The default behavior of the driver previously assumed a static InterruptThrottleRate value of , providing a good fallback value for all traffic types, but lacking in small packet performance and latency. To eliminate the potential for the hang, ensure that InterruptThrottleRate is set no greater than 75, and is not set to 0. This workaround skips resetting the Phy at shutdown for the initial silicon releases of ICH8 systems. Interrupt Throttling Rate array of int parm: Some Intel gigabit adapters that support Jumbo Frames have a frame size limit of bytes, with a corresponding MTU size limit of bytes.

Join Date Apr Beans 2. May we please see, when it stops working: This is a 3rd party limitation.

This value coincides with the maximum Jumbo Frames size of This parameter is also affected by the VMDq parameter in that it will limit the queues more. It looks like you’re trying to install the ethernet drivers, not the wireless drivers, can you confirm which set you are trying to install? Internal stress testing with jumbo frames shows the reliability on some and devices is improved in certain corner cases by disabling the Early Receive feature.

Linux Driver for Intel® Gigabit Network Connections

Node 0-n 0 – n: Step 5 message is: Sign up using Email and Password. As this value decreases one may want to consider increasing the TxDescriptors value to maintain the same amount of frame memory.


A whitepaper containing information on how to best configure your platform is available figabit the Intel website. When a spoofed packet is detected the PF driver will send the following message to the system log displayed by the “dmesg” command:.

Networking Drivers “disappear” Ubuntu LTS – Ask Ubuntu

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. Plugged into a normal port, all linuux well. Defines the direction in which data is allowed to flow. Copyright c – Intel Corporation.

I read any forum but not solution. For more information about the InterruptThrottleRate parameter, see the application note at: In addition, the controller is automatically reset, restoring the network connection.

CONFIG_E1000E: Intel(R) PRO/1000 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support

If during this process you are asked for the driver or module name, the name for the Linux Base Driver for the Gigabit family of adapters is e Allows changing the interrupt mode at module load time, without requiring a recompile.

This is caused by the neetwork the Linux kernel reports this stressed condition.

Useful only if RxIntDelay is non-zero, this value ensures that an interrupt is generated after the initial packet is received within the set amount of time. Enables or disables DMA Coalescing feature.


Intel® Network Adapter Driver for PCIe* Intel® Gigabit Ethernet Network Connections Under Linux*

The board advertises all supported speed and duplex combinations, and it links at the highest common speed and duplex mode IF the link partner is set to auto-negotiate. In order to limit the CPU utilization without impacting the overall throughput, we recommend that you load the driver as follows: EEE support requires autonegotiation.

Right, those are for the ethernet wired adapter, not the wireless. Unfortunately, sudo lshw still showed the intekr version of the driver. For connecgion driver version, in order to enable WoL, the e driver must be loaded prior to shutting down or suspending the system.

If traffic falls in the “Low latency” or “Lowest latency” class, the InterruptThrottleRate is increased stepwise to DecemberI’m setting up an Ubuntu Some Intel gigabit adapters that support Jumbo Frames have a frame size limit of bytes, with a corresponding MTU size limit of bytes.

If both Duplex and the link partner are set to auto-negotiate, the board auto-detects the correct duplex.
