Traffic filtration using NIC capabilities

Like Intel cards have ethtool

So… do mellanox do that too? - if it is possible?

How to do it?

where to download the tool?

I’m using now MCX516A-CCAT CX-5


Ethtool can be used with Mellanox adapters and in most cases, the version of ethtool provided by various distributions is sufficient. However, there is a version customized for certain options/features unique to Mellanox adapters included with MLNX_OFED. Once MLNX_OFED is installed, it can be found in the /opt/mellanox/ethtool/ directory.

In cases where usage of the utility diverges from common usage in ways that are unique to Nvidia/Mellanox adapters or their drivers, the “Ethtool” section of the MLNX_EN and MLNX_OFED User Manual will have more information. There are also examples of the flow-steering capabilities in the “Flow Steering” section.

The download package and User Manual for the latest versions of the MLNX_OFED driver can be found at the following link:
