IPsec Crypto Offload on Crypto Enabled BF-3

The BF-3 info:
$ sudo mstvpd 86:00.0
ID: BlueField-3 P-Series DPU 200GbE/NDR200 dual-port QSFP112, PCIe Gen5.0 x16 FHHL, Crypto Enabled, 32GB DDR5, BMC, Tall Bracket
PN: 900-9D3B6-00CV-AA0

Using ethtool, I see that the esp-hw-load is set to off:
$ sudo ethtool -k ens5f0np0 | grep esp-hw-offload
esp-hw-offload: off [fixed]

Is the esp-hw-offload value correct for the BF-3 model that I have?
I’m asking because the bandwidth I see between 2 BF-3s with an IPsec VPN is only 5 Gbps ( VPN setup per IPsec Crypto Offload - NVIDIA Docs). Also, I do not see the message “mlx5e: IPSec ESP acceleration enabled” in the dmesg output.

If it’s pertinent, the BF-3s are using firmware v32.38.3056.

Thank you

the fix value of esp-hw-offload, is caused by OS version, please try to use the newer OS(like rhel 9.4).
And for offload esp-hw-offload should be on

Thank you
