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.
