Network device TX interrupts
I have encountered a problem with TX packet bursts which overwhelm low cost switches ( when transferring UDP from Gig to 100 net ).
As I understand the TX & RX are controlled by an interrupt generated by the network device. on regular working mode the interrupts are generated on received packets or by some scheduler mechanism.
The issue which is not clear to me: is it possible to control the TX interrupt from kernel network stack or is it controlled entirely by the network device?
