Use accelerated networking for supported operating systems and VM types.

Description#

Enabling accelerated networking for a virtual machine (VM) greatly improves networking performance. Accelerated networking work by enabling single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) to a VM. SR-IOV reduces latency, jitter, and CPU utilization network demanding workloads.

Accelerated networking is available for supported operating systems and VM types.

Recommendation#

Consider enabling accelerated networking for supported operating systems and VM types.
