ixgbe can not work in IntMode=2(MSI-X)

Hi! all

I use 82599EN with 10Gbps SFP module. I measre through put and the result is 1.3Gbps.

I would like to improve through put, so I would like to use MSI-X.

I enter "insmod ixgbe.ko IntMode=2". The result is below,

This driver fail to start because of "Failed to allocate MSI-X interrupts. Err: -28".

Could you tell the reason which occurs "Failed to allocate MSI-X interrupts. Err: -28" ?

Hi Taira,

 

 

Thank you for the post. I will check on this, can you also provide below info:

 

1) what is the brand and model of the fiber optical module use?

 

2) Is this an onboard NIC 82599EN ? What is the brand and model of your system?

 

3) Did you install the VF Linux driver

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18700/Network-Adapter-Virtual-Function-Driver-for-10-Gigab...

 

4) Try run the command 'lspci -v' to show device with MSI or MSI-X capabilities

 

 

5) Try run lspci -t' gives the list of bridges. Please check

 

/sys/bus/pci/devices/*/msi_bus will to find out whether MSIs are enabled or disabled

 

 

Thanks,

Hi! wb

Sorry for my late reply. I answer your quesstions.

1) what is the brand and model of the fiber optical module use?

The SFP module which I use is FINISAR FTLX8573D3BTL.

2) Is this an onboard NIC 82599EN ? What is the brand and model of your system?

Yes. 82599EN is implemented on our original board. The board is not commercial.

3) Did you install the VF Linux driver

No,I use ixgbe driver, not ixgbevf driver.

4) Try run the command 'lspci -v' to show device with MSI or MSI-X capabilities

I attached the result.

5) Try run lspci -t' gives the list of bridges. Please check

/sys/bus/pci/devices/*/msi_bus will to find out whether MSIs are enabled or disabled

lspci -t result:

-[0000:00]---00.0-[01]----00.0

cd /sys/bus/pci/devices

I find 2 directories, 0000:00:00.0 and 0000:01:00.0.

In 0000:00:00.0, 1 is written in msi_bus.

In 0000:01:00.0, msi_bus is empty.
