Have a question on the format physical_device_mapping for SRIOV.

the format of the string in the ml2_confg_sriov.ini file is

physical_device_mappings = <physical_network>:<network_device> physical_device_mappings = physnet1:ens2f0

in this case, does the network device refer to the physical card which is in pci slot 2 or does it refer to the Physical Function which in my case is enp7s16.

fighting with getting SRIOV to work and was just making sure I have the mapping correct.

network_device refers to the physical network card, which actually should be your PF (AFAIK). In my case with i350 nic, once VF are activated, my NIC become my PF. Hope it helps.
