or other appropriate values are used if you specify an invalid value.

Enabling it allows the driver to dynamically adjust the interrupt coalescing parameters to achieve high throughput during heavy traffic and low latency during light traffic. Note that when configuring Teaming, at least one Primary Adapter is required.

Three packages are shipped in this release: SLB mode works with all Ethernet switches without configuring the switch ports to any special trunking mode. Refer to the ifconfig man page for details. If set, this property also disables the Wake on Lan setting.

If loading the driver on Bfm5701 Hat 7. When the driver resets the adapter during ifconfigthe link is dropped, and it may take several seconds for the link to come up after auto-negotiation is completed.

Configures the number of transmitted frames before the adapter generates a transmit interrupt. Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of jumbo traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. When the maximum frame size bbcm5701 less than MTU size less thanthis parameter is not used and is always 0.

An interrupt is generated when either of these thresholds is exceeded. This step is optional and should only be done by users familiar with configuring and building the kernel.

Enables jumbo frames up to the specified MTU size. If the driver was installed using make install from the tar file, the tg3. Note that the backed up copy of the original bcm module will be bc5m701 after you unload and reload the driver, where appropriate.


The name of the backup script must NOT be prefixed with “team-“.

Configures the number of transmit descriptors. Selects the duplex mode of the link. The linnux file contains additional utilities such as patches and driver diskette images for network installation.

Enables or disables adaptive adjustments to the various interrupt coalescing parameters. Source RPM bcm version. Note that Mbps must be negotiated for copper twisted pair links.

Hot-standby interfaces will take over in the event that all primary interfaces have lost their links. The valid range is from 0 toand default is When jumbo frames larger than bytes are used, the value of this property should not be set lower than 60 on systems with high network traffic.

On systems with insufficient memory, it may be necessary to reduce this parameter. If the patched drivers are configured as modules, goto step 6.

Configures the number of 1-microsecond ticks before the adapter generates a receive interrupt after receiving a frame.
