On one host (I'll refer to this host as host A) I have configured a bridge with the PF interface as well as vitio-net's interface (standby) both attached to it....The command line I used: /root/qemu/x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 \ -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,script=world_bridge_standalone.sh,downscript=no,ifname= cc17 \ -device e1000,netdev=hostnet0,mac=56:cc:c1:01:cc:21,id=cc17 \What's e1000 doing here? Can this be reason you can not talk to host?I don't think so, the e1000 is for enabling WAN connection on the guest for downloading packages and ssh connection. It is connected to a separate bridge which is connected to the external interface of the host.-netdev tap,vhost=on,id=hostnet1,script=test_bridge_standalone.sh,downscript= no,ifname=cc1_72,queues=4 \ -device virtio-net,host_mtu=1500,netdev=hostnet1,mac=8a:f7:20:29:3b:cb,id= cc1_72,vectors=10,mq=on,primary=cc1_71 \ -device vfio-pci,host=65:02.1,id=cc1_71,standby=cc1_72 \ -enable-kvm \ -name netkvm \ -m 3000M \ -drive file=/dev/shm/fedora_29.qcow2,if=ide,id=drivex \ -smp 4 \ -vga qxl \ -spice port=6110,disable-ticketing \ -device virtio-serial-pci,id=virtio-serial0,max_ports=16,bus=pci.0,addr=0x7 \ -chardev spicevmc,name=vdagent,id=vdagent \ -device virtserialport,nr=1,bus=virtio-serial0.0,chardev=vdagent,name= com.redhat.spice.0 \ -chardev socket,path=/tmp/qga.sock,server,nowait,id=qga0 \ -device virtio-serial \ -device virtserialport,chardev=qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.0 \ -monitor stdio...Since I couldn't ping from VM to host B, I did an iperf test between the VM and host A with the feature enabled and during the test I have unplugged the sriov device, the device was unplugged successfully and no drops where observed as you can see in the results below: [root@dhcp156-44 ~]# ifconfigWell I suspect this won't tell you anything, this shows packet drops at the hardware level. When e.g. link is down linux won't send any packets out. The simplest test is to monitor latency and throughput and see that while it is lower for the duration of migration, there are no huge spikes around the switch.Oh, okay will do that. I have noticed some nasty lag when I tried to ssh to the VM using the failover interface while I didn't experience that with the e1000. Sridhar Any idea what might be the cause?
When using failover interface, i guess you have the VF interface plugged in and UP. So you should be using the primary interface. Do you see the VFs MAC configured correctly at the host PF? You can do ÂÂÂ ip link show dev <pf> and it should show the MACs of all the VFs associated with that PF.
