 28.Dt JME 4
 29.Os
 30.Sh NAME
 31.Nm jme
 32.Nd JMicron Gigabit/Fast Ethernet driver
 33.Sh SYNOPSIS
 34To compile this driver into the kernel,
 35place the following lines in your
 36kernel configuration file:
 37.Bd -ragged -offset indent
 38.Cd "device miibus"
 39.Cd "device jme"
 40.Ed
 41.Pp
 42Alternatively, to load the driver as a
 43module at boot time, place the following line in
 44.Xr loader.conf 5 :
 45.Bd -literal -offset indent
 46if_jme_load="YES"
 47.Ed
 48.Sh DESCRIPTION
 49The
 50.Nm
 51device driver provides support for JMicron JMC25x PCI Express
 52Gigabit Ethernet controllers and JMicron JMC26x PCI Express Fast
 53Ethernet controllers.
 54.Pp
 55All LOMs supported by the
 56.Nm
 57driver have TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload for both transmit and receive,
 58TCP segmentation offload (TSO), hardware VLAN tag stripping/insertion
 59features, Wake On Lan (WOL) and an interrupt coalescing/moderation
 60mechanism as well as a 64-bit multicast hash filter.
 61.Pp
 62The JMC25x also supports Jumbo Frames (up to 9216 bytes), which can be
 63configured via the interface MTU setting.
 64Selecting an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the
 65.Xr ifconfig 8
 66utility configures the adapter to receive and transmit Jumbo Frames.
 67.Pp
 68The
 69.Nm
 70driver supports the following media types:
 71.Bl -tag -width ".Cm 10baseT/UTP"
 72.It Cm autoselect
 73Enable autoselection of the media type and options.
 74The user can manually override
 75the autoselected mode by adding media options to
 76.Xr rc.conf 5 .
 77.It Cm 10baseT/UTP
 78Set 10Mbps operation.
 79.It Cm 100baseTX
 80Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.
 81.It Cm 1000baseTX
 82Set 1000baseTX operation over twisted pair.
 83.El
 84.Pp
 85The
 86.Nm
 87driver supports the following media options:
 88.Bl -tag -width ".Cm full-duplex"
 89.It Cm full-duplex
 90Force full duplex operation.
 91.It Cm half-duplex
 92Force half duplex operation.
 93.El
 94.Pp
 95For more information on configuring this device, see
 96.Xr ifconfig 8 .
 97.Sh HARDWARE
 98The
 99.Nm
100device driver provides support for the following Ethernet controllers:
101.Pp
102.Bl -bullet -compact
103.It
104JMicron JMC250 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller
105.It
106JMicron JMC251 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet with Card Read Host controller
107.It
108JMicron JMC260 PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller
109.It
110JMicron JMC261 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet with Card Read Host controller
111.El
112.Sh LOADER TUNABLES
113Tunables can be set at the
114.Xr loader 8
115prompt before booting the kernel or stored in
116.Xr loader.conf 5 .
117.Bl -tag -width "xxxxxx"
118.It Va hw.jme.msi_disable
119This tunable disables MSI support on the Ethernet hardware.
120The default value is 0.
121.It Va hw.jme.msix_disable
122This tunable disables MSI-X support on the Ethernet hardware.
123The default value is 0.
124.El
125.Sh SYSCTL VARIABLES
126The following variables are available as both
127.Xr sysctl 8
128variables and
129.Xr loader 8
130tunables:
131.Bl -tag -width "xxxxxx"
132.It Va dev.jme.%d.tx_coal_to
133This variable sets the maximum amount of time to delay
134before sending a Tx completion interrupt, in microseconds.
135The accepted range is 1 to 65535; the default is 100 (100us).
136.It Va dev.jme.%d.tx_coal_pkt
137This variable sets the maximum number of outgoing packets which may be
138coalesced together into a single Tx completion interrupt.
139The accepted range is 1 to 255; the default is 8.
140.It Va dev.jme.%d.rx_coal_to
141This variable sets the maximum amount of time to wait for
142additional packets to arrive (for possible packet coalescing)
143before firing an Rx completion interrupt, in microseconds.
144The accepted range is 1 to 65535; the default is 100 (100us).
145.It Va dev.jme.%d.rx_coal_pkt
146This variable sets the maximum number of incoming packets which may be
147coalesced into a single Rx completion interrupt.
148The accepted range is 1 to 255; the default is 2.
149.It Va dev.jme.%d.process_limit
150This variable sets the maximum number of events that will be processed
151in a single batch before the handler is requeued into a taskqueue.
152The accepted range is 10 to 255; the default value is 128 events.
153The interface does not need to be brought down and up again before
154a change takes effect.

164.Sh HISTORY
165The
166.Nm
167driver was written by
168.An Pyun YongHyeon
169.Aq yongari@FreeBSD.org .
170It first appeared in
171.Fx 7.1 .
172.Sh CAVEATS
173The
174.Nm
175driver tries to avoid unnecessary station address reprogramming for
176controllers that use eFuse to store station address.
177The number of times that eFuse can be safely reprogrammed is 16 at
178most.
179In addition, there is no way to restore the factory default station
180address once the station address has been reprogrammed via eFuse.
181It is highly recommended not to reprogram the station address and
182it is the responsibility of the administrator to store the original station
183address in a safe place when station address is changed.
184.Pp
185There are two known 1000baseT link establishment issues with JMC25x.
186If the full mask revision number of JMC25x controller is less than
187or equal to 4 and the link partner enabled the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient
188Ethernet feature,  the controller will not be able to establish a
1891000baseT link.
190Also, if the length of the cable is longer than 120 meters, the controller
191can not establish a 1000baseT link.
192The known workaround for these issues is to force manual link
193configuration with 100baseTX instead of relying on auto-negotiation.
194The full mask revision number of controller can be checked with the
195verbose kernel boot option.
196Use the lower nibble of the chip revision number to get the
197full mask revision of the controller.
