     vxge — Neterion X3100 10GbE Server/Storage adapter driver


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

           device vxge

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in



     The vxge driver provides support for Neterion X3100 adapters.  The driver supports TCP
     Segmentation Offload (TSO/LSO), Large Receive Offload (LRO), Jumbo Frames, Receive Traffic
     Hash (RTH), VLAN, Promiscuous mode and Multi function mode.

     The vxge driver supports the following function modes:

           SF1_VP17 - 1 function with 17 VPATHs

           MF8_VP2 - 8 functions with 2 VPATHs per function

           MF2_VP8 - 2 functions, 8 Paths/Function

           MF4_VP4 - 4 Functions, 4 Paths/Function

           MF8P_VP2 - 8 functions with 2 VPATHs per function required for DirectIO

     For general information and support, please visit the Neterion support page

     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.  X3100 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 where additional information and a kernel patch can be found.

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