     vxge - Neterion X3100 10GbE Server/Storage adapter driver

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device vxge

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):


     The vxge driver provides support for Neterion X3100 adapters.  The driver
     supports TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO/LSO), Large Receive Offload (LRO),
     Jumbo Frames, Receive Traffic Hash (RTH), VLAN, Promiscuous mode and
     Multi function mode.

     The vxge driver supports the following function modes:

           SF1_VP17 - 1 function with 17 VPATHs

           MF8_VP2 - 8 functions with 2 VPATHs per function

           MF2_VP8 - 2 functions, 8 Paths/Function

           MF4_VP4 - 4 Functions, 4 Paths/Function

           MF8P_VP2 - 8 functions with 2 VPATHs per function required for

     For general information and support, please visit the Neterion support

     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.  X3100
     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).
