Where can I find documentation on the eSwitch ? Such as programing the eSwitch ? While going through the DOCA SDK docs, I see all of the offload only mentioned when configuring something on the OVS. The doc also mentioned that “Offloading rules can also be added directly, and not just through OVS, using the tc utility. To enable TC ingress on all the representors (i.e. uplink, PF, and VF)”, so is the Linux Kernel the “embedded switch” ?
When configuring a flow rule in the OVS in
offload mode. Does that automatically create corresponding iptable rule?
I just need some clarification on exactly what this eSwitch is. So far it sounds just like Kernel Networking
