Silcom PEG6I (82571EB Based)



  • I am having issues with my new 6 port gigabit card. It is  a silcom PEG6I, based on an intel 82571EB chipset.
    I am currently running pfsense 2.0.1 on my box.
    Pfsense has no issues with the current intel quad card, using the igb driver. From what I am reading, it may be a driver issue with the new card.
    I read online somewhere that it requires the em driver. I edited the loader.conf file and added the em driver=yes flag( not sure the exact syntax, im away from that box right now) Anyways, pfsense still refuses to detect and use my card. Does anyone have any experience with this driver or card on pfsense?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks



  • Are the NICs on the Silcom card reported in the startup output? (post the output of the pfSense shell command dmesg if you aren't sure).

    I notice that Dell have a specific bios fix for this card.

    Steve



  • Here is my dmesg with the card installed.
    The MLB is a supermicro S7SLA-H
    No mention of my card as far as I can see. Could not find a newer bios update either.

    Hmm,
    Well my first thought was that perhaps the power requirements of the card might be too high for an Atom board but if it's detected in the bios…..

    Just to be sure it's this card we're talking about:
    http://www.silicom-usa.com/Product.aspx?Product=46&Category=50&ln=en

    Can you post the bios output? Perhaps use a serial console?

    The card looks to have three 82571EB dual NIC chips and a further large IC perhaps a bridge of some sort, maybe unsupported.

    Some basic stuff. Do you know the card works? Do you know the PCI-e slot works?

    Steve



  • The card was tested in ubuntu 10.04 on another system and works fine.
    The PCIE slot currently has a dual intel server nic that runs fine.
    Could be power draw, it does have a 200w PSU. I will check on that.
    Unable to get BIOS output right now, im away from the machine.



  • @stephenw10:

    The card looks to have three 82571EB dual NIC chips and a further large IC perhaps a bridge of some sort, maybe unsupported.

    This card almost certainly will have a PCI Express bridge with 3 active downstream buses and one chip connected to each bus.

    It is strange the bridge is not visible. Perhaps the BIOS disables the bridge (Atom related restriction?) or the card wasn't correctly seated in the slot.

    @dwabraxus:

    The card was tested in ubuntu 10.04 on another system and works fine.

    Can you boot a "live CD" Ubuntu system on the box with the Silicom card inserted to see if Ubuntu can find it?



  • I just recently picked up the same card hoping it would work with my 1U Atom setup. I can confirm the PEG6I card is not detected by the SuperMicro X7SLA-H http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/ATOM/945/X7SLA.cfm?typ=H. I have tried the latest BIOS 1.0C and all settings, I not sure why, but the card is not detected at all.

    I did try the card in two different AMD 600 series motherboards and got the same results. The only system I had that would see the card was my Dell PowerEdge T100 Xeon E3120 tower and it was recognized by pfSense 2.0.1 x64. The card does seem to have a special PCIe bridge chip on the card, "PLX Technologys PEX8517".

    I was a bit hyped to get the card, but now I'm a not sure what to do with it…...

    Tim



  • Hrm, I just ordered one based on the article on servethehome.com, but looks like no one has had any luck with it and pfSense  :(


  • Netgate Administrator

    It looks to me as though there may be some low level incompatibility with this card.
    It's not showing up in POST on a some boards.
    Dell had to issue a bios update specifically for compatibility with the card.

    There maybe a BSD work around if you can see it in the bios, however I've not found any reference to it.

    Steve

    Edit: Having read the review at ServeTheHome it's obviously working for a lot of people.  :-\

    Edit: Tyan also issued a bios fix for this card:

    Fixed PCI-E PEG6 LAN card IRQ and shadow RAM resource conflict issue

    If it is a resource conflict then try turning off everything you don't need in the bios. You may have some luck by manually playing with the resource assignment in the bios but that's beyond my skills!



  • Off topic, but can you run this from a slot that is only x4 electrically? I have a spare x16 port that runs at x4, and this would make a good addition to my particular setup if it would work.



  • @erack:

    Hrm, I just ordered one based on the article on servethehome.com, but looks like no one has had any luck with it and pfSense  :(

    erack,

    The PEG6i works just fine with pfSense 2.0.1. I believe the issue lies more with the card and motherboard compatibility issue.

    I willing to mail one to a Sr Forum member for testing if needed, i have 2 cards :( , just pm me.



