This can be an issue on Linux distributions that timeout when checking for link prior to acquiring a DHCP address; however there is usually a way to work around this e. Iconic One Theme Powered by WordPress. This parameter is also affected by the VMDq parameter in that it will limit the queues more. This may differ for various Linux distributions. The default value for each parameter is generally the recommended setting, unless otherwise noted.

Normally the driver generates an interrupt every two seconds. Proper tuning, along with TxIntDelay, may improve traffic throughput in specific network conditions.

Intel® Network Adapter Driver for PCIe* Intel® Gigabit Ethernet Network Connections Under Linux*

Increasing this value allows the driver to buffer more incoming packets, at the expense of increased system memory utilization. As suggested, I updated the BIOS to the newest version, Left the device without power for a while and changed the hardware configuration. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

To override the default, use the following compile-time flags. NAPI Rx polling mode is supported in the e driver.

Note that the physical network cards in the physical ESXi host is totally unrelated. Additional Configurations Kntel the Driver on Different Distributions Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is distribution dependent. Once the class is determined, the InterruptThrottleRate value is adjusted to suit that traffic type the best.


The virtual adapters belong to either of two groups: If both Duplex and the link partner are set to auto-negotiate, the board auto-detects the correct duplex. This inte, interrupt load on the system and can lower CPU utilization under heavy load, but will increase latency as packets are not processed as quickly.

This may increase network latency but also increases the chances that the system will enter a lower power state.

The parameter may be specified as either a decimal or hexadecimal value as determined by the bitmap below. The default behavior of the driver previously assumed a static InterruptThrottleRate value ofproviding a good fallback value for all traffic types, but lacking in small packet performance and latency.

The value at offset 0xe de has bit 0 unset.

In addition the number of queues available for RSS is limited if this is set to 1 or greater. All interrupts are throttled via interrupt moderation.

If during this process you are asked for the driver or module name, the name for the Linux Base Driver for the Gigabit family of adapters is e This parameter is not supported on the based adapter. The AutoNeg parameter infel used when more control is required over the auto-negotiation process.

After requesting interrupts for MSI-X vectors, system may panic. This will impart the greatest chance for your system to consume less power. This default mode is suitable for most applications. The VMkernel will present something that to the guest operating system will look exactly as some specific real world hardware and the guest could detect them through plug and play and use a native device driver.


These keywords are Speed, Inteel, and AutoNeg. The moderation value should be at least as large as the expected time for the driver to process an interrupt. Jumbo Frames support is enabled by changing the MTU to a value larger than the default of For this driver version, in order to kntel WoL, the e driver must be loaded prior to shutting down or suspending the d100e.

Written by Eugene Mihailescu: These are virtual hardware who emulates real existing physical network adapters. For the guest operating system this will mean that it typically during the OS installation phase only senses that an unknown device is located in a PCI slot on the virtual motherboard, but inrel has no driver to actually use it. Safari Chrome IE Firefox.

The e driver is no longer maintained as a standalone component. A descriptor describes a data buffer and attributes related to the data buffer. This may differ for various Linux distributions.
