Doug Burks commented on the interface setup gist:

Hi Justin,

Regarding the ethtool invocation, I seem to remember an issue with certain NICs where the command might fail when trying to set multiple options at one time.


"You can set multiple options in one "ethtool" command, but this can be problematic if your card doesn't support all of the settings."

Here is what we do in Security Onion that has been working well for a few years now:

for i in rx tx sg tso ufo gso gro lro; do ethtool -K $IFACE $i off; done

Hope that helps!
