Hey cloudy-virt-buds –
We have a long standing PR from Manohar Castelino in the runtime repo, , which removes the bridge networking model.
In the bridge networking model, a bridge is created in the network namespace, and the veth is connected to the VM’s tap. This is the least performant and a bit more complex than necessary. We recommend end-users utilize tc-filter (default) or macvtap.
Zhang Wei brought up the concern of whether end-users could be using bridge today. I hope they aren’t, but am now considering whether this should be a 2.0 candidate, and whether this should be considered a breaking change.
Feedback? I’d like input from other AC members here so we can make forward progress on this PR, and/or on 2.0 planning.
