Hyper-V Fastpath v18


will there be support for fastpath using the hv_netvsc Hyper-V network driver?

SFVH_HV01_SFOS 18.0.0 EAP3-Refresh1# ethtool -i PortB
driver: hv_netvsc
firmware-version: N/A
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: no
supports-eeprom-access: no
supports-register-dump: no
supports-priv-flags: no


currently I get the following error.

console> system firewall-acceleration show
Firewall Acceleration is Enabled. Fastpath Load Failed.

  • Luk,

    Our SFOS installed base ion Hyper-V is around 0.5% of deployments. I understand Hyper-V is popular in some sectors, but our data shows it's not that popular for SFOS deployments.


    Hope you can understand that whilst we will look at support for the Hyper-V driver, it won't be high on our engineering priorities in the near future,


    Thanks for your feedback though, always valuable.
