Description

It would be good to add into Flow Contol section of https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/hardware/tuning-and-troubleshooting-network-cards.html info about chelsio NICs, due one is often used with pfsense:
cxl.0.pause_settings=0 disabling flow control
cxl.0.pause_settings=3 return to default settings

History

#1 Updated by Ansley Barnes 2 months ago

It may also be good to recommend disablement of the non-router related resource allocations so the NIC can use its entire resource set for relevant functions:

hw.cxgbe.toecaps_allowed=0
hw.cxgbe.rdmacaps_allowed=0
hw.cxgbe.iscsicaps_allowed=0
hw.cxgbe.fcoecaps_allowed=0
