PF and VF SR-IOV driver and virtual SPU support

Physical Function (PF) and Virtual Function (VF) PCI Passthrough and SR-IOV drivers in FortiGate guest VM are supported.

PF provides the ability for PCI Passthrough, but requires an entire Network Interface Card (NIC) for a VM. It can usually achieve greater performance than a Virtual Function (VF) based SR-IOV. PF is also expensive. While VF allows one NIC to be shared among multiple guests VMs, PF is allocated to one port on a VM.

The supported driver versions are:
