Description Vasily Ivanov 2010-10-20 06:00:20 UTC
Shortly after bringing up igb interfaces system panics. Screenshot: http://pix.academ.org/img/2010/10/20/35b6dd863e7099555ed84a616a97f0bb.jpg

This by far happened only with MSI-X enabled (default).

Hardware is SuperMicro X8DTL with dual Xeon X5650 and Intel Pro/1000ET QuadPort.

Turn off MSX-X in /boot/loader.conf : hw.igb.enable_msix=0

I have the same problem.
Please comment the lines in your /boot/loader.conf and run your tests again.

This doesn't seem to happen on my machines (I have almost identical SM hardware) on fbsd8 and fbsd10.  Is this still happeneing for you?
Comment 4 Eitan Adler freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-05-28 19:44:59 UTC
batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.
- Affects Base System OR Documentation


Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
