The Linux kernel does not fully utilize existing hardware capabilities provided by SR-IOV. As a result user-space consumers (such as libvirt) end up only supporting the most basic of features. The result is serious users of SR-IOV end up depending on proprietary implementations outside of Linux.
The purpose of this BOF is to get SR-IOV on Linux unstuck from the current stall.
Any of the following are highly encouraged to attend:
A tentative agenda (we would like to solicit topics as well):
Note: Alex Duyck's tutorial is a good introduction to SR-IOV and both beginners and experienced netdevers are encouraged to attend that tutorial before showing up for the BOF.
