The division of a physical network into multiple broadcast domains or VLANs offers improved scalability, security and network management.

Onload will accelerate traffic over suitable VLAN interfaces by default with no additional configuration required.

For example to add an interface for VLAN 5 over an SFC interface (eth2):

modprobe onload
modprobe 8021q
vconfig add eth2 5
ifconfig eth2.5

Traffic over this interface will then be transparently accelerated by Onload.

Refer to the Limitations section, VLANs for further information.
