      Hi experts,

       

      Is there any performance issue when configuring VLAN on a VF?

       

      I add a vlan via libvirt as below. i assume it is the same as "ip link set SOME-DEV vf 1 vlan 213"

          <interface type='hostdev' managed='yes'>

            <mac address='52:54:00:47:21:e0'/>

            <driver name='vfio'/>

            <source>

              <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x04' slot='0x10' function='0x1'/>

            </source>

            <vlan>

              <tag id='213'/>

            </vlan>

            <alias name='hostdev1'/>

            <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x0a' function='0x0'/>

          </interface>

       

      NIC is 82599ES.

       

      Thanks,

      Charto
