CXGB(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual CXGB(4)NAMEcxgb — Chelsio T3 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
kernel configuration file:
To load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in
The cxgb driver supports Transmit/Receive checksum offload, Jumbo Frames,
TCP segmentation offload (TSO), Large Receive Offload (LRO), VLAN hard‐
ware insertion / extraction, and VLAN checksum offload. For further
hardware information, see http://www.chelsio.com/.
For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documenta‐
tion supplied with your Chelsio T3 adapter. All hardware requirements
listed apply to use with FreeBSD.
Support for Jumbo Frames is provided via the interface MTU setting.
Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility con‐
figures the adapter to receive and transmit Jumbo Frames. The maximum
MTU size for Jumbo Frames is 9000.
For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
The cxgb driver supports 10 Gigabit and 1 Gigabit Ethernet adapters based
on the T3 and T3B chipset:
· Chelsio 10GBase-CX4
· Chelsio 10GBase-LR
· Chelsio 10GBase-SR
Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or
stored in loader.conf(5).

If an issue is identified with the released source code on the supported
kernel with a supported adapter, email the specific information related
to the issue to ⟨firstname.lastname@example.org⟩.
