Accelerated Virtual Interfaces

VNFs can be configured to use StarlingX AVP to improve throughput when compared to emulated virtual drivers.

The StarlingX OpenStack AVP virtual NIC is a shared memory based high performance networking device. Its potential maximum throughput is higher than other emulated virtual NIC devices (for example, e1000). For more information, see wrs-avp-pmd—Accelerated DPDK Network Drivers.
