Pike Series Release Notes


New Features

  • A new port profile has been added to describe VF representors on OVS-based switches, as featured in Linux kernel 4.8 and later. This port profile can currently be used with Agilio OVS networks. It is intended to be flexible enough to be used by multiple vendors.


New Features

  • In the ocata cycle support was added for setting the MTU of vhost-user port with ovs.

  • vhost-user MTU support enable jumbo frames to be used with vhost-user interfaces.

Other Notes

  • vhost-user MTU support requires ovs 2.6 or newer. On older versions of ovs, the MTU request will not be made and jumbo frames are not supported.
