We are in the process of ordering few servers and we think to ask here first for any known issues with same.
BTW...company policy requires only Dell servers. Yes, I know...kinda snob^^
Purpose for this server will be firewall (we are using PF with stateful rules) and custom kernel with NIC pooling compiled.
We hope this baby will deliver up to 800Mbps per NIC (4).
One thing is that Dell is not certifying Intel Gigabit NIC with FreeBSD.
Since in the kernel we have only
'device em # Intel PRO/1000 adapter Gigabit Ethernet Card'
Does this include also below specified device?
Is any of you using Intel® PRO 1000VT Quad Port Gigabit NIC?
Is kernel pooling option compatible or working with Intel® PRO 1000VT Quad Port Gigabit NIC?
Appreciate any feedback or suggestion about same.
