The different values of this variable reflect the most meaningful combinations of port parameters. RLMT uses the link state reported by the adapter hardware for each individual port to determine whether a port can be used for all network traffic or not. None No interrupt moderation is applied on the adapter card. Enables or disables the use of autonegotiation of port B of an adapter card. The sk98lin also supports large frames also called jumbo frames.

Enables or disables the use of sk98lni of port B of an adapter card. In addition, the duration of the moderation interval has a fixed length that never changes while the driver is operational.
I’ve put the sk98lih on my website for you. Note that the drawback of using interrupt moderation is an increase of the round- trip-time RTTdue to the queuing and serving of interrupts at dedicated moderation times. In addition to the switches inside the network, all network adapters that are to be used must also be enabled regarding jumbo frames.

CheckLocalPort In this mode, RLMT monitors the network path between the two ports of an adapter by regularly exchanging packets between them. This parameter can be used to set the flow control capabilities sk98pin port reports during auto-negotiation. Hi Lloyd, It will be 6. CheckSeg Check local port and segmentation: Marvell 88E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. On the other hand, selecting a very short moderation time might compensate the use of any moderation being applied.
This parameter determines the length of any interrupt moderation interval. Does anyone know of a solution to the driver problem? If your driver works I would be most grateful for it, however can you also give me some real simplistic instructions on how to install it, cos marvepl be honest, I don’t have a clue.
The default MTU size is and can be changed up to bytes. OnOff or Sense whereas On is the default.
This mode supports the same functions as the CheckLocalPort mode and additionally checks network segmentation between the ports. If loading is finished, any desired IP address can be assigned narvell the respective eth[x] interface using the ifconfig 8 command. This mode requires a network configuration in which the two ports are able to “see” each other i.
RLMT uses the link state reported by the adapter hardware for each individual port to determine whether a port can be used for all network traffic or not. Quite some switches support large frames, but need to be configured to do so. I will try the modprobe thing just to be sure later when I get back to marvfll PC. None No interrupt moderation is applied on the adapter card.
I have the driver on my system and I’m running 6. This parameter is used sk98in force the preferred port to A or B on dual-port network adapters.
This parameters states how RLMT should monitor both ports. To try it out do the following from the command prompt: Interrupt moderation is employed to limit the maximum number of interrupts the driver has to serve.
Those files are named eth[x] whereas x is the number of the interface that has been assigned to a dedicated port by the system. It is valid only for Yukon copper adapters. It is not part of the 6.

This parameter is valid only for Base-T adapter cards. Usually, the speed is negotiated between the two ports during link establishment. Let me know how you go. Therefore, each transmit or receive interrupt is served immediately as soon as it appears on the interrupt line of the adapter card.
It contains generic information about the adapter card plus a detailed summary of all transmit and receive counters. This obsolete driver was removed from the kernel in version 2.
