How to set "mrg_rxbuf=off" while creating instance ?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • One of our applications running in OpenStack environment, requires disabling mrg_rxbuf. I tried to pass this parameter using property on the image in glance. It does not seem to be helping.
# glance image-update 02a2a199-c325-43cd-b951-929c0f0ee62f --property mrg_rxbuf=off

[root@sbezverk-os-2 scripts(keystone_admin)]# glance image-show 02a2a199-c325-43cd-b951-929c0f0ee62f  
| Property                | Value                                |
| Property 'hw_disk_bus'  | ide                                  |
| Property 'hw_vif_model' | e1000                                |
| Property 'mrg_rxbuf'    | off                                  |
  • But when I launch the instance I do not see mrg_rxbuf set off in qemu command line.
