APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If customer disables EITHER the cksum_udp or cksum_tcp
    ODM attributes, adapter-based receive packet checksum
    offload will be disable for BOTH TCP and UDP.  Because
    the default value for cksum_udp and cksum_tcp attributes
    is "yes", this issue impacts only customers who have modified
    one of these ODM attributes.  Observed symptom may be lower
    than expected receive performance.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If customer disables EITHER the cksum_udp or cksum_tcp
    ODM attributes, adapter-based receive packet checksum
    offload will be disable for BOTH TCP and UDP.  Because
    the default value for cksum_udp and cksum_tcp attributes
    is "yes", this issue impacts only customers who have modified
    one of these ODM attributes.  Observed symptom may be lower
    than expected receive performance.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modify receive path checksum offload enforcement algorithm
    so that it does not disable both TCP and UDP checksum
    offload if user requests only TCP or UDP offloads.
