XL710 Stops Receiving Packets After a Particular PPPoE Packet

HI Everyone,

We are using XL710 hardware on Linux 4.1.20 kernel.

We have an issue where the following behavior is noticed.

  • When we send a simple loop back traffic to the XL710, it works fine.
  • When a specific PPPoE packet is sent from an external port to the XL710, on Linux we notice that the XL710 driver has no response. There is no interrupt is raised for this received packet.
  • After the above condition, XL710 stops receiving any packet.

Here is the packet contents for a good packet and the failing packet.

I can send any number of good packets, and XL710 is able to received it.

After I send a single failing packet, XL710 stop receiving packets. In fact, it does not receive even the good packets after this.

Good Packet:

Hi Sadashivan,

 

 

Thank you for posting at Wired Communities. What is the exact XL710 network adapter? Is it an onboard or standalone network adapter? What is the exact driver and firmware version?

 

 

Thanks,

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your response.

We have the XL710 as an onboard IC in our product.

a) Driver. We are using the XL710 driver from Linux 4.1.20 release.

b) Firmware. Here is the firmware details (obtained using the './intel-netdev-eeupdate /NIC=4 /ADAPTERINFO' command)

Firmware Version: FW:5.0 API:1.5

NVM Version: 5.02 MAP3.75

HI Sharon,

Sorry for the delay in getting back on this topic.

Yes, after the firmware update, things are working fine now.

Can you share some inputs on what are the fixes that may have made it work now?
