in our server, we have the ethernet cards “Mellanox Technologies MT27710 Family [ConnectX-4 Lx]”, but we have installed the driver MLNX_OFED_LINUX-xxx, and I see below service started loading the drivers, only suitable driver module is mlx4_core/ mlx4_en/ mlx5_core to work.
and so far no issues, servers in the network and working fine without any issues, do we see any issues in the future ? my servers in the openstack cloud. do we need upload the unnecessary driver modules from kernel? if ib related drivers in kernel what will be the issue ?
I feel extra modules are in kernel.
