sriov — SR-IOV settings


Table 73. 

Key Name Value Type Default Value Value Description
NMTernary (int32)
Whether to autoprobe virtual functions by a compatible driver. If set to NM_TERNARY_TRUE (1), the kernel will try to bind VFs to a compatible driver and if this succeeds a new network interface will be instantiated for each VF. If set to NM_TERNARY_FALSE (0), VFs will not be claimed and no network interfaces will be created for them. When set to NM_TERNARY_DEFAULT (-1), the global default is used; in case the global default is unspecified it is assumed to be NM_TERNARY_TRUE (1).
The total number of virtual functions to create. Note that when the sriov setting is present NetworkManager enforces the number of virtual functions on the interface (also when it is zero) during activation and resets it upon deactivation. To prevent any changes to SR-IOV parameters don't add a sriov setting to the connection.
array of vardict
Array of virtual function descriptors. Each VF descriptor is a dictionary mapping attribute names to GVariant values. The 'index' entry is mandatory for each VF. When represented as string a VF is in the form: "INDEX [ATTR=VALUE[ ATTR=VALUE]...]". for example: "2 mac=00:11:22:33:44:55 spoof-check=true". Multiple VFs can be specified using a comma as separator. Currently the following attributes are supported: mac, spoof-check, trust, min-tx-rate, max-tx-rate, vlans. The "vlans" attribute is represented as a semicolon-separated list of VLAN descriptors, where each descriptor has the form "ID[.PRIORITY[.PROTO]]". PROTO can be either 'q' for 802.1Q (the default) or 'ad' for 802.1ad.
