In SLB and Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of network traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. SLB mode works with all Ethernet switches without configuring the switch ports to any special trunking mode. Note that the backed up copy of the original bcm module will be restored after you unload and reload the driver, where appropriate. Following steps for Red Hat Linux distributions only. Generic trunking mode does not require NICE and can work with any NIC, however, it requires the Ethernet switch to support the technology and be properly configured. Claims arising under this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of California, excluding its principles of conflict of laws and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods.

For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. Braodcom the number of transmitted frames before the NIC generates transmit interrupt.
The Software is copyrighted and protected by the laws of the United States and other countries, and international treaty provisions. For example, on Red Hat 8. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks between periodic statistics block DMAs. This MAC address is the same address as that of the first physical interface bounded to the team. See the ifconfig man page for details.
Following steps for Red Hat Linux distributions only.
Please read your distribution-specific documentation for more information on your distributors startup procedures. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks before the NIC generates transmit interrupt after broafcom a frame. Enables or disables adaptive adjustments to the various interrupt coalescing parameters.
The patch will modify the orginal kernel’s source code.
Installing Linux Driver Software. If the driver was installed using make install from the tar file, the driver bcm Configures the number of receive descriptors for jumbo frames larger than bytes.
These features are provided by creating teams that consist of multiple NIC interfaces. Intel may terminate broadcoom Agreement at any time if you violate its terms. The valid values are:. See the release notes for installation instructions, supported hardware, what broaddom new, bug fixes, and known issues.

Selects the duplexity of the link. Configures the number of receive descriptors for frames up to bytes. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software. Upon termination, you will immediately destroy the Software or return all copies of the Software to Intel.
Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet* LAN Driver
Enables or disables scatter-gather and bit DMA on x This parameter should not be set less than 80 on systems with high network traffic. Note that the configuration script name must be prefixed with “team-“.
BASP is a kernel module designed for 2.
In the case that this first physical interface is removed dynamically from the team using “baspcfg” tool and bounded to the protocol directly, this could lead to a duplicate MAC address problem on the network. You broacdom not remove any copyright notices from the Software.
After extraction, change the directory to where the BASP source files are located. Note that the MTU size excludes the ethernet header size of 14 bytes.
Copy the patched drivers to the Linux kernel network driver source directory, i. A team can consist of 1 to 8 NIC interfaces and each interface can be designated primary, or hot-standby SLB team only. Your personal information will be used to respond to this llinux only.
