Hi Michael,

Some work has already been done to enable TSO over VxLAN, but it was blocked until recently, on account of gaps in the DPKD i40e PMD's support for tunnel offload.

We believe that those gaps have now been addressed; our current focus is on ironing out the issues in TSO support over flat and VLAN networks - once that's done, we plan to resume work on VxLAN support (and GRE, IPinIP).

Hope this helps,
Mark
