NAME
     ixg -- Intel(R) 10Gb Ethernet driver

SYNOPSIS
     ixg* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION
     The ixg driver provides support for PCI 10Gb Ethernet adapters based on the Intel(R) 82598EB
     and 82599 10 GbE Controllers.  The driver supports Jumbo Frames, TCP Segmentation Offload
     (TSO).

     For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation supplied with
     your Intel 10GbE adapter.	All hardware requirements listed apply to use with NetBSD.

     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.  On NetBSD, the maximum MTU size for Jumbo Frames is 9000 bytes.

     This driver version supports VLANs.  For information on enabling VLANs, see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE
     The ixg driver supports the following cards:

     o	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/AF Dual Port Server Adapter
     o	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/LR Server Adapter
     o	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AF Network Connection
     o	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AT CX4 Network Connection

DIAGNOSTICS
     ixg%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: memory  A fatal initialization error has occurred.

     ixg%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: interrupt	A fatal initialization error has
     occurred.

     ixg%d: watchdog timeout -- resetting  The device has stopped responding to the network, or
     there is a problem with the network connection (cable).

HISTORY
     The ixg device driver comes from FreeBSD, where it is called ixgbe(4).  It first appeared in
     NetBSD 6.0.

AUTHORS
     The ixg driver was written by Intel Corporation <freebsdnic@mailbox.intel.com>.  It was
     imported from FreeBSD into NetBSD by
     David Young <dyoung@NetBSD.org>.

BUGS
     The hardware supports a maximum MTU of 16114 bytes, but the NetBSD port of the driver sup-
     ports only 9000 bytes.

     The hardware supports Message-Signalled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X) and Receive-Side Scaling
     (RSS), however, these features are not enabled in the NetBSD driver at this time.
