[libvirt-users] SR-IOV: no traffic isolation between VFs with Broadcom 10Gbps cards



Hi all,

I'm testing on debian/unstable SR-IOV feature with Broadcom BCM57810 cards and KVM hypervisor:

Compiled against library: libvirt 1.2.1
Using library: libvirt 1.2.1
Using API: QEMU 1.2.1
Running hypervisor: QEMU 1.7.0

bnx2x
-> firmware 7.8.17
-> driver from kernel 3.12.7

8 VFs are created on the first PF. For each VF, a specific mac address is set manually using "ip link set eth0 vf x mac xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" command. I run several KVM guests with PCI passthrough (same kernel, bnx2x driver and firmware as the host), performance is close to bare metal.

Well, that sounds good, until I start capturing the traffic inside each VM: host traffic is visible as well as traffic destined to other VM. It's like if internal card switching was inoperable. I made several tests with different kernels, different PCIe Passthrough method assignments for libvirt. All failed.

Has anyone successfully experiment SR-IOV with Broadcom cards on linux ?
