I/O Domain Overview

An I/O domain has direct ownership of and direct access to physical I/O devices. It can be created by assigning a PCI EXPRESS (PCIe) bus or a PCIe endpoint device to a domain. Use the ldm add-io command to assign a bus or device to a domain.

You might want to configure I/O domains for the following reasons:

For information about configuring I/O domains, see the following:

Note - You cannot migrate an I/O domain that is configured with PCIe endpoint devices. For information about other migration limitations, see Chapter 9, Migrating Domains.
