Advance SRIOV features for NFVs for Service Providers and Telcos

Registered by Munish on 2018-05-17

Currently many VNFs are “migrated” from purposely built solutions into virtualized environments and often expect network interfaces (vNICs attached to SR-IOV VFs) to have properties like 802.1Q VLAN trunking, VLAN push/pop, security, mirroring, statistics, QoS, etc, we used to have in traditional switches.
This effort is an attempt to “fill the gap” by adding necessary functionality into NICs Linux kernel driver.
