VXGE(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       VXGE(4)

NAME
     vxge -- Neterion X3100 10GbE Server/Storage adapter driver

SYNOPSIS
     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 loader.conf(5):

	   if_vxge_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     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 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 con-
     figures 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 http://www.neterion.com where additional informa-
     tion and a	kernel patch can be found.

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

HARDWARE
     The vxge driver supports Neterion X3100 10	Gigabit	Ethernet adapters
     listed in http://www.neterion.com.
