Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 5/09 U7 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
All Platforms

Goal

Solaris[TM] 10 Update 7 (5/09) includes support for:

CR 6776113 "define NXGE_MSIX_REQUEST_1G 4 required to fix bottlenecks".

This will expand the number of DMA channels/interrupts (to 4 per NIC) on 1Gb nxge ports, and up to 8 per NIC for 10Gb nxge ports.
