Wireshark/Tshark on Host SR-IOV Interface

Greetings

I am working on testing a DPDK based VM and need to see if packets are really leaving the host interface. I am using an HP DL-380 server with Intel based 10G nics. I have enabled SR-IOV and am using 1 VF on each of 2 PFs. I want to sniff packets on the host but when I start tshark on the PF device I do not see any packets. but I know they are are passing to the VM (some of them anyway). How can you setup the PF to be able to see

traffic to the VF or when the VF is enabled it completely bi-passes this capability?

Host Info:

Hi!

Do your HP* DL-380 server feature onboard "Intel based 10G NICs" or are these external NIC cards? If these are external Intel(R) Network Cards, would you, please, provide the exact model?

These are not embedded NICs. They are the HP branded Intel NIC but the chipset is the

HP ETHERNET 10GB 2P 560SFP+ ADPTR - Intel Corporation 82599ES 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection
