+
+Enabling the driver
+===================
+
+The driver is enabled via the standard kernel configuration system,
+using the make command::
+
+  make oldconfig/menuconfig/etc.
+
+The driver is located in the menu structure at:
+
+  -> Device Drivers
+    -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y])
+      -> Ethernet driver support
+        -> Pensando devices
+          -> Pensando Ethernet IONIC Support
+
+Configuring the Driver
+======================
+
+MTU
+---
+
+Jumbo frame support is available with a maximim size of 9194 bytes.
+
+Interrupt coalescing
+--------------------
+
+Interrupt coalescing can be configured by changing the rx-usecs value with
+the "ethtool -C" command.  The rx-usecs range is 0-190.  The tx-usecs value
+reflects the rx-usecs value as they are tied together on the same interrupt.
+
+SR-IOV
+------
+
+Minimal SR-IOV support is currently offered and can be enabled by setting
+the sysfs 'sriov_numvfs' value, if supported by your particular firmware
+configuration.
+
+Statistics
+==========
+
+Basic hardware stats
+--------------------
+
+The commands ``netstat -i``, ``ip -s link show``, and ``ifconfig`` show
+a limited set of statistics taken directly from firmware.  For example::
+
+  $ ip -s link show enp181s0
+  7: enp181s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
+      link/ether 00:ae:cd:00:07:68 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
+      RX: bytes  packets  errors  dropped overrun mcast
+      414        5        0       0       0       0
+      TX: bytes  packets  errors  dropped carrier collsns
+      1384       18       0       0       0       0
+
+ethtool -S
+----------
+
+The statistics shown from the ``ethtool -S`` command includes a combination of
+driver counters and firmware counters, including port and queue specific values.
+The driver values are counters computed by the driver, and the firmware values
+are gathered by the firmware from the port hardware and passed through the
+driver with no further interpretation.
