Virtio is at the heart of KVM IO. Recently, virtio has introduced new virtio transports that impact how various backends such as virtio-net and virtio-blk operate. With new architectures like ARM there are new virtio options besides PCI that are available for virtualized IO. This presentation will cover QEMU and Linux virtio implementation - Guest virtio device discovery, configuration and transport for new and legacy virtio. Performance concerns are always high priority when operating in a virtualized environment, and as such, the talk will also cover performance features, tuning and issues to look for in recent virtio architectures. The primary focus area is on ARM QEMU and KVM, PCI to expose virtio QEMU, Linux guest internals.
