Hi Folks, We are trying to understand what happens when we launch an instance with VF-Direct-Attach. By "what happens" I mean,

1) how the request from the Neutron-server ends up in the Compute node ?

2) What all steps does the sriov agent in the compute node undertakes ?

3) how an instance with vf-direct-attach is launched and how is the traffic flow?

4) Does it work along with OVS ?

Can anyone point to some developer deep-dive guide that answers those questions? Please help.
