QAT in Xeon D-2166NT

Hello all,

I'm trying to use QAT on linux (Ubuntu), with Intel Xeon D-2166NT. It's documentation states that, it supports QAT (Quick Assist Technology).
I am following Building Software Acceleration Features in the Intel® Quick Assist Technology (Intel® QAT) Engine fo... .

which states:

To make use of the software acceleration features in the Intel QAT Engine for OpenSSL, you’ll need a system that supports Intel® AVX-512 with the following instruction set extensions:

AVX512F
AVX512_IFMA
VAES
VPCLMULQDQ

 

I tried 

 

cpuid -1 | egrep 'VAES|VPCLM|GFNI|AVX512F|AVX512IFMA'

 

to check the support for these instructions but I am getting following output,

 

AVX512F: AVX-512 foundation instructions = false
AVX512IFMA: fused multiply add = false
GFNI: Galois Field New Instructions = false
VAES instructions = false
VPCLMULQDQ instruction = false

 

can I enable these instructions or is there any way to use "Software Acceleration Features in the Intel® Quick Assist Technology (Intel® QAT) Engine for OpenSSL* 1.1.1" ?
