Description Stephen Gordon 2017-06-08 15:02:49 EDT
Cloned from launchpad blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/netronome-smartnic-enablement.


Netronome SmartNICs allow complex packet processing on the NIC. In order to
support hardware acceleration for them, Nova core needs modifications to
support the combination of VIF and OVS plugging they support. This spec
proposes a hybrid SR-IOV and OVS model to enable acceleration.
