To implement VF RSS using ixgbevf driver. Customer wants to know how to turn on RSS support on ixgbevf.
Using 3.3.2 ixgbevf in guest and 5.0.4 ixgbe on host. I noticed that even though there are two RX queues for each VF, but pretty much all the packets go to the first RX queue. The RSS related features are also not supported. How to turn on the RSS support on ixgbevf? If it does not support RSS, what's the point having multiple queues in ixgbevf?
To help customer, can I please request
So kindly requesting as
The limitation for VF RSS on Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller is: The hash and key are shared among PF and all VF, the RETA table with 128 entries is also shared among PF and all VF; So it could not to provide a method to query the hash and reta content per VF on guest, while, if possible, please query them on host(PF) for the shared RETA information.
