In this section

This section lists a number of HAL macros that were supported in the Green Bay 2 release but that are not supported for 4GA SmartNICs in the Link™ Capture Software 11.2 release.

Extended descriptor 9 macros

These macros retrieve information from not supported fields in extended packet descriptor 9 and will therefore return 0:

  • NT_NET_GET_PKT_DECODE_ERROR
  • NT_NET_GET_PKT_INNER_DECODE_ERROR

Other macros

These macros will not perform a checksum validation but will return 1 if the packet is a TCP, UDP or IP packet, respectively:

  • NT_NET_GET_PKT_TCP_CSUM_OK
  • NT_NET_GET_PKT_UDP_CSUM_OK
  • NT_NET_GET_PKT_IP_CSUM_OK
