NAME

igb - Intel(R) PRO/1000 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver

SYNOPSIS

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

Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:

 if_igb_load="YES"
 

DESCRIPTION

The driver provides support for PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet adapters based on the Intel 82575 and 82576 Ethernet controller chips. The driver supports Transmit/Receive checksum offload and Jumbo Frames. Furthermore it supports TCP segmentation offload (TSO) on all adapters.

For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation supplied with your Intel PRO/1000 adapter. All hardware requirements listed apply to use with Fx .

Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU setting. Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility configures the adapter to receive and transmit Jumbo Frames. The maximum MTU size for Jumbo Frames is 9216.

This driver supports hardware assisted VLANs. The driver supports the following media types:

autoselect
Enables auto-negotiation for speed and duplex.
10baseT/UTP
Sets 10Mbps operation. Use the mediaopt option to select full-duplex mode.
100baseTX
Sets 100Mbps operation. Use the mediaopt option to select full-duplex mode.
1000baseSX
Sets 1000Mbps operation. Only full-duplex mode is supported at this speed.
1000baseTX
Sets 1000Mbps operation. Only full-duplex mode is supported at this speed.

The driver supports the following media options:

full-duplex
Forces full-duplex operation
half-duplex
Forces half-duplex operation.

Only use mediaopt to set the driver to full-duplex If mediaopt is not specified, the driver defaults to half-duplex

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

HARDWARE

The driver supports Gigabit Ethernet adapters based on the Intel 82575 and 82576 controller chips:

LOADER TUNABLES

Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or stored in loader.conf5.
hw.igb.rxd
Number of receive descriptors allocated by the driver. The default value is 256. The minimum is 80, and the maximum is 4096.
hw.igb.txd
Number of transmit descriptors allocated by the driver. The default value is 256. The minimum is 80, and the maximum is 4096.
hw.igb.enable_aim
If set to 1, enable Adaptive Interrupt Moderation. The default is to enable Adaptive Interrupt Moderation.

DIAGNOSTICS

"igb%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: memory"
A fatal initialization error has occurred.
"igb%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: interrupt"
A fatal initialization error has occurred.
"igb%d: watchdog timeout -- resetting"
The device has stopped responding to the network, or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).
