Need an alternative solution to DPDK for Linux VMs running on Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

      Does any one know if there is an alternative solution to DPDK for Linux VMs running on Hyper-V? or in another word, what's MS team recommended high performance Linux user space packet lib as a replacement of DPDK?

      Background: I have a China local partner built their virtual Web-Application-Firewall on Ali Cloud ECS (VM running on KVM based hypervisor). They are stuck when porting the v-WAF solution to Azure VM (based on Hyper-V) because SR-IOV (the upstream of DPDK) has not been supported in LIS drivers of Hyper-V. My partner's v-WAF relies on DPDK lib to do packet processing in the Linux user space. there was a roadmap in DPDK 16.04 to support Hyper-V, but was removed few days before publishing.

    thanks in advance
