    What's the difference between the in-kernel ethernet drivers and intel drivers like i40e, ixgbe, e1000e, igb?


      We are in the process of build a new release for Seagate Linux OS. I'm now scratching my head whether to pick the in-kernel stock drivers or go with the latest intel drivers?

      It's a CentOS based OS, so it's rpm based.

      The target drivers that I'm looking at are: i40e, ixgbe, e1000e, igb

      I have system with adapters that need either e1000e and/or igb/ixgbe, where as i40e would be needed for the HBA cards.

      Please advise.
