VM-Series firewalls now support multiple NIC types
and multiple queues. You can configure both SR-IOV and DPDK for
all hypervisors on cloud platforms that support multiple NIC types.
In addition, a single NIC type with variable queues (available on
some cloud platforms) is also supported.
For example, you can now use both SR-IOV and DPDK
with the Cisco ENCS uCPE appliance, which has both IGB (WAN) and
IXGBE (LAN) drivers.
Each NIC can support a different number of queues.
PAN-OS queries each DPDK interface to find the number of queues,
calculates the total number of queues, then assigns them to the
available data plane cores in a round-robin fashion.
Please contact Technical Support if you want to configure this feature.
