SR-IOV is a device virtualization technology, it’s mainly used for improving network performance of virtual machines. However, SR-IOV has some limitations which come from hardware and/or driver implementation. For certain use case, such as Network Function Virtualization(NFV), those limitations are critical to provide services. Intel 10Gb NIC, Niantic(82599), has such limitations(e.g. VLAN filtering, multicast promiscuous) for NFV use case.
This presentation will show the limitations and issues and how they are being addressed, then explain how implements VF multicast promiscuous mode support in ixgbe driver and VF trust, iproute2 functionality enhancement.
