Not sure if I am doing something on the user end that initiates a change. If CPU utilization is not a concern, use default driver settings. This will impart the greatest chance for your system to consume less power. We recommend the newer 2. If the bytes per second rate is approximately equal, the interrupt rate will drop as low as interrupts per second. This example applies to the Red Hat distributions; other distributions may store this setting in a different location. For this driver version, in order to enable WoL, the ee driver must be loaded prior to shutting down or suspending the system.

EEE saves energy by putting the device into a low-power state when the link is idle, but only when the link partner also supports EEE and after the feature has been enabled during link negotiation.
As an example, if you install the igbvf driver for two Gigabit adapters eth0 and eth1 and want to set the interrupt mode to MSI-X and MSI respectively, add the following to modules. I think this removes the old version and adopts the new one, two commands on one line:.
The “lshw” command says that installed driver is 2. For situations where low latency is vital such as cluster or grid computing, the algorithm can reduce latency even more when InterruptThrottleRate is set to mode 1.
Degradation in throughput performance may be observed in some Jumbo frames environments. Am able to get wireless occasionally on reboot, and haven’t found any pattern so far as to why.
The install location listed above is the default location.
I’m not sure what is going on that the networking would sometimes not work and once in awhile start working. Do not use MSI-X with the 2.
Multiqueue In this mode, a separate MSI-X vector is allocated for each queue and one for “other” interrupts such as link status change and errors. The Linux Base Drivers support the 2.

LRO combines multiple Ethernet frames into a single receive in the stack, connwction potentially decreasing CPU utilization for receives. Setting InterruptThrottleRate to netwprk turns off any interrupt moderation and may improve small packet latency, but is generally not suitable for bulk throughput traffic. Sign up using Email and Password. The time now is Interrupt moderation must be used to avoid interrupt storms while the driver is processing one interrupt.
This has a possible negative performance impact, which may be compensated for by allocating more descriptors using the TxDescriptors module parameter.
This value delays the generation of receive interrupts in units of 1. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
Networking Drivers “disappear” Ubuntu LTS – Ask Ubuntu
After updating Ubuntu again networking is not working at all Additional Configurations Configuring the Driver on Different Distributions Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is distribution dependent. On the same pc, windows 7 works perfectly, so I guess that it’s a driver issue.
Multiqueue is off by default. The driver has two adaptive modes setting 1 or 3 in which it dynamically adjusts the InterruptThrottleRate value based on the traffic that it receives.

Sign up using Email and Password. The two other lines, I don’t understand either what they are doing.
Can be either one or two-directional. When setting RxIntDelay to a value other than 0, adapters may hang stop transmitting under certain network conditions. Restarting the system appears to be the only remedy. When igbvf is loaded with default settings and multiple adapters are in use simultaneously, the CPU utilization may increase non-linearly. A descriptor describes a data buffer and attributes related to the data buffer.
If you encounter the problem in an adapter, and the chipset is an based one, you can verify that your adapter needs the fix by using ethtool:. There is a known issue using Jumbo frames when connected to a Foundry BigIron switch.
