TG3 driver, Linux and Insight Manager Agents

Anyone using the TG3 NIC driver and getting it to show up in Insight Manager? I'm running Red Hat ES 2.1 on a DL380 G3 with all the HP agents.. Everything works fine except I only get a 'Virtual Nic' under the NIC section. If I load compile/load the BCM5700 driver from Compaq, I see the NC7781 Gigabye Adapter..

Re: TG3 driver, Linux and Insight Manager Agents

The tg3 driver doesnot create the /proc/net/nicinfo/.info file. I believe this is required by the Insight Manager agents. I don't have a setup handy to verify this.

I have a patch for the tg3 driver to report network staistics through /proc/net/nicinfo like the bcm5700 driver. I have used it with 0.97 and 1.0 versions of tg3. I can send it to you if you want to give it a try. What version of the tg3 driver are you using?

I definately interested. Send the patch, I'm using TG3 driver version 1.32.2.80 on Red Hat ES 2.1.

thanks..

Re: TG3 driver, Linux and Insight Manager Agents

I'll attach patches to tg3.c and tg3.h. These will apply cleanly to tg3 driver versions 0.97 and 1.0. I couldn't find an ES 2.1 distribution close by, so I couldn't verify that the patch applies correctly to your version of the driver as well. Let me know if you have any problems applying the patch.

Patch for tg3.c
