I need some help offloading traffic on an OVN / OVS External GW
The diagram below provides a high level reference for what I am trying to achieve
The reference architecture for provider networks is outlined here:
I’m not using Openstack at all here , just OVN , by configuring the logical topology in ovn-northd .
Does anyone have an example configuration showing how the ConnectX-6 card should be configured on the gateway chassis to achieve full hardware offload?
If I use separate physical interfaces for the geneve tunnel and the provider interface , Nvidia tell me that cross port offload is not supported. Has anyone ever achieved full offload on a gateway using these cards?
