Parent article: Multiqueue networking
(Virtualization) Will this help widen the networking bottleneck that exists for a host OS that runs many virtual machines (since it's currently a many:one sharing of one queue)...?
This is discussed elsewhere at ACM: http://www.acmqueue.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=527 as a problem that needs a solution... "The use of multiqueue network interfaces in this way should improve network virtualization performance by eliminating the multiplexing and copying overhead inherent in sharing I/O devices in software among virtual machines." for instance...
Perhaps this is a path for KVM development?
