Subject: [dpdk-dev] Alternatives to RSS on virtio-net devices
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 00:07:13 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20141014070713.GA17384@mhcomputing.net> (raw)


Having worked around the previously reported bizarre linker issues, I can now 
see this new error:

PMD: virtio_dev_start(): RSS cannot be configured for VirtI/O net devices

If I want to ensure that the flows are sent consistently to the same core on 
virtio-net to prevent surprises, what are my options?

Given these interfaces are probably slower than physical ones, is RX / TX from 
a single core a possibility? Distributor? What are people doing to get it to 
work? Is it better to use some other kind of interface like a fake virtual 
Intel NIC, where the RSS might be supported, instead?
