    Some questions on 82576 and VM

    Fang

      Hi,

       

      Is there any performance difference between passing the whole 82576 Gigabit Ethernet or passing just a VF of the Ethernet into a VM, given just one interface is needed in the VM? The OS is linux. BTW, can we pass the PF into a VM?

       

      We have a sever with two Intel 82576 Gigabit Ethernet integrated. Have to use the VF from the 1st Ethernet for a VM. In order to do that, "max_vfs=x" parameter is used to load the module. Is there a way to only create VF for the 1st 82576 but not for the 2nd one?

       

      Thx in advance!

       

      Regards,

      Tian
