NAME

       vmxnet3 - vmware kernel module

SYNOPSIS

       modprobe vmxnet3

DESCRIPTION

       This is a Linux kernel device driver module that drives VMware's second
       fast networking device. As it is backed by real (virtual) hardware,  it
       should be automatically loaded by hotplug or udev as needed. Unlike the
       older 'vmxnet' hardware, the 'vmxnet3' hardware does not morph  and  as
       such the modprobe-related logic isn't necessary.
