NAME

     nxge — Neterion Xframe 10GbE Server/Storage adapter driver

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device nxge

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in
     loader.conf(5):

           if_nxge_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The nxge driver provides support for Neterion Xframe-I and Xframe-II adapters.  The driver
     supports TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO/LSO), Large Receive Offload (LRO), Jumbo Frames (5
     buffer mode), Header Separation (Rx 2 buffer mode), VLAN, and Promiscuous mode.

     For general information and support, please visit the Neterion support page
     http://www.neterion.com/support/support.html.

     Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU setting.  Selecting an MTU larger
     than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility configures the adapter to transmit and receive
     Jumbo Frames.  Xframe adapters support Jumbo Frames up to 9600 bytes.

     For Jumbo Frames, the driver will try to allocate physically contiguous buffers.  Failures
     to do so may degrade the performance.  To resolve such problems, please visit
     http://www.neterion.com where additional information and a kernel patch can be found.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE

     The nxge driver supports Neterion Xframe 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters listed in
