Doc about hardware offloading unclear
I read in the docs the following:
Another item to check is under System > Advanced on the Networking tab. Ensure that the boxes are checked for Disable hardware TCP segmentation offload and Disable hardware large receive offload.
Regarding LRO there is an explanation- some drivers are broken. Well, could we get a list of driver which are broken?
Regarding TCP segmentation offload- why is it considered to be faster when this is DISabled?
I just do not understand why offloading tasks to hardware should slow down processing....
Thanks for explaining me!
It's explained in the doc that covers the page where the settings are:
tl;dr they are faster if you are an endpoint but slower when acting as a router/firewall.
Thanks a lot! I have not seen this in the docs.
Sorry, my bad.
Anywayys- great information and explanation on the place you linked.
Going to disable now ;)
