I’m using Connect-X5 on CentOS 8.
kernel version: 4.18.0-147.3.1.el8_1.x86_64
Firmware version: 16.27.2008
I think this document is somewhat outdated:
because I tried to follow steps but the command below is not working on ovs 2.12.0. it’s deprecated
$ ovs-dpctl dump-flows type=offloaded
And I got this type of message again and again when I run this command "journalctl -u ovs-vswitchd "
ovs|00008|dpif_netlink(handler82)|ERR|failed to offload flow: Invalid argument: ens2f0
What I have done is that:
- Create a VF from a NIC
- Change the mode of NIC to switchdev mode
- Configure a offload option for ovs before creating a bridge
- Create a bridge and add PF interface as well as VF interface to bridge
- Launch a VM attaching the VF
How can I confirm OVS is offloaded by Connect-X5 ?
It will be very helpful if you provide many ways to confirm if OVS is offloaded.
