Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] Xen 4.1 Feature Request List
Multi-queue functionality in netfront/netbk drivers would be very useful in improving aggregate network throughput. This is complementary to leveraging VMQ functionality via Netchannel2.

For Dom-0 transmit queue logic, a simple mechanism to map physical NIC’s receive queues to Vif’s transmit queues and vice-versa would also be very useful and will help Dom-0 leverage NIC’s hardware based hashing functionality such as RSS and guest kernel’s transmit queue functionality for end-to-end network throughput enhancement.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Xen Community:
As many of you are aware, the Xen 4.0 hypervisor is due to ship tomorrow (shhhh, don’t tell anyone) and I wanted to get submissions underway for Xen 4.1 features. I have updated the Roadmap Wiki page (http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenRoadMap) with a new section for Xen 4.1 features to be added. Feel free to add your ideas or send me your features and I will update the wiki. I also plan to update the Xen.org roadmap page at http://www.xen.org/products/xen_roadmap.html to be a list of 4.1 features tomorrow, after Xen 4.0 is announced.
