SRIOV Port SharingΒΆ

With SR-IOV port sharing, you can:

  • Create an SR-IOV interface on a VF capable port.

  • Create VF type sub-interfaces using the SR-IOV interface, and attach these sub-interfaces to data networks..

  • Create VLAN type interfaces using the SR-IOV interface, and attach them to OAM, internal management and cluster-host platform networks respectively.

  • Create ethernet type of sub-interfaces using an SR-IOV interface, and attach this interface to pxeboot network, which has to be untagged network.

By doing so, all of the network planes can be carried by only one VF-capable physical port according to following resource allocation:
