Re: HEADS UP: em/igb/ixgbe reverted to older drivers

SWEET!

I'll update to a newer snapshot next week.  Right now I'm in the middle of trying to migrate about 55TB of data from two failed storage arrays...

So the good news is that it's not crashing any more.

The bad news is that I still seem to be hitting a pretty hard wall at ~2.1Gbit/s across 10Gb ix interfaces (tried both SFP+ Direct Attach and Intel SR optics with a 1M OM3 patch).  Anyone have any thoughts on that?  It's 2.1Gbit/s of TOTAL throughput, not in each direction. 
I can break anything.

Shouldnt the first post and/or the thread title be edited to tell that the issue is now fixed and the drivers will be included in 2.1.1 then?

Is there a way we can monitor major changes like this in drivers?  Normally we would just follow the pfsense-tools git branch but I don't see that anymore.
