Hello! Having troubles with passing pci device to the guest. Here is what we have:

I read some old info about bge driver and matching guest and host slot numbers: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-virtualization/2014-January/001976.html

Maybe i understood it wrong... In my case we have one multifunction pci device (NIC). First function (3/0/0) is for the host management (bge0). Second function (3/0/1) is passthru for the guest. If i am trying to match params with bhyve (e.g. -s 3:1,passthru,3/0/1) i am getting no network devs inside vm:

    device     = 'Virtio block device'

    subclass   = SCSI

    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '82371SB PIIX3 ISA [Natoma/Triton II]'
    class      = bridge
    subclass   = PCI-ISA
What options do i have in my case? Is it possible to passthru second NIC function to vm?

There are a few requirements for pass-through to work, the host needs to support IOMMU (VT-d) and the device needs to support MSI/MSI-x.

Have a look through here: https://wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve/pci_passthru

As far as I understood it you don't need to match up the host's bus/slot/function but you may need to pass-through each individual function.
