CONFIG_R8169_NAPI: Use Rx Polling (NAPI) (EXPERIMENTAL)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_R8169_NAPI has multiple definitions:

Use Rx Polling (NAPI) (EXPERIMENTAL) found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_R8169_NAPI:

Help text

NAPI is a new driver API designed to reduce CPU and interrupt load when the driver is receiving lots of packets from the card. It is still somewhat experimental and thus not yet enabled by default.

If your estimated Rx load is 10kpps or more, or if the card will be deployed on potentially unfriendly networks (e.g. in a firewall), then say Y here.

If in doubt, say N.
