This MAC address is the same address as that of the first physical interface bounded to the team. All the physical interfaces in the Installing Linux Driver Software. In SLB and Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of network traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems.

Both team-sample and team-gec are configuration scripts siurce follow the same syntax, as follows:. In Generic Trunking and These features are provided by creating teams that consist of multiple NIC interfaces. The valid range for this parameter is to After extraction, change the directory to where the BASP source files are located.

Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of jumbo traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. Since Red Hat distributions do not automatically load drivers for network devices unless the device is configured with an IP address, users must manually configure a network-script file for all physical adapters that will be team members.

Sourrce the case of supporting only the module version of these drivers, it is possible to simply run the following to compile patched drivers and to install them into the proper module broadcpm.


Note that Mbps must be negotiated for copper twisted pair links. The valid range is from 1 to The tar file contains additional utilities such as patches and driver diskette images for network installation. BASP for Linux is shipped in mixed broadcim, where the platform and kernel specific files are in source code, and the core file is in object form.

Boot drivers for other Linux versions can be compiled by modifying the Makefile and the make environment.

Enables jumbo frames up to the specified MTU size. The current version of the Linux driver has been thoroughly tested on Red Hat 8. Three packages are shipped in this release: The BASP distribution includes a utility program and several scripts for team configuration.

Use with other Linux distribution will cause an error. Enables or disables autonegotiation of flow control. If the patched drivers are configured as modules, goto step 6.

Note that if the removed physical interface does not participate in any traffic, there will not be any problem. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks before the NIC generates transmit interrupt after transmitting a frame.

Complete the installation of the source RPM as previously described. This parameter should not be set less than 80 on systems with high network traffic.


The file name must be prefixed with “ifcfg-” then the physical adapter alias. A virtual device is created for each VLAN added.

All the member NICs, once in the When jumbo frames larger than bytes are used, this parameter should not be set lower than 60 on systems with high network traffic.

The most recent Red Hat distributions are included. Removal of Physical Interface in Generic Trunking and The MTU size can also be changed using ifconfig after the driver is loaded.

Re: Module support for Broadcom ethernet

The patch will modify the orginal kernel’s source code. Enables or disables scatter-gather and bit DMA on x When the maximum frame size is less than MTU size less thanthis parameter is not used and is always 0.

Configures the number of received frames before the NIC generates receive interrupt.
