NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure

The NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure specifies an array. Each element in the array specifies the attributes of a PCI Express (PCIe) virtual functions (VF) that have been enabled and allocated on a network adapter.

Syntax

typedef struct _NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY {
  NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER Header;
  ULONG              Flags;
  NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_ID SwitchId;
  ULONG              FirstElementOffset;
  ULONG              NumElements;
  ULONG              ElementSize;
} NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY, *PNDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY;

Members

Header

The type, revision, and size of the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure. This member is formatted as an NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure.

NDIS sets the Type member of Header to NDIS_OBJECT_TYPE_DEFAULT. To specify the version of the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure, NDIS sets the Revision member of Header to the following value:

NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY_REVISION_1

Original version for NDIS 6.30 and later.

Set the Size member to NDIS_SIZEOF_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY_REVISION_1.

Flags

A ULONG value that contains a bitwise OR of the following flags:

NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY_ENUM_ON_SPECIFIC_SWITCH

If this flag is set, the miniport driver must only return an array of NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO structures for VFs that have been allocated on the network adapter switch specified by the SwitchId member. For more information, see the Remarks section.

If the Flags member is set to zero, the miniport driver must return an array of NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO structures for every VF that has been allocated on every network adapter switch of the network adapter.

Note  Starting with Windows Server 2012, the SR-IOV interface only supports the default network adapter switch on the network adapter. Therefore, the miniport driver must only return an array of NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO structures for each VF that has been allocated on the default network adapter switch.
 

SwitchId

An NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_ID value that specifies a switch identifier. The switch identifier is an integer between zero and the number of switches that the network adapter supports. An NDIS_DEFAULT_SWITCH_ID value indicates the default network adapter switch.

Note  Starting with Windows Server 2012, the SR-IOV interface only supports the default network adapter switch that is created on the network adapter. Therefore, this member must always be set to NDIS_DEFAULT_SWITCH_ID.
 

FirstElementOffset

A ULONG value that specifies the offset, in bytes, to the first element in an array of elements that follow this structure. The offset is measured from the start of the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure up to the beginning of the first element. Each element in the array is an NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO structure.

Note  If NumElements is set to zero, this member is ignored.
 

NumElements

A ULONG value that specifies the number of elements that follow the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure.

ElementSize

A ULONG value that specifies the size, in bytes, of each element that follow the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure.

Remarks

NDIS returns an NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure when it handles an OID method request of OID_NIC_SWITCH_ENUM_VFS. Each element in the array that follows the NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO_ARRAY structure is an
NDIS_NIC_SWITCH_VF_INFO structure.
