Re: [libvirt-users] nested vms and nested macvtaps



Thanks much sir
Ease I think mainly
adding a macvtap is pretty quick, performant and works. And last but definitely not least, ignorance of other quick easy solutions.
Well, also macvtap works on older hardware where I don't have physical functions to passthrough via sr-iov, that is what you are pointing to with "macvtaps in the most outer one VM and pass them thru to inner layer
VMs"?
Currently I can use macvtaps with an old HP xw8600 desktop with the integrated  broadcoms

yeah ease/hardware/ignorance

I have never tested it, but why do you want to nest macvtaps? Why not
have macvtaps in the most outer one VM and pass them thru to inner layer
VMs?
