Starting with the Oracle Solaris 11.2 release, you can manage network devices that support single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) by using the dladm command. SR-IOV is a standard that enables efficient sharing of Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) devices among virtual machines. It is implemented in the hardware.
