NAME

     hatm - device driver for Fore/Marconi HE155 and HE622 ATM interfaces

SYNOPSIS

     device hatm
     device utopia
     device atm

     options NATM

DESCRIPTION

     The hatm device driver supports the FORE (now Marconi) HE155 and HE622
     ATM interface cards.  The driver interfaces with the natm(4) framework,
     netgraph(4) and the HARP ATM stack.  It provides only PVC services.
     Signalling, ATMARP, ILMI and other higher layer protocols are implemented
     using netgraph(4) or HARP.

     For configuring the card for IP see natmip(4).

     The following sysctls are recognized by the driver additionally to those
     handled by utopia(4):

     hw.atm.hatm.natm_traffic
             This is the traffic type to be used for NATM pvc connections.
             The type of this variable is integer and it must have one of the
             values 0 (UBR) or 1 (CBR).

     hw.atm.hatm.natm_pcr
             This is the peak cell rate to be used for NATM CBR connections.

     hw.atm.hatmN.stats
             Contains an array of uint32_t with device specific statistics.

     hw.atm.hatmN.istats
             Contains an array of uint32_t with internal driver statistics.

     hw.atm.hatmN.debug
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  These are the debugging flags.  See
             src/sys/dev/hatm/if_hatmvar.h for the possible flags.

     hw.atm.hatmN.tsr
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  This is an array containing all
             transmission status registers.  For each of the 4096 possible
             VCCs there are 15 32-bit registers.

     hw.atm.hatmN.tpd
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  This is an array containing all on
             card current transmission packet descriptors.  For each of the
             4096 possible VCCs there are 16 32-bit registers.

     hw.atm.hatmN.mbox
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  This is an array containing the
             mbox registers.

     hw.atm.hatmN.cm
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  This is an array containing all
             connection memory registers.  The first 32-bit integer of this
             array is the ABR base address.

     hw.atm.hatmN.heregs
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  This is an array containing all
             card registers including SUNI and the FLASH ROM.

     hw.atm.hatmN.lbmem
             (Only if debugging enabled.)  Returns the contents of the local
             memory.

     The driver supports the media options sdh, noscramb and unassigned (see
     utopia(4)).

ENVIRONMENT

     When attaching to a device the driver checks the kernel environment (see
     kenv(1)) to see if the default queues sizes should be overwritten or not.
     The following variables are checked and interpreted as unsigned integer
     values (in either radix):

     hw.hatmN.rbps0_size
             Size of the small receive buffer pool 0.  This pool is used for
             all except raw AAL connections.  The pool size must be a power of
             two between 4 and 8192 inclusive.  When attaching the driver
             allocates this number of mbufs.

     hw.hatmN.rbps0_thresh
             Interrupt threshold for small receive buffer pool 0.  When the
             number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it
             generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

     hw.hatmN.rbpl0_thresh
             Size of the large receive buffer pool 0.  This pool is used for
             all except raw AAL connections.  The pool size must be a power of
             two between 4 and 8192 inclusive.  When attaching the driver
             allocates this number of mbufs with clusters.

     hw.hatmN.rbpl0_thresh
             Interrupt threshold for large receive buffer pool 0.  When the
             number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it
             generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq0_size
             Size of receive buffer return queue 0.  This queue is used to
             return buffers filled with received frames to the driver.  The
             size must be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq0_thresh
             Interrupt threshold for receive buffer return queue 0.  This
             threshold should only be triggered in exceptional cases.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq0_tout
             Interrupt timeout for receive buffer return queue 0.  An
             interrupt is generated after this time if the queue is not empty.
             The number is in internal card ticks.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq0_pcnt
             Packet count threshold for receive buffer return queue 0.  An
             interrupt is generated if this number of packets is in the queue.

     hw.hatmN.rbps1_size
             Size of the small receive buffer pool 1.  This pool is used for
             all raw AAL connections.  The pool size must be a power of two
             between 4 and 8192 inclusive.  When attaching the driver
             allocates this number of mbufs.

     hw.hatmN.rbps1_thresh
             Interrupt threshold for small receive buffer pool 1.  When the
             number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it
             generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq1_size
             Size of receive buffer return queue 1.  This queue is used to
             return buffers filled with received cells to the driver.  The
             size must be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq1_thresh
             Interrupt threshold for receive buffer return queue 1.  This
             threshold should only be triggered in exceptional cases.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq1_tout
             Interrupt timeout for receive buffer return queue 1.  An
             interrupt is generated after this time if the queue is not empty.
             The number is in internal card ticks.

     hw.hatmN.rbrq1_pcnt
             Packet count threshold for receive buffer return queue 0.  An
             interrupt is generated if this number of cells is in the queue.

     hw.hatmN.irq0_size
             Size of interrupt queue 0.  This must be a number between 1 and
             1023 inclusive.

     hw.hatmN.irq0_thresh
             Interrupt retrigger threshold of interrupt queue 0.  A new
             interrupt is trigger if the queue fill state reaches this
             threshold and the interrupt was no served.

     hw.hatmN.tbrq0_size
             Transmit buffer return queue 0 size.  This queue is used to feed
             back empty buffers of transmitted frames back to the driver.  It
             must be a power of 2 between 1 and 4096 inclusive.

     hw.hatmN.tbrq0_thresh
             Transmit buffer return queue 0 threshold.  An interrupt is
             generated if the queue fill state reaches this point.

     hw.hatmN.tpdrq_size
             Transmit descriptor ready queue size.  This queue is used by the
             driver to feed transmit descriptors into the card.  The size must
             be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

     hw.hatmN.tpdmax
             Maximum number of active TPDs per connection.  This controls the
             maximum number of outstanding packet chunks per connection and
             thus the maximum delay packets can have because of queueing on
             the adapter.  If set to 0, a connection can eat up all available
             TPDs.

     hw.hatmN.mbuf_max_pages
             Maximum number of memory pages allocated to small external mbufs.
             This must not be zero and not larger than 65536.

CAVEATS

     When putting a HE155 into a 64-bit 66MHz PCI slot the machine may hang.
     This occurs very early in the POST so that even the display does not turn
     on.  The HE155 runs only in 33MHz slots (either 32 or 64-bit).  HE622
     cards work just fine in 64-bit slots.

     The driver may not work with bounce buffer, because of bus_dmamap_sync(9)
     missing the offset and len arguments the NetBSD function has.
