Hello All,

We are trying run Pktgen DPDK using intel XL710 in Sriov mode but facing an error.

Openstack . Host A and B contain Intel XL 710 card in back to back mode.
NIC: Intel XL710

Driver info for PCI cards in Host:
ethtool -i ens1f0
driver: i40e
version: 1.4.25
firmware-version: 6.01 0x800036ea 1.1861.0
bus-info: 0000:81:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: yes
supports-eeprom-access: yes
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: yes

Sriov driver in VM:
              driver: iavf
firmware-version: N/A
bus-info: 0000:00:04.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: no
supports-eeprom-access: no
supports-register-dump: no
supports-priv-flags: no

DPDK Version: 18.11.1
Pktgen Version: 3.7.1

Test scenario:

  1.  We are deploying multiple VMs in host A and B and doing Sriov passthrough.
  2.  Each VM contain a Sriov port from the same PF.
  3.  From both end Pktgen DPDK is running inside the VMs in parallel.
  4.  VMs in Host A are the sender and in Host B are receiver and are paired one to one i.e, VM0 in host A will send packets to VM0 in Host B and so on.


  1.  When we are running Pktgen DPDK in multiple VMs in parallel for say if we deploy 5 instances each in Host A and Host B then in some of the instances we are getting error:
i40evf_check_api_version(): PF/VF API version mismatch:(0.0)-(1.1)
i40evf_init_vf(): check_api version failed
EAL: Requested device 0000:00:04.0 cannot be used

  1.  From the kernel log in the host machine we get the following error of the faulty VMs:
0000:81:00.0: Invalid message from VF 3, opcode 28, len 0

i40e 0000:81:00.0: Invalid message from VF 4, opcode 28, len 0

i40e 0000:81:00.0: VF 4 failed opcode 14, error: -5

i40e 0000:81:00.0: VF 3 failed opcode 14, error: -5

The Above problem does not repeat if we are running only one DPDK pktgen i.e deploying only 1 VM in host A and host B.

Could someone pls help me please regarding the issue.
