Intel SR-IOV technology


Hi,

I have a legacy application which needs 8 Ethernet ports. I want to port it to a new board which has only four Ethernet ports.

On new board, I am having Intel 82599 as Ethernet controller, which supports SR-IOV. My doubt is :
1) Is it possible to make a single Ethernet port to appear as two separate Ethernet ports to the application using SR-IOV technology.
2) If yes, then how to configure it.
3) If it is not possible to do so using SR-IOV, then is there any other way of doing it ?

Regards,
Sahil
