Description Slava Shwartsman 2017-07-03 13:33:58 UTC
1. Feature Overview:
        a) Name of feature:
                Add support for OVS HW offload
        b) Feature description:
                This FR will allow OVS mech driver to bind direct (SR-IOV) port.
This will allow to offload the OVS flows using tc to the SR-IOV NIC
and gain accelerate OVS.
2. Feature Details:
        a) Architectures:
                x86_64, ppc64le, ppc64, aarch64
        b) Bugzilla dependencies:
        c) Drivers or hardware dependencies:
Kernel support for traffic Control hardware offloads framework for SR-IOV VFs.
HW offload support in OpenVSwitch.
        d) Upstream acceptance information:
        https://review.openstack.org/#/c/275616/ 
        https://review.openstack.org/#/c/452530/
