[Xen-bugs] [Bug 871] New: NIC Limit for HVM Domains


           Summary: NIC Limit for HVM Domains
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: HVM
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: xen703@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I noticed that there's a limit of 8 NICs for a HVM, while I'm aware of the
artificial limit of 3 for paravirtualized domains, I don't know if the problem
also applies for for a HVM domain. Anyhow, the limit can be changed in the
vlc.c/h file. 

The guest recognizes all 10 (I need 10) NICs, and so far I wasn't able to
notice any difficulties, though haven't tested in depth.

Any insight on the limit is welcome, and if it is just due to historical reason
I propose to raise it.
