Multiqueue on virtio NIC
I would like to activate support for the multiqueue network in PfSense with the virtio paravirtualized network card.
I have read a lot and it seems that the virtio driver cannot handle QOS together with the multiqueue. I use only limiters, so it should still be compatible.
I haven't found any specific documentation, it seems that the virtio driver natively supports up to 8 queues, but I've never been able to activate more than one. Can any of you give me information on this?
Activate multiqueue on NIC is easy, but in PfSense I don't understand what I need to set.

Ok, so in summary it is not possible to use multiqueue because the virtio driver is compiled with ALTQ support enabled. Either you recompile the kernel (so you will have a kernel with multiqueue support on the virtio but without support for ALTQ) or it is not possible.
Very thanks !!!
