2.0.2 - Intel ethernet driver buggy?



  • Hardware running 2.0.1 since release with no issues.  Upgraded to 2.0.2

    We are seeing the problem described here frequently:  http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=21528

    Was the Intel em driver upgraded between 2.0.1 and 2.0.2?

    Looks like it was updated, but all indications from most people are that it improved.

    That thread you linked was for a much older version of FreeBSD so it isn't exactly relevant.

    Yes, I agree but seeing exactly the same messages over timeouts.

    Under 2.0.1 never a issue, put 2.0.2 on these two machines and now network card issues.

    I  have disabled msix on the nics and set the other tuning parameters indicated for e1000 (set the queue to 1, etc) in hopes it stabilizes this issue.
