The Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) is a hardware virtualization technology for the efficient transfer of network traffic (such as TCP/IP, iSCSI or FCoE) to a virtualized host OS. VMQ technology was patented in 2010 by Daniel Baumberger of Intel Corp. A VMQ capable NIC can use DMA to transfer all incoming frames that should be routed to a receive queue to the receive buffers that are allocated for that queue. The miniport driver can indicate all of the frames that are in a receive queue in one receive indication call. The VMQ interface supports:

dbo:abstract
  • The Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) is a hardware virtualization technology for the efficient transfer of network traffic (such as TCP/IP, iSCSI or FCoE) to a virtualized host OS. VMQ technology was patented in 2010 by Daniel Baumberger of Intel Corp. A VMQ capable NIC can use DMA to transfer all incoming frames that should be routed to a receive queue to the receive buffers that are allocated for that queue. The miniport driver can indicate all of the frames that are in a receive queue in one receive indication call. The VMQ interface supports: * Classification of received packets in NIC hardware by using the destination MAC address to route the packets to different receive queues. * NIC ability to use DMA to transfer packets directly to a virtual machine‚Äôs shared memory. For more information about shared memory, see NDIS 6.20 Memory Management Interface. * Scaling to multiple processors by processing packets for different virtual machines on different processors.