  • @Gluon99:

    I willing to mail one to a Sr Forum member for testing if needed, i have 2 cards :( , just pm me.

    A generous offer but probably not needed. I suspect the problem is in the BIOS. Would you (Gluon99) please post the output of the pfSense command

    pciconf -l

    from the system with one of the PEG6I cards and identify the make and model of that system or motherboard.

    As previously discussed, the chip appears to have a PLX PCI-E bridge with three downstream Intel dual port NICs. However in @dwabraxus:

    there is no sign of the PLX PCI-E bridge (all the listed PCI devices are Intel except for the two Realtek NICs; notice most devices have a chip code ending in 8086, the code for Intel). Either something has been inadvertently omitted from the output OR the device is not connected into the PCI device tree OR the upstream bridge for the card hasn't been configured for downstream devices. I have seen some systems whose BIOS has ignored PCI bridges in the device tree EXCEPT those in the chipset, including some laptops whose BIOS hasn't configured PCI devices downstream of PCMCIA bridges. One workaround MIGHT be to configure the BIOS for a NON PLUG N PLAY operating system. (FreeBSD, at least up to 7.1 which was the last one in which I looked deeply into these details, is not a plug n play OS in that it expects all the PCI device resource allocation to be done by the BIOS.)

    So, I suggest the original poster should see if there a BIOS setting for non plug n play operating systems and if so, try that. If that doesn't work or there is no such BIOS setting then if someone seeing the problem is prepared to provide the output from a few shell commands I'll gather information and write up a bug report for the system (or motherboard) manufacturer.



  • Output from SuperMicro X7SLA-H motherboard with BIOS 1.0c. I tried disabling all onboard adapters (serial,nics), PnP OS and random options. I havent been able to get the SM board to detect the PEG6i, but maybe I'm still missing something in the BIOS settings..

    Im thinking i need to open an online support case with SuperMicro. Is there anyway to know if the Atom chipset is the limiting factor for the PEG6i not being detected?



  • @Gluon99:

    Is there anyway to know if the Atom chipset is the limiting factor for the PEG6i not being detected?

    Not that I know of but I haven't read the datasheet. It is possible there is some limitation (feature) in the chipset preventing support of downstream bridges. (I have seen reports that Atom chipsets are or were "crippled" to prevent them competing with "desktop" chipsets.) But I thought I saw a report in this thread that someone had run Linux and it had detected the six NICs where FreeBSD didn't. If my recollection is correct then the problem on that motherboard is not a hardware limitation.

    @Gluon99:

    Im thinking i need to open an online support case with SuperMicro.

    I agree. The information you have provided so far has been useful, lets get a little more. Please post the output from execution of the following commands pfSense shell commands run on the SuperMicro system:

    pciconf -r pci0:0:28:0 0:0x3f
    pciconf -r pci0:0:28:4 0:0x3f
    pciconf -r pci0:0:28:5 0:0x3f

    These commands will provide information about how the three PCI bridges in the chipset have been configured. The startup output from the SuperMicro motherboard suggests the second and third bridges are used to interface to the two onboard Realtek NICs.



  • Here are the commands you asked for wallabybob, let me know if you want anything else. These messages are a bit cryptic to me, but i will look them up later. Im curious to know what the output means. My *nix is a bit weak.

  • The Silcom PEG6I has a PLX 8715 PCI Express bridge which appears in the PCI device tree as one "upstream" (closest to the CPU) PCI bridge with three downstream PCI bridges. Each of the downstream PCI bridges is connected to a single Intel NIC chip with two PCI functions, each PCI function providing a single Ethernet interface. Each of the downstream PCI bridges requires a distinct PCI bus number so the devices downstream of them can be addressed. The upstream bridge therefore requires at least four downstream bus numbers (one for each of the downstream bridges and one for the bus interconnecting the bridges).

    From the FreeBSD startup report of its walk of the PCI device tree we see there are three PCI bridges, two of which are used to connect to the board LANs leaving the bridge at device=28 function=0 for interfacing to the expansion slot device, in this case a Silcom PEG6I. A dump of the PCI configuration registers of this bridge shows:

    $ pciconf -r pci0:0:28:0 0:0x3f
    27d08086 00100104 06040001 00810010
    00000000 00000000 00010100 200000f0
    0000fff0 0001fff1 00000000 00000000
    00000000 00000040 00000000 00060110

    The byte at offset 0x14 is 0, the upstream bus number of the bridge, the byte at offset 0x15 is 0x01, the first secondary (downstream) bus number and the byte at offset 16 is 0x01, the maximum secondary bus number. Hence this bridge has been allocated insufficient secondary bus numbers to allow access to the NICs on the card. The bridge also has its memory window base and top registers and i/o window base and top registers programmed to prevent memory and i/o register access to downstream devices.

