     ixgbe — Intel(R) 10Gb Ethernet driver for the FreeBSD operating system

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

	   device ixgbe

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


     The ixgbe driver provides support for PCI 10Gb Ethernet adapters based on
     the Intel 82598EB Intel(R) Network Connections.  The driver supports
     Jumbo Frames, MSIX, TSO, and RSS.

     For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documenta‐
     tion supplied with your Intel 10GbE 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 16114.

     This driver version supports VLANs.  For information on enabling VLANs,
     see ifconfig(8).

     The ixgbe driver supports the following cards:

     ·	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/AF Dual Port Server Adapter
     ·	 Intel(R) 10 Gigabit XF SR/LR Server Adapter
     ·	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AF Network Connection
     ·	 Intel(R) 82598EB 10 Gigabit AT CX4 Network Connection

     kernel with a supported adapter, email the specific information related
     to the issue to ⟨freebsdnic@mailbox.intel.com⟩.
