x710-DA1 SR-IOV problems

Hello. I am using sr-iov NIC virtualization for virtual machines. If you forward one virtual network interface to a virtual machine, then everything works well, but if you forward two network interfaces, then access to the second network interface is performed with packet losses and delays.

ping -D 192.168.1.10

Pay attention to the timestamps, replies come every 4 seconds and there is a loss

I tried different versions of drivers, at the moment the version is like this:
ethtool -i ens2f0
driver: i40e
version: 2.14.13
firmware-version: 10.53.7

Please tell me what could be the problem?

We need to close this thread since we have not gotten a response from you: maybe because you are busy or preoccupied at the moment.
