Using VLAN Tagging for SR-IOV-Enabled Ports

When using some Intel network adapters that support SR-IOV, a virtual function might be the target of malicious behavior. Unexpected software-generated frames can throttle traffic between the host and the virtual switch, which might negatively affect performance. To drop unexpected and potentially malicious frames, configure all SR-IOV-enabled ports to use VLAN tagging. For more information, see Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.6 Administration Guide.
