10Gbps network adapter

#1

Post by withanHdammit » 17 Apr 2018 22:34

I have a Supermicro X10DRH-iT and am running Nas4Free 11.0.0.4 - Sayyadina (revision 4383).

The server has 2 onboard NIC's that I'm using but they are restricted to 1Gbps and I'd like to go to 10Gbps but want some help determining if a certain card will work with NAS4Free.

The card I'm looking at is AOC-CTG-i2S, spec list is at http://www.supermicro.com/products/acce ... TG-i2S.cfm, manual is http://www.supermicro.com/manuals/other/AOC-CTG-i2S.pdf, and the datasheet is http://www.supermicro.com/manuals/other ... TG-i2S.pdf. The manual and datasheet both say it supports FreeBSD, but I'd like an independent confirmation.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

As i can see in Driver Readme(Supermicro), ixgbe driver should supports all 82599 chipsets, which this card has.
ixgbe works fine here with my Intel X540@10Gbe.
So should be fine.
Maybe if the Freebsd Driver is older, you must use the BSD Driver from Supermicro, but this is no Problem,

i have seen now your boards has dual x540 onboard, they should work out of the box 10ge.
can you plz post the output of:(goto Tools-> command)

Code: Select all

pciconf -lv | grep X540
and

Code: Select all

ifconfig

how they are connected to what?(switch other pc......)

Thanks @jasch, I thought I read the same thing about the onboard NICs supporting 10Gbps, but had only seen that in fiber and TwinAx/DAC, so I wasn't certain I was reading that correctly.

Here's the result:

Code: Select all

$ pciconf -lv | grep X540
    device     = 'Ethernet Controller 10-Gigabit X540-AT2'
    device     = 'Ethernet Controller 10-Gigabit X540-AT2'
and (note IP's & MAC's obscured)

Code: Select all

$ ifconfig

They are currently connected to a 1Gbps switch which obviously explains why they're only running at 1Gbps LOL, but my intention now is to get some 10GBase-T RJ45's for my core switch stack and connect them at 10Gbps (in a LAG or LACP), instead of an add-on card and using TwinAx/DAC for the connections.
