Device Passthrough across Sockets in a Multi-Socket Setting

Greetings,

In a Dual Socket Server is it possible to passthrough a "PCIe device A" which is hanging from Root Complex of CPU 1 to a VM that is pinned on CPU 2. If so is there some PCIe/QPI(or UPI) Packet encapsulation/decapsulation that takes place ?

P.S. I don't have access to a dual socket machine so can't test it myself.

Hi,

Thanks for the response.

I don't have a dual socket server to test this thing. It was just a doubt that whether it is doable.

And if so is there some PCIe/QPI(or UPI) Packet encapsulation/decapsulation that takes place ?

Hello mailto:anubhavg@iisc.ac.in anubhavg@iisc.ac.in,

 

 

No problem at all, lots of question on the Forums, normally can be related to something you might want to work on the future.

 

But for the PCIe/QPI(or UPI) Packet encapsulation/decapsulation. First, it will depend on the motherboard manufacturer and the OS been used.

 

 

If there any other questions, I will request your permission to close the threat.

 

 

Thank you for your time and help.

 

 

Best regards,
