    Intel igb driver parameters

    Chithirai

      Hi,

       

      Currently, we are using Intel I-350-T2 cards with igb driver version igb-5.0.6 with our RHEL 6.4 - 64 bit boxes. And we have configured our /etc/modprobe.d/igb.conf file as

       

      options igb InterruptThrottleRate=0,0 LLIPort=8080,3306

       

      To my understanding, with these given parameters igb driver will be initialized with both


      igb: 0000:01:00.0: igb_check_options: Interrupt Throttling Rate (ints/sec) turned off

      igb: 0000:01:00.0: igb_validate_option: Low Latency Interrupt TCP Port set to 8080

      Would like to know, the correct way of using these parameters and benefits of those parameter when used individually and combined

       

      Also, like to have the suggestions and comments from the Community for getting the best out of Intel IGB driver parameter for small packet networks

       

      Thanks / Chithirai Ganesh
