Description

We should update the common code for ixgbe(7D) and add support for the X553 controller family which uses the MAC named the 'X550EM_a' family of MACs.

Updated by Robert Mustacchi over 2 years ago

To test this various folks in the community helped out:

  • Ryan Zezeski did basic regression testing of the X540 in situations that used link aggregations and vnics.
  • John Levon did basic regression testing of the X520.
  • The user, Ronan, who first brought up the X553 family on the list mentioned the following:

I just finished my tests in jumbo frames and all is working well. I didn't get any crashes or network disconnections after several TB of data transferred. I didn't had any problem with specific settings such as modified interrupt throttling or rx/tx specific ring size, neither with custom tcp buffers.
