The commands vicfg-module.pl (esxcfg-module.pl) allow for the configuration of VMkernel module options. In Update 2 of the ESXi 3.5 RCLI the command is currently not supported on VirtualCenter. Unlike esxcfg-module run at the console of an ESX host, the command vicfg-module.pl has no option to list modules. To get a list of modules for your ESXi host, download the file https://<ip/hostname/host/config.log (this file can also be retrieved with the vifs.pl command). If you're using the unsupported console, you can also run the command esxcfg-module -l or look at the file /var/log/config.log.

The vicfg-module.pl command has the following options

--get-options <module> (-g <module>) - retrieves the option string that the VMkernel will pass to the module when it loads it.

--set-options <option_string> <module> (-s <option_string> <module>) - set the option string that will be passed to the module when it is loaded.

Samples

To enable NetQueue on the s2io/ixgbe modules, run the following commands:

vicfg-module.pl -server <server> -s "intr_type=2 rx_ring_num=8" s2io
vicfg-module.pl -server <server> -s "InterruptType=2,2 VMDQ=16,16" ixgbe
