Hi Harry,
>Any hints highly appreciated!
In my setup, I have dual port Intel GigE, one assigned to host and other
one is used by guest

root@svmhost:~ # pciconf -l |grep ppt

...

ppt2@pci0:2:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x125e8086 chip=0x105e8086 rev=0x06
hdr=0x00

root@svmhost:~ #


This show up as 'em0' in BSD guest with 2 vcpus.

root@bsdguest:~ # pciconf -l |grep em0

em0@pci0:0:21:0:        class=0x020000 card=0x125e8086 chip=0x105e8086
rev=0x06 hdr=0x00

root@bsdguest:~ #

Once guest is booted, ppt2 will claim interrupt resources, in this case
just 1 interrupt line #265

root@svmhost:~ # vmstat -i

interrupt                          total       rate

...

irq263: em0:irq0                 1028705        634

..

irq265: ppt2                     1041187        641

Total                            2835121       1747

Now use cpuset to route IRQ#265 to say core 0

$cpuset -l 0 -x 265

Again use cpuset to force VM[PID 1222] to run on all core except #0

root@svmhost:~ # ps

 PID TT  STAT    TIME COMMAND

....

1222  1  I+   5:59.45 bhyve: vm1 (bhyve)


VM can run on all cores except #0.

$ cpuset -l 1-3 -p 1222


You can monitor guest due to interrupts using

$root@svmhost:~ # bhyvectl --get-stats --vm=<vm name> --cpu=<vcpu> | grep
external

vm exits due to external interrupt      27273

root@svmhost:~ #


Regards,

Anish
