I'm not throughput limited but I've considered picking one up just for the experience of working with one in the homelab. Does anyone have any experience with these, any pitfalls or issues? Before spending the $ on ebay I'd like to know:

  • Will samba's gnutls integration offload to the card?
  • Has anyone used the SR-IOV functionality?
  • Is there additional patching required to leverage TLS offload?
Thanks in advance!
