Network interfaces should be configured according to the Solarflare Server Adapter User’s Guide.

When the interface(s) have been configured, the dmesg command will display output similar to the following (one entry for each Solarflare interface):

sfc 0000:13:00.0: INFO:  eth2 Solarflare Communications NIC PCI(1924:803)
sfc 0000:13:00.1: INFO:  eth3 Solarflare Communications NIC PCI(1924:803)
Note: IP address configuration should be carried out using normal OS tools, such as system-config-network (Red Hat) or yast (SUSE).
Note: The performance_profile driver module option must not be set to throughput when using Onload.
