    Multicast and SR-IOV

    SteveCo

      I am testing RHEL 6.4 VMs (ixgbevf 2.6.0-k driver) on RHEL 6.5 Hypervisor (KVM with the ixgbe3.15.1-k driver) using SR-IOV .  I have a high-rate multicast application and it appears that every VM is receiving the packets for every multicast packet going into the PF, whether the VM associated with the VF registered for that multicast address or not.  Does anyone know if we have something misconfigured?    Is there anyway to configure the PF to only forward the multicast packets to VFs that registered for particular multicast addresses?

       

      Thanks!
