Error I40E_AQ_RC_ENOSPC, forcing overflow promiscuous on PF

Hi!

Fresh install on Supermicro X11DPi-N(T) using Proxmox v6.1.

This message is looping through the log and saturates one core:
[ 911.977646] i40e 0000:60:00.1: Error I40E_AQ_RC_ENOSPC, forcing overflow promiscuous on PF
[ 955.642636] i40e 0000:60:00.1: Error I40E_AQ_RC_ENOSPC adding RX filters on PF, promiscuous mode forced on

The interesting part is, the PCI address is one of two links in a bond. The port is not connected / down (NO-CARRIER).

After about 20 minutes the logging stopped and the load is back to normal.

This bug report relates the problem to vlans:
https://sourceforge.net/p/e1000/bugs/575/

Indeed, I am using VLAN, actually QinQ.

I was unable to find some settings to adjust, any ideas?

Kind regards
Kevin

I had this error as well, from looking at the bug report I went ahead and changed the VLANS to only the ones I needed and this error then went away. I have the Supermicro X11SPM-TF motherboard. So I would agree with the bug report that it has to do with the X722 hardware VLAN capability.

What I did notice was odd, was that the version of the i40e driver, wasn't listed on the Intel site.

Code:
2.10.19.82 (latest)
2.10.19.30
2.9.21
2.8.43
2.7.29
2.7.26
2.7.12
2.7.11


Code:
lscip -nk
b5:00.0 0200: 8086:37d2 (rev 08)
        Subsystem: 15d9:37d2
        Kernel driver in use: i40e
        Kernel modules: i40e
b5:00.1 0200: 8086:37d2 (rev 08)
        Subsystem: 15d9:37d2
        Kernel driver in use: i40e
        Kernel modules: i40e

Code:
modinfo i40e | grep -i version

I see this as well..

But I have changed the network config to only specify the VLANs I am interested in via the bridge-vids option in /etc/network/interfaces, instead of all of them, since that Proxmox bug mentioned that X710 have limited VLAN resources.. and I haven't seen the issue in a few hours... at least. Time will tell I guess.

Code:
auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
   address 192.168.1.3/24
   gateway 192.168.1.1
   bridge-ports enp1s0f0
   bridge-stp off
   bridge-fd 0
   bridge-vlan-aware yes
   bridge-vids 42 69

I also got a card had the newest firmware already on it, which Proxmox and kernel 5.4 aren't the newest drivers, but I haven't tried, nor to i want to deal with, installing the latest driver from Intel's website (v3.3.x)..

Code:
[ 1.342348] i40e: Intel(R) Ethernet Connection XL710 Network Driver - version 2.8.20-k
[ 1.347833] i40e: Copyright (c) 2013 - 2019 Intel Corporation.

[ 1.423476] i40e 0000:01:00.0: The driver for the device detected a newer version of the NVM image v1.12 than expected v1.9. Please install the most recent version of the network driver.

Hi

I have a similar issue, but networking seems to work fine, I just don't like the logs:

Any thoughts?

Just set "offload-rx-vlan-filter off" in your bond config to solve the problem. Hardware is not able to handle it ;)
