Detailed Description


This is the most current release of the ixgbe driver for Linux, which supports kernel versions 2.6.18 up through 5.11.2. It also has been tested on the following distributions:

  • RHEL* 7.9
  • RHEL 8.3
  • SLES* 12sp5
  • SLES 15sp2
  • Ubuntu*19.04
  • Ubuntu 20.04

Changes in this release:

  • Added support for 5.11.2 kernel version
  • Fix calculate BW for MTU from 4088 to 9128
  • Fix ethtool stats reporting
  • Enable MDD when SRIOV is disabled
  • Various bug fixes

Note that while we attempt to keep the driver version number (5.11.3) in sync with its counterpart in the Linux* kernel that has similar functionality, this is far from authoritative. If you are using a newer kernel or distro it is likely that its ixgbe driver is at least as up to date as the out of tree (OOT) driver found here.
