OK, maybe not ALL you ever wanted to know, but all we've shared with you up until now, all in one place!


It has been nearly 2½ years since I posted my first ever Blog, it was about

Setting up Red Hat 5.4 Xen* for SR-IOV using the Intel® 82576 GbE.  Since that time I’ve managed to post a blog now and then, usually pointing you to a new paper or video I’ve published.


The very smart fellow who is now responsible for the Intel Ethernet Virtualization technology has continued to write great documents on how to configure things such as SR-IOV in different environments.


So we have managed to accumulate a fairly nice list of documents and videos that talk about SR-IOV and one usage of it, Flexible Port Partitioning.


To make it easier for you, I’ve decided to compile a list of all these documents, videos and blogs in one place as a nice reference.  So without any more fanfare from me, here are the various docs that we have written:
