> In theory this NIOCRXSYNC is not needed, because poll() or kqueue_wait() calls NIOCRXSYNC internally. This works perfectly with poll(), at least. As far as I know bhyve uses kqueue to wait on the netmap file descriptor. What happens if you remove this ioctl()?
I agree, it seems there are no need to call ioctl(..., NIOCRXSYNC, ...). And I observed a some throughput increase (~300-500 MBit/s 1500 MTU), when RX packet occupied one netmap buffer. This is explained by the fact that additional syscall was gone.
But I need some time to investigate how this affects performance with a large MTU.
