IXGBE(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		      IXGBE(4)

NAME
     ixgbe -- Intel(R) 10Gb Ethernet driver for	the FreeBSD operating system

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

	   device ixgbe

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

	   if_ixgbe_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The ixgbe driver provides support for PCI 10Gb Ethernet adapters based on
     the Intel 82598EB Intel(R)	Network	Connections.  The driver supports
     Jumbo Frames, MSIX, TSO, and RSS.

     For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documenta-
     tion supplied with	your Intel 10GbE adapter.  All hardware	requirements
     listed apply to use with FreeBSD.

     Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU	setting.
     Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility con-
     figures the adapter to receive and	transmit Jumbo Frames.	The maximum
     MTU size for Jumbo	Frames is 16114.

     This driver version supports VLANs.  For information on enabling VLANs,
     see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE
     The ixgbe driver supports the following cards:

     +o	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF	SR/AF Dual Port	Server Adapter
     +o	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF	SR/LR Server Adapter
     +o	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AF	Network	Connection
     +o	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AT	CX4 Network Connection

     error has occurred.

     ixgbe%d: Unable to	allocate bus resource: interrupt  A fatal initializa-
