vmxnet3(9) vmware kernel module


modprobe vmxnet3


This is a Linux kernel device driver module that drives VMware's second fast networking device. As it is backed by real (virtual) hardware, it should be automatically loaded by hotplug or udev as needed. Unlike the older 'vmxnet' hardware, the 'vmxnet3' hardware does not morph and as such the modprobe-related logic isn't necessary.


More information about vmxnet3 and the Open VM Tools can be found at <http://open-vm-tools.sourceforge.net/>.


Open VM Tools were written by VMware, Inc. <http://www.vmware.com/>.
