+Neterion's (Formerly S2io) Xframe I/II PCI-X 10GbE driver
+=========================================================
+
+Release notes for Neterion's (Formerly S2io) Xframe I/II PCI-X 10GbE driver.
+
+.. Contents
+  - 1.  Introduction
+  - 2.  Identifying the adapter/interface
+  - 3.  Features supported
+  - 4.  Command line parameters
+  - 5.  Performance suggestions
+  - 6.  Available Downloads
+
+
+1. Introduction
+===============
+This Linux driver supports Neterion's Xframe I PCI-X 1.0 and
+Xframe II PCI-X 2.0 adapters. It supports several features
+such as jumbo frames, MSI/MSI-X, checksum offloads, TSO, UFO and so on.
+See below for complete list of features.
+
+All features are supported for both IPv4 and IPv6.
+
+2. Identifying the adapter/interface
+====================================
+
+a. Insert the adapter(s) in your system.
+b. Build and load driver::
+
+	# insmod s2io.ko
+
+c. View log messages::
+
+	# dmesg | tail -40
+
+You will see messages similar to::
+
+	eth3: Neterion Xframe I 10GbE adapter (rev 3), Version 2.0.9.1, Intr type INTA
+	eth4: Neterion Xframe II 10GbE adapter (rev 2), Version 2.0.9.1, Intr type INTA
+	eth4: Device is on 64 bit 133MHz PCIX(M1) bus
+
+The above messages identify the adapter type(Xframe I/II), adapter revision,
+driver version, interface name(eth3, eth4), Interrupt type(INTA, MSI, MSI-X).
+In case of Xframe II, the PCI/PCI-X bus width and frequency are displayed
+as well.
+
+To associate an interface with a physical adapter use "ethtool -p <ethX>".
+The corresponding adapter's LED will blink multiple times.
+
+3. Features supported
+=====================
+a. Jumbo frames. Xframe I/II supports MTU up to 9600 bytes,
+   modifiable using ip command.
+
+b. Offloads. Supports checksum offload(TCP/UDP/IP) on transmit
+   and receive, TSO.
+
+c. Multi-buffer receive mode. Scattering of packet across multiple
+   buffers. Currently driver supports 2-buffer mode which yields
+   significant performance improvement on certain platforms(SGI Altix,
+   IBM xSeries).
+
+d. MSI/MSI-X. Can be enabled on platforms which support this feature
+   (IA64, Xeon) resulting in noticeable performance improvement(up to 7%
+   on certain platforms).
+
+e. Statistics. Comprehensive MAC-level and software statistics displayed
+   using "ethtool -S" option.
+
+f. Multi-FIFO/Ring. Supports up to 8 transmit queues and receive rings,
+   with multiple steering options.
+
+4. Command line parameters
+==========================
+
+a. tx_fifo_num
+	Number of transmit queues
+
+Valid range: 1-8
+
+Default: 1
+
+b. rx_ring_num
+	Number of receive rings
+
+Valid range: 1-8
+
+Default: 1
+
+c. tx_fifo_len
+	Size of each transmit queue
+
+Valid range: Total length of all queues should not exceed 8192
+
+Default: 4096
+
+d. rx_ring_sz
+	Size of each receive ring(in 4K blocks)
+
+Valid range: Limited by memory on system
+
+Default: 30
+
+e. intr_type
+	Specifies interrupt type. Possible values 0(INTA), 2(MSI-X)
+
+Valid values: 0, 2
+
+Default: 2
+
+5. Performance suggestions
+==========================
+
+General:
+
+a. Set MTU to maximum(9000 for switch setup, 9600 in back-to-back configuration)
+b. Set TCP windows size to optimal value.
+
+For instance, for MTU=1500 a value of 210K has been observed to result in
+good performance::
+
+	# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_rmem="210000 210000 210000"
+	# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_wmem="210000 210000 210000"
+
+For MTU=9000, TCP window size of 10 MB is recommended::
+
+	# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_rmem="10000000 10000000 10000000"
+	# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_wmem="10000000 10000000 10000000"
+
+Transmit performance:
+
+a. By default, the driver respects BIOS settings for PCI bus parameters.
+   However, you may want to experiment with PCI bus parameters
+   max-split-transactions(MOST) and MMRBC (use setpci command).
+
+   A MOST value of 2 has been found optimal for Opterons and 3 for Itanium.
+
+   It could be different for your hardware.
+
+   Set MMRBC to 4K**.
+
+   For example you can set
+
+   For opteron::
+
+	#setpci -d 17d5:* 62=1d
+
+   For Itanium::
+
+	#setpci -d 17d5:* 62=3d
+
+   For detailed description of the PCI registers, please see Xframe User Guide.
+
+b. Ensure Transmit Checksum offload is enabled. Use ethtool to set/verify this
+   parameter.
+
+c. Turn on TSO(using "ethtool -K")::
+
+	# ethtool -K <ethX> tso on
+
+Receive performance:
+
+a. By default, the driver respects BIOS settings for PCI bus parameters.
+   However, you may want to set PCI latency timer to 248::
+
+	#setpci -d 17d5:* LATENCY_TIMER=f8
+
+   For detailed description of the PCI registers, please see Xframe User Guide.
+
+b. Use 2-buffer mode. This results in large performance boost on
+   certain platforms(eg. SGI Altix, IBM xSeries).
+
+c. Ensure Receive Checksum offload is enabled. Use "ethtool -K ethX" command to
+   set/verify this option.
+
+d. Enable NAPI feature(in kernel configuration Device Drivers ---> Network
+   device support --->  Ethernet (10000 Mbit) ---> S2IO 10Gbe Xframe NIC) to
+   bring down CPU utilization.
+
+.. note::
+
+   For AMD opteron platforms with 8131 chipset, MMRBC=1 and MOST=1 are
+   recommended as safe parameters.
+
+For more information, please review the AMD8131 errata at
+http://vip.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/
+26310_AMD-8131_HyperTransport_PCI-X_Tunnel_Revision_Guide_rev_3_18.pdf
+
+6. Support
+==========
+
+For further support please contact either your 10GbE Xframe NIC vendor (IBM,
+HP, SGI etc.)
