Before Onload network and kernel drivers can be built and installed the system must support a build environment capable of compiling kernel modules. Refer to Build Dependencies for more details.

  1. Download the onload-<version>.tgz file from the NIC Software and Drivers web page.
  2. Unpack the tar file using the tar command:
    # tar -zxvf onload-<version>.tgz
  3. Run the onload_install command from the onload-<version>/scripts subdirectory:
    # ./onload-<version>/scripts/onload_install

Refer to Driver Loading - NUMA Node to ensure that drivers are affinitized to a core on the correct NUMA node.
