Subject:   packet filtering via Chelsio NICs
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
Has anyone used the packet filtering features of the T520 and T540 cards
on FreeBSD ? Rather than use ipfw or pf, I am hoping to offload some of
the packet filtering to the features on the card. Does it save CPU
processing power in the end ? Is there a sweet spot to using it, or am I
better off using ipfw ? I am looking at dropping traffic in the 2-5Gb/s
range filtering out bogons and other bad packets.

Would appreciate any examples / caveats / tip on how to use it as the
docs are kind of sparse. Using it on RELENG_12
