Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

NAME
em -- Intel(R) PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver
SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device em Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_em_load="YES"
DESCRIPTION
The em driver provides support for PCI Gigabit Ethernet adapters based on the Intel 82540, 82541ER, 82541PI, 82542, 82543, 82544, 82545, 82546, 82546EB, 82546GB, 82547, 82571, 81572, 82573, and 82574 Ethernet controller chips. The driver supports Transmit/Receive checksum off- load and Jumbo Frames on all but 82542-based adapters. Furthermore it supports TCP segmentation offload (TSO) on all adapters but those based on the 82543, 82544 and 82547 controller chips. The identification LEDs of the adapters supported by the em driver can be controlled via the led(4) API for localization purposes. For further hardware information, see the README included with the driver. For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation supplied with your Intel PRO/1000 adapter. All hardware require- ments listed apply to use with FreeBSD. 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 16114. This driver version supports VLANs. The em 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 em 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).

LOADER TUNABLES
Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or stored in loader.conf(5). hw.em.rxd Number of receive descriptors allocated by the driver. The default value is 1024 for adapters newer than 82547, and 256 for older ones. The 82542 and 82543-based adapters can handle up to 256 descriptors, while others can have up to 4096. hw.em.txd Number of transmit descriptors allocated by the driver. The default value is 1024 for adapters newer than 82547, and 256 for older ones. The 82542 and 82543-based adapters can handle up to 256 descriptors, while others can have up to 4096. hw.em.rx_int_delay This value delays the generation of receive interrupts in units of 1.024 microseconds. The default value is 0, since adapters may hang with this feature being enabled. hw.em.rx_abs_int_delay If hw.em.rx_int_delay is non-zero, this tunable limits the maximum delay in which a receive interrupt is generated. hw.em.tx_int_delay This value delays the generation of transmit interrupts in units of 1.024 microseconds. The default value is 64. hw.em.tx_abs_int_delay If hw.em.tx_int_delay is non-zero, this tunable limits the maximum delay in which a transmit interrupt is generated.
FILES
/dev/led/em* identification LED device nodes
EXAMPLES
Make the identification LED of em0 blink: echo f2 > /dev/led/em0 Turn the identification LED of em0 off again: echo 0 > /dev/led/em0
DIAGNOSTICS
em%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: memory A fatal initialization error has occurred. em%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: interrupt A fatal initialization error has occurred. em%d: watchdog timeout -- resetting The device has stopped responding to the network, or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).

HISTORY
The em device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4.
AUTHORS
The em driver was written by Intel Corporation <freebsd@intel.com>.
BUGS
Hardware-assisted VLAN processing is disabled by default. You can enable it on an em interface using ifconfig(8).
