I’m trying to use HW bonding in combination with SR-IOV on a dual-port ConnectX-5 adapter (Ethernet mode).
My understanding is that I need to bond the two PFs then a VM attached to single port VF will benefit from HW LAG transparently.
A couple of questions:
- which version of the mlx5 driver support this ? Is kernel 5.0 needed (that features “support for mlx5 VF LAG”) ?
- is there any specific configuration to be done on the PF or VF to activate transparent HW LAG ?
my current config:
