Is there any current support for vde2 aside from using vde2_plug2tap?
(Does that even work? I believe vde2 likes to open the tap interface
exclusively. I need to bring up a bhyve test environment to check fully.)
How exactly does the bhyve network stack work through bridging? I'm
imaging it's tying in to bridging APIs?
I'm assuming bhyve-to-bhyve network communication is also possible?
I can't imagine it'd be too hard to implement vde2 support for
networking...it'd give me more control over my VMs and give easier
integration with SIMH VMs.
OpenVSwitch I know less about...but I'm aware it is another virtual switch
and it works on FreeBSD...not sure if it has a kernel module or if it's in
userspace. With vde2 I know for sure it can be attached to a tap
interface and therefore a bridge.
A virtual switch for bhyve would be a useful feature if there aren't any
plans for one. Get up there and have it in base. ;)
Unrelated: any plans for a special bhyve-to-bhyve communication bus? Not
too useful of a feature...I can't think of any use for it off-hand aside
from dedicating a VM to administrating VMs without exposing much to the
host beyond configurations.
