GuestAvioLan

 

The Integrity VM v3.5 release introduces new accelerated storage and networking products to improve the overall I/O performance for Integrity VM. These new Accelerated Virtual I/O (AVIO) products provide up to a 60% reduction in service demand and as much as twofold improvement in throughput over the existing fully virtualized storage and networking Integrity VM solutions.

The AVIO LAN technology consists of two components, an Integrity VM Host component (HostAvioLan) and an Integrity VM Guest component (GuestAvioLan). A user must install and configure the respective kernel drivers on the VM Host and Guest systems for the complete AVIO LAN functionality.

Customers using HP-UX Virtual Partitions v6.0 or Integrity VM v4.30 and v4.2x release should install the October 2013 AVIO web release (B.11.31.1211.01).

Note:

-          AVIO B.11.31.1211.01 version bundles are not supported on OE later to 1109

-          Do not install AVIO B.11.31.1211.01 version bundles on HP-UX vPars & Integrity VM v6.1 and later versions.
