Description radek.krejca 2014-09-13 20:24:15 UTC

I have problem with new boards from supermicro. There are 2 nics Intel pro, which supports multiqueue. I boot all freebsd boxes from the same image as diskless and all boxes are NATs with pf. Every box works perfectly, but only 2 new boxes with this board have problems. But I cannot say where.

Situation is following - after start is everything ok. But for some hours bigger streams are starting to disconnect. Bigger streams - it means stream about a few megabytes. Pages, mostly, work.

From one or second side is connection working - but problem is only traffic over pf or probably whole FBSD box.

I try to catch any communication. I dont know, if is this THE problem, but it looks that communication ends with this:

743	3.301279	TCP	54	[TCP ACKed unseen segment] 80→55859 [RST, ACK] Seq=699393 Ack=780 Win=17520 Len=0

There is nothing in logs. System looks fine and this is the same configuration which works fine elsewhere. I try to change board for others (but the same ser. no.) and problem is the same.

part of dmesg:

I dont know what I should check and test. Every looks fine, but not work...

After disabling multiqueue works every fine. U used 

Thank you

hw.igb.enable_msix=0  disables MSIX features which *does* disable multiqueue.  You can however, set hw.igb.num_queues=1 to use MSIX and only 1 queue.

Can you test this with 10.1 release and 10.2 release beta when available?

I'm unable to reproduce this and the submitter has timed out.