    FreeBSD is not a plug and play operating system; that is FreeBSD relies on the BIOS to perform PCI device resource allocation.
    The failure of the BIOS to allocate PCI resources to devices downstream of a bridge on an expansion card makes this otherwise attractive motherboard unsuitable for some users of the FreeBSD operating system and the pfSense package.

    I hope the above explanation has sufficient technical detail or the people supporting the BIOS on the motherboard without being too technical for the well informed reader.

    Spot on I'd say, very informative.  :)

  • Good explination Wallabybob. Do you think this could be fixed via a BIOS update from SM or its is a phy limitation of the board itself?



  • @Gluon99:

    A BIOS update would appear to be necessary to fix this. I don't know enough about the hardware to say if it would be sufficient. I have seen reports hinting of restrictions placed on Atom based boards (e.g. no PCI-Express slots on early Atom boards, at most one expansion slot etc) so there may be a hardware limitation but I read in this thread that all the NICs had been recognised when running Linux but maybe it wasn't clear that it was Linux running on this type of board. If Linux running on this board finds all the NICs and can drive them then there is no limitation in the hardware that would stop FreeBSD finding all the NICs and driving them - it just needs the BIOS to initialise the PCI bridges (both in the chipset and on the card) so FreeBSD can find the NICs when it walks the PCI device tree.

    Frankly, I think it is poor form to provide an expansion slot and be silent about the fact that certain combinations of cards and operating systems won't work in the slot. There is a precedent with 4GB memory - plenty of motherboard manufacturers say you can't use more than about 3GB of RAM with 32 bit Operating Systems and are quite upfront about max size of memory.

    Has any of this code made it into 8.3 I wonder:
    http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arch/2011-April/011268.html
    It seems to be addressing this issue. Or at least a similar one.  ;)

    Thanks for the reference. After reading the whole thread it does look as if it addresses at least a similar issue. I suggest trying a pfSense 2.1 snapshot build. If that isn't very convenient you could send an email to John Baldwin referencing the thread and this discussion and ask if the code is in FreeBSD 8.3 and does it address this issue.


  • Netgate Administrator

    Look like it made it into the code base some time ago. A while before the 8.3 branch point.

  • Some time this week I will try a 2.1 x64 snapshot and see what happens.



  • Finally got around to trying the latest 2.1 x64 snapshot, but still no luck with the card. I also tried Ubuntu 11.10 x64 live and it would not detect the card. Seems to be more of a BIOS issue, maybe i will write up a support email to supermicro about the PEG6i and see what happens.

    Thanks for your help wallabybob



  • Since this probably won't be fixed in a timely manner, anyone have a recommendation for another 4-6 port Intel-chipset NIC that is compatible with the SuperMicro Atom boards?

    And if anyone has one they want to sell, I'll trade the PEG6I for it.



  • It might be worth asking SuperMicro if any multi-port boards with Intel NICs are supported on their Atom motherboards running FreeBSD.

    It might be worth asking Silcom if the PEG6I is supported on any SuperMicro Atom motherboards running FreeBSD.



  • I sent SuperMicro some emails with the above questions a few weeks ago, but no responses  >:(

    I'm hoping someone here has added a 2-4 port NIC to a SuperMicro Atom with success and can recommend it here

    I'm using a DELL G174P 2port Intel card. The version i have is using the newer Intel Pro ET chip. There are two version of this card from what I could tell, newer Intel Pro ET has no heatsink on the chip and older PT has a heat sink. I have been using the card as my LAN interface for several months with multiple vlans and haven't noticed any issues yet.

    This is what pfSense 2.0.1 detected the card as.

    The post from Gluon99 reminded me that I have seen hints of Intel chips packing 4 NICs into the one chip. Investigations a few years ago suggested some of the Intel 2 port and 4 port boards might have all the NICs in a single chip. I suspect the absence of a bridge will enable such boards to work with the Super Micro motherboards.
