> Subject: [dpdk-dev] i40e queues per VF
> When reading the documentation, it is not easy to understand the capability of
> i40evf for the number of queues.
> First, please could you explain why we need a build-time config option?
> In the doc, there is neither justification nor tuning guidelines:
> CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_I40E_QUEUE_NUM_PER_PF (default 64) Number of
> queues reserved for PF.
> CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_I40E_QUEUE_NUM_PER_VF (default 4) Number of
> queues reserved for each SR-IOV VF.
> I feel these are hard limits and should be some constants in the code, not
> build configuration options.
> The other doc to look at is:
> Each VF can have a maximum of 16 queue pairs.
> Do we agree that a queue pair is 1 Rx queue / 1 Tx queue?
> Note: the concept of queue pairs in Intel VF should be explained somewhere.
> Below, a different limitation is given:
> The available queue number(at most 4) per VF depends on the total number of
> pool, which is determined by the max number of VF at PF initialization stage
> the number of queue specified in config "
> So what is the real maximum of queue pairs? 4 or 16?
> The datasheet talks about 16 queues. Is it 8 pairs?
> Is there something to configure the number of queues when creating VF with the
> kernel driver?
