Release Quality – Recommended for First Time Users. Download Legacy FreeNAS 11.3-U5. Legacy Download. FreeNAS 11.3 requires a 64-bit CPU and a minimum of 8GB RAM. Finding hardware powerful enough to support ZFS, yet compact and affordable enough for home or small office use is no easy feat. IXsystems met the challenge with the FreeNAS Mini, pound for pound the most robust storage system ever built in a small form factor.Equipped with 16GB-32GB of ECC RAM, a low power 8-Core 2.4GHz Intel Processor, dual Gigabit network, remote management.

We are trying to investigate that issue now, but haven't got far yet. You may try to update NICs firmware, I think there may be one available from Intel, ans in both case it change anything or not -- it would be a useful input. If not, you could ping Intel, since we are using the latest driver version available in FreeBSD. I see some newer driver version of the Intel site, but for some reason it is still not imported to FreeBSD head, while AFAIK they have FreeBSD committers.

I have updated the adapter and created an Intel Community post. As of this writing, there has not been a response. Intel telephone support was a frustrating experience and ultimately a waste of time.

I've created a patch merging latest ixl(4) driver(s) version(s) from the Intel site (1.9.5 for physical, and 1.5.2 for virtual interfaces). More tests are still need to be done, but so far the error was no longer reproduced after the update.

This bug is still there.

I have a 2x Supermicro 2-Port SFP+ Intel 10GbE LAN card PCI-e LP X710 DA, and the driver loaded is the 1.9.9-k.
I have attached a screenshoot of the server display by IPMI, and the daily security run output.

Whats done is enabling TSO, then all the interfaces are up & down.
Then we start seeing the interrupts, and the LAG is working har to keep the link up,
as it constantly switches between the NIC´s

and you can see its fluctuating , with txcsum up and down,
looks like the NIC resets it self and its settings.

This is reproduced also in FreeBSD Bugs ( https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=221919 )
They got it working on the ixl driver 2.1.0-k .

The latest driver from Intel is 3.3.6 , and is found here ( https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/14688/Intel-Network-Adapters-Driver-for-PCIe-10-Gigabit-Network-Connections-Under-FreeBSD- )

Is it possible to Update the intel driver in 11.2-U3 ?

#11 Updated by Dru Lavigne almost 2 years ago

Andreas: please open a new ticket so we can investigate that driver on the 11.2 series.

#12 Updated by Alexander Motin almost 2 years ago

See Full List On Github.com

Andreas, FreeNAS 11.2 includes latest version of the driver present in FreeBSD stable/11 branch -- 1.9.9-k. Version 2.1.0 in FreeBSD 12 uses iflib KPI and can not be merged down. I haven't checked intel site myself, but the driver you are pointing to seem to be ixgbe, not ixl.

#13 Updated by Andreas Martin Aanerud almost 2 years ago

Ill create a new bug on the newest branch tomorrow morning ( 22.00 here. )

The intel drivers are for both ixgbe and ix, it compiles 3 different drivers and manuals.

I did create a jail, and made the driver there... and I did not however manage to unload the pci/ix with kldunload -i ID , so every time I tried to kldload the if_ixl.ko file that where made from the make processes , it stated that it crashed with the pci/ix
