Vhost-net Device IOTLB

Overview

This page provides information about the design of Device IOTLB for vhost-net to provides a secure and efficient environment for dpdk like program in guest.

Design Goals

  • Architecture independent: The implementation should be compatible to current Qemu's IOMMU architecture, then it should be architecture independent and then be easy to be ported to various platform/IOMMU implementation.
  • Efficient: End user should have no obvious felling performance degradation when using dpdk like program in guest.
  • Compatible: The implementation should be compatible to current vhost-net memory region API to support VM without DMAR enabled.
