will there be support for fastpath using the hv_netvsc Hyper-V network driver?
SFVH_HV01_SFOS 18.0.0 EAP3-Refresh1# ethtool -i PortBdriver: hv_netvscversion:firmware-version: N/Aexpansion-rom-version:bus-info:supports-statistics: yessupports-test: nosupports-eeprom-access: nosupports-register-dump: nosupports-priv-flags: no
currently I get the following error.
console> system firewall-acceleration showFirewall Acceleration is Enabled. Fastpath Load Failed.
No,Currently fastpath supports the following NIC drivers: i40e, e1000, e1000e, igb, ixgbe, vmxnet3.
If fastpath is enabled when system has no supported NICs, fastpath load will fail but system will still be fully functional without the performance enhancements provided by fastpath.
can you investigate internally and track this as an issue?
Hyper-V is very popular and fast path should be supported even on Hyper-V platform.
I think this is a system limitation on the side of the snort engine on which FastPath & DPI is implemented. Note that there is not support for KVM, Citrix XenApp, and of course for Hyper-V and Azure too.
