xge -- Neterion Xframe-I Ten Gigabit Ethernet driver SYNOPSIS
xge* at pci? dev ? function ? DESCRIPTION
The xge device driver supports the Neterion Xframe-I LR Ethernet adapter, which uses a single mode fiber (1310nm) interface. The Xframe supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware, as well as TCP Segmentation Offloading (TSO) and hardware VLAN handling. The driver currently does not support the hardware VLAN feature. See ifconfig(8) for information on how to enable TSO and hardware checksum cal- culation. DIAGNOSTICS
xge%s: failed configuring endian, %llx != %llx! The Xframe could not be turned into the correct endian operation. This is most likely a hardware error. xge%d: failed allocating txmem. xge%d: failed allocating rxmem. The computer has run out of kernel memory. xge%d: adapter not quiescent, aborting xge%d: ADAPTER_STATUS missing bits %s The Xframe could not be turned into a usable state. Most likely an Xframe hardware error. xge%d: cannot create TX DMA maps xge%d: cannot create RX DMA maps This error is either a kernel error or that the kernel has run out of available memory. xge%d: bad compiler struct alignment, %d != %d The compiler did not align the structure correctly. This is a compiler problem. SEE ALSO

There should be an XGMII framework for the driver to use. BSD

nxge -- Neterion Xframe 10GbE Server/Storage adapter driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device nxge Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_nxge_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The nxge driver provides support for Neterion Xframe-I and Xframe-II adapters. The driver supports TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO/LSO), Large Receive Offload (LRO), Jumbo Frames (5 buffer mode), Header Separation (Rx 2 buffer mode), VLAN, and Promiscuous mode. For general information and support, please visit the Neterion support page 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 transmit and receive Jumbo Frames. Xframe adapters support Jumbo Frames up to 9600 bytes. For Jumbo Frames, the driver will try to allocate physically contiguous buffers. Failures to do so may degrade the performance. To resolve such problems, please visit where additional information and a kernel patch can be found. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8). HARDWARE
