I am checking the listing of supported network adapters and see the
100 is supported. My vendor has for the same price 10/100/1000 Intel
cards, but I don't see they are directly supported. I checked the fxp
and found the quote below. My question is, does this mean the dual
*should* be supported?
intel gigE cards are not fxp. they are em(4).
basically all intel gigE cards should work. very new ones might only
work in -current.
Sorry if this is mildly off-topic...
I've been testing throughput on a CARP setup using old hardware and a
bunch of fxp (82557) cards. I've noticed that traffic halts once
interrupt traps hit between 18k-20k (note, this has nothing to do with
CARP, it's the effect of passing packets across dual homed). Would it
be feasible to expect that the em gigE cards will handle this load?
