SFXGE(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		      SFXGE(4)

NAME
     sfxge -- Solarflare 10Gb Ethernet adapter driver

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

	   device sfxge

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

	   sfxge_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The sfxge driver provides support for 10Gb	Ethernet adapters based	on
     Solarflare	SFC9000	family controllers.  The driver	supports jumbo frames,
     transmit/receive checksum offload,	TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO),	Large
     Receive Offload (LRO), VLAN checksum offload, VLAN	TSO, and Receive Side
     Scaling (RSS) using MSI-X interrupts.

     The driver	allocates 1 receive queue, transmit queue, event queue and IRQ
     per CPU up	to a maximum of	64.  IRQ affinities should be spread out using
     cpuset(1).	 Interrupt moderation may be controlled	through	the sysctl
     dev.sfxge.%d.int_mod (units are microseconds).

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

     A large number of MAC, PHY	and data path statistics are available under
     the sysctl	dev.sfxge.%d.stats.  The adapter's VPD fields including	its
     serial number are available under the sysctl dev.sfxge.%d.vpd.

HARDWARE
     The sfxge driver supports all 10Gb	Ethernet adapters based	on Solarflare
     SFC9000 family controllers.

SUPPORT
     For general information and support, go to	the Solarflare support website
