ENA(4)                DragonFly Kernel Interfaces Manual                ENA(4)


ena - DragonFly kernel driver for the Elastic Network Adapter (ENA) family


To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device ena Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_ena_load="YES"


The ENA is a networking interface designed to make good use of modern CPU features and system architectures. The ENA device exposes a lightweight management interface with a minimal set of memory mapped registers and extendable command set through an Admin Queue. The driver supports a range of ENA devices, is link-speed independent (i.e., the same driver is used for 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, etc.), and has a negotiated and extendable feature set. Some ENA devices support SR-IOV. This driver is used for both the SR-IOV Physical Function (PF) and Virtual Function (VF) devices. The ENA devices enable high speed and low overhead network traffic processing by providing multiple Tx/Rx queue pairs (the maximum number is advertised by the device via the Admin Queue), a dedicated MSI-X interrupt vector per Tx/Rx queue pair, and CPU cacheline optimized data placement. The ena driver supports industry standard TCP/IP offload features such as checksum offload and TCP transmit segmentation offload (TSO). Receive- side scaling (RSS) is supported for multi-core scaling. The ena driver and its corresponding devices implement health monitoring mechanisms such as watchdog, enabling the device and driver to recover in a manner transparent to the application, as well as debug logs. Some of the ENA devices support a working mode called Low-latency Queue (LLQ), which saves several more microseconds. This feature will be implemented for driver in future releases.


Supported PCI vendor ID/device IDs: * 1d0f:0ec2 - ENA PF * 1d0f:1ec2 - ENA PF with LLQ support * 1d0f:ec20 - ENA VF * 1d0f:ec21 - ENA VF with LLQ support


Device initialization phase: ena%d: failed to init mmio read less Error occurred during initialization of the mmio register read request. ena%d: Can not reset device Device could not be reset; device may not be responding or is already during reset. ena%d: device version is too low Version of the controller is too low and it is not supported by the driver. ena%d: Invalid dma width value %d The controller is able to request dma transaction width. Device stopped responding or it demanded invalid value. ena%d: Can not initialize ena admin queue with device Initialization of the Admin Queue failed; device may not be responding or there was a problem with initialization of the resources. ena%d: Cannot get attribute for ena device rc: %d Failed to get attributes of the device from the controller. ena%d: Cannot configure aenq groups rc: %d Errors occurred when trying to configure AENQ groups. Driver initialisation/shutdown phase: ena%d: PCI resource allocation failed! ena%d: allocating ena_dev failed ena%d: failed to pmap registers bar ena%d: Error while setting up bufring ena%d: Error with initialization of IO rings ena%d: can not allocate ifnet structure ena%d: Error with network interface setup ena%d: Failed to enable and set the admin interrupts ena%d: Failed to allocate %d, vectors %d ena%d: Failed to enable MSIX, vectors %d rc %d ena%d: Error with MSI-X enablement ena%d: could not allocate irq vector: %d ena%d: Unable to allocate bus resource: registers Resource allocation failed when initializing the device; driver will not be attached. ena%d: ENA device init failed (err: %d) Device initialization failed; driver will not be attached. ena%d: could not activate irq vector: %d Error occurred when trying to activate interrupt vectors for Admin Queue. ena%d: failed to register interrupt handler for irq %ju: %d Error occurred when trying to register Admin Queue interrupt handler. ena%d: Cannot setup mgmnt queue intr Error occurred during configuration of the Admin Queue interrupts. ena%d: Enable MSI-X failed Configuration of the MSI-X for Admin Queue failed; there could be lack of resources or interrupts could not have been configured; driver will not be attached. ena%d: VLAN is in use, detach first VLANs are being used when trying to detach the driver; VLANs should be detached first and then detach routine should be called again. ena%d: Unmapped RX DMA tag associations ena%d: Unmapped TX DMA tag associations Error occurred when trying to destroy RX/TX DMA tag. ena%d: Cannot init RSS ena%d: Cannot fill indirect table ena%d: Cannot fill indirect table ena%d: Cannot fill hash function ena%d: Cannot fill hash control ena%d: WARNING: RSS was not properly initialized, it will affect bandwidth Error occurred during initialization of one of RSS resources; device is still going to work but it will affect performance because all RX packets will be passed to queue 0 and there will be no hash information. ena%d: failed to tear down irq: %d ena%d: dev has no parent while releasing res for irq: %d Release of the interrupts failed. Additional diagnostic: ena%d: Cannot get attribute for ena device This message appears when trying to change MTU and driver is unable to get attributes from the device. ena%d: Invalid MTU setting. new_mtu: %d Requested MTU value is not supported and will not be set. ena%d: keep alive watchdog timeout Device stopped responding and will be reset. ena%d: Found a Tx that wasn't completed on time, qid %d, index %d. Packet was pushed to the NIC but not sent within given time limit; it may be caused by hang of the IO queue. ena%d: The number of lost tx completion is aboce the threshold (%d > %d). Reset the device If too many Tx wasn't completed on time the device is going to be reset; it may be caused by hanged queue or device. ena%d: trigger reset is on Device will be reset; reset is triggered either by watchdog or if too many TX packets were not completed on time. ena%d: invalid value recvd Link status received from the device in the AENQ handler is invalid. ena%d: Allocation for Tx Queue %u failed ena%d: Allocation for Rx Queue %u failed ena%d: Unable to create Rx DMA map for buffer %d ena%d: Failed to create io TX queue #%d rc: %d ena%d: Failed to get TX queue handlers. TX queue num %d rc: %d ena%d: Failed to create io RX queue[%d] rc: %d ena%d: Failed to get RX queue handlers. RX queue num %d rc: %d ena%d: failed to request irq ena%d: could not allocate irq vector: %d ena%d: failed to register interrupt handler for irq %ju: %d IO resources initialization failed. Interface will not be brought up. ena%d: LRO[%d] Initialization failed! Initialization of the LRO for the RX ring failed. ena%d: failed to alloc buffer for rx queue ena%d: failed to add buffer for rx queue %d ena%d: refilled rx queue %d with %d pages only Allocation of resources used on RX path failed; if happened during initialization of the IO queue, the interface will not be brought up. ena%d: ioctl promisc/allmulti IOCTL request for the device to work in promiscuous/allmulti mode; see ifconfig(8) for more details. ena%d: too many fragments. Last fragment: %d! Packet with unsupported number of segments was queued for sending to the device; packet will be dropped.
