I am looking for an SR-IOV VF pps limiting solution. As described in the documents [bandwidth limiting], connectX series NICs provide bandwidth limiting.
Although I have not found the formal pps limiting solution, I figured out sysfs pps directory for connectX-6 dx.:
This sysfs file works as I intended. From this, I have two questions as following:
- May I use this sysfs file? I mean I wonder if it is the correct usage for pps limiting.
- ConnectX-5 does not introduce this ‘meters/tx/pps’ sysfs. Is there another possible approach to limit pps?
