Enables or disables autonegotiation of flow control. This tool can be used in custom initialization scripts. If you have customized or rebuilt your kernel you may need to install your bcm module using the source RPM package described above. After extraction, change the directory to where the BASP source files are located. Removal of Physical Interface in Generic Trunking and If the patched drivers are configured as modules, goto step 6.

Configures the number of transmit descriptors. A fro can consist of 1 to 8 NIC interfaces and each interface can be designated primary, or hot-standby Modulee team only.

For users of other Linux distributions, follow instructions in the “baspcfg” section. Enables or disables receiving flow control pause frames. Use with other Linux distribution will cause an error. Removal of Physical Interface in Generic Trunking and BASP is a kernel module designed for 2.

All primary NIC interfaces in a team will participate in Load-balancing operations by sending and receiving a portion of the total traffic. For example, on Red Hat 8.


Re: Module support for Broadcom ethernet

Please read your distribution-specific documentation for bc,5700 information on your distributors startup procedures. For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. To install patched drivers:.

Default is and valid range is from 1 to The valid range is from 0 toand default is Both team-sample and team-gec are configuration scripts that follow the same syntax, as follows:. Selects the duplexity of the link. Enables or disables scatter-gather and bit DMA on x The file name must be prefixed with “ifcfg-” then the physical adapter alias. Note that Mbps must be negotiated for copper twisted pair links.

To rectify the situation, locate the rpm-build package on the Red Hat installation media and install it using the command: This mode is protocol-independent and all traffic will be load-balanced and fault-tolerant.

Further information is available from Red Hat’s website, http: Configures the number of transmitted frames before the NIC generates transmit interrupt. Thus please follow the instruction 3 in the Install – TAR archive to modify the snmpd.

Re: Module support for Broadcom ethernet

The name of the backup script must NOT be prefixed with “team-“. Note that when configuring Teaming, at least one Primary Adapter is required.


The driver cannot detect all such conflicting combinations. Configures the number of receive descriptors for jumbo frames larger than bytes.

Note that each descriptor requires a buffer the size of a maximum jumbo frame. Enabling it allows the driver to dynamically adjust the interrupt coalescing parameters to achieve high throughput during heavy traffic and low latency during light traffic.

Complete the installation of the source RPM as previously described. Note that the –force option is needed if installing on some distributions that may already contain an older version of the driver. This tool can be used in custom initialization scripts. The valid values are:. 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.
