HATM(4) MidnightBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual HATM(4)

NAME

hatm — device driver for Fore/Marconi HE155 and HE622 ATM interfaces

SYNOPSIS

device hatm
device utopia
device atm

options NATM

DESCRIPTION

The hatm device driver supports the FORE (now Marconi) HE155 and HE622 ATM interface cards. The driver interfaces with the natm(4) framework, netgraph(4) and the HARP ATM stack. It provides only PVC services. Signalling, ATMARP, ILMI and other higher layer protocols are implemented using netgraph(4) or HARP.

For configuring the card for IP see natmip(4).

The following sysctls are recognized by the driver additionally to those handled by utopia(4):

hw.atm.hatm.natm_traffic

This is the traffic type to be used for NATM pvc connections. The type of this variable is integer and it must have one of the values 0 (UBR) or 1 (CBR).

hw.atm.hatm.natm_pcr

This is the peak cell rate to be used for NATM CBR connections.

hw.atm.hatmN.stats

Contains an array of uint32_t with device specific statistics.

hw.atm.hatmN.istats

Contains an array of uint32_t with internal driver statistics.

hw.atm.hatmN.debug

(Only if debugging enabled.) These are the debugging flags. See src/sys/dev/hatm/if_hatmvar.h for the possible flags.

hw.atm.hatmN.tsr

(Only if debugging enabled.) This is an array containing all transmission status registers. For each of the 4096 possible VCCs there are 15 32-bit registers.

hw.atm.hatmN.tpd

(Only if debugging enabled.) This is an array containing all on card current transmission packet descriptors. For each of the 4096 possible VCCs there are 16 32-bit registers.

hw.atm.hatmN.mbox

(Only if debugging enabled.) This is an array containing the mbox registers.

hw.atm.hatmN.cm

(Only if debugging enabled.) This is an array containing all connection memory registers. The first 32-bit integer of this array is the ABR base address.

hw.atm.hatmN.heregs

(Only if debugging enabled.) This is an array containing all card registers including SUNI and the FLASH ROM.

hw.atm.hatmN.lbmem

(Only if debugging enabled.) Returns the contents of the local memory.

The driver supports the media options sdh, noscramb and unassigned (see utopia(4)).

ENVIRONMENT

When attaching to a device the driver checks the kernel environment (see kenv(1)) to see if the default queues sizes should be overwritten or not. The following variables are checked and interpreted as unsigned integer values (in either radix):

hw.hatmN.rbps0_size

Size of the small receive buffer pool 0. This pool is used for all except raw AAL connections. The pool size must be a power of two between 4 and 8192 inclusive. When attaching the driver allocates this number of mbufs.

hw.hatmN.rbps0_thresh

Interrupt threshold for small receive buffer pool 0. When the number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

hw.hatmN.rbpl0_thresh

Size of the large receive buffer pool 0. This pool is used for all except raw AAL connections. The pool size must be a power of two between 4 and 8192 inclusive. When attaching the driver allocates this number of mbufs with clusters.

hw.hatmN.rbpl0_thresh

Interrupt threshold for large receive buffer pool 0. When the number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

hw.hatmN.rbrq0_size

Size of receive buffer return queue 0. This queue is used to return buffers filled with received frames to the driver. The size must be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

hw.hatmN.rbrq0_thresh

Interrupt threshold for receive buffer return queue 0. This threshold should only be triggered in exceptional cases.

hw.hatmN.rbrq0_tout

Interrupt timeout for receive buffer return queue 0. An interrupt is generated after this time if the queue is not empty. The number is in internal card ticks.

hw.hatmN.rbrq0_pcnt

Packet count threshold for receive buffer return queue 0. An interrupt is generated if this number of packets is in the queue.

hw.hatmN.rbps1_size

Size of the small receive buffer pool 1. This pool is used for all raw AAL connections. The pool size must be a power of two between 4 and 8192 inclusive. When attaching the driver allocates this number of mbufs.

hw.hatmN.rbps1_thresh

Interrupt threshold for small receive buffer pool 1. When the number of free buffers in the pool falls below this threshold it generates an interrupt so that the driver can refill the pool.

hw.hatmN.rbrq1_size

Size of receive buffer return queue 1. This queue is used to return buffers filled with received cells to the driver. The size must be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

hw.hatmN.rbrq1_thresh

Interrupt threshold for receive buffer return queue 1. This threshold should only be triggered in exceptional cases.

hw.hatmN.rbrq1_tout

Interrupt timeout for receive buffer return queue 1. An interrupt is generated after this time if the queue is not empty. The number is in internal card ticks.

hw.hatmN.rbrq1_pcnt

Packet count threshold for receive buffer return queue 0. An interrupt is generated if this number of cells is in the queue.

hw.hatmN.irq0_size

Size of interrupt queue 0. This must be a number between 1 and 1023 inclusive.

hw.hatmN.irq0_thresh

Interrupt retrigger threshold of interrupt queue 0. A new interrupt is trigger if the queue fill state reaches this threshold and the interrupt was no served.

hw.hatmN.tbrq0_size

Transmit buffer return queue 0 size. This queue is used to feed back empty buffers of transmitted frames back to the driver. It must be a power of 2 between 1 and 4096 inclusive.

hw.hatmN.tbrq0_thresh

Transmit buffer return queue 0 threshold. An interrupt is generated if the queue fill state reaches this point.

hw.hatmN.tpdrq_size

Transmit descriptor ready queue size. This queue is used by the driver to feed transmit descriptors into the card. The size must be a power of 2 between 1 and 16384 inclusive.

hw.hatmN.tpdmax

Maximum number of active TPDs per connection. This controls the maximum number of outstanding packet chunks per connection and thus the maximum delay packets can have because of queueing on the adapter. If set to 0, a connection can eat up all available TPDs.

hw.hatmN.mbuf_max_pages

Maximum number of memory pages allocated to small external mbufs. This must not be zero and not larger than 65536.

CAVEATS

When putting a HE155 into a 64-bit 66MHz PCI slot the machine may hang. This occurs very early in the POST so that even the display does not turn on. The HE155 runs only in 33MHz slots (either 32 or 64-bit). HE622 cards work just fine in 64-bit slots.

The driver may not work with bounce buffer, because of bus_dmamap_sync(9) missing the offset and len arguments the NetBSD function has.
