This video contains a description of the hardware requirements of SR-IOV, and a demonstration of how to configure the service from BIOS to the virtual machine.
- [Narrator] So SR-IOV seems like a pretty good deal.…The high-powered NIC is already doing the sort into queues…so we can cut the hypervisor,…including the virtual switch,…out of the transfer entirely.…Fewer people handling the information…means faster transfer of information.…There are two things that we need…to look at when turning this feature on.…First is whether or not the hardware supports it,…and second is finding that on switch.…From a hardware standpoint,…there are two things…that need the support I/O virtualization…for this to work,…the network card and the motherboard.…
And it's easy enough…to check the specifications…of a network card before you buy it.…Here, I have Intel's website,…and as of this recording,…a current list of the network adapters…that support this feature.…And you can look at the specs…of any network card that you're considering purchasing…or have already acquired.…Again, for example,…on Intel's website,…if I scroll down on the specs,…I do find that this NIC is SR-IOV capable.…Coincidentally, it also supports virtual machine queuing.…
