I have a Instance running and iam curious about the internals and how
the packets are routed from the physical (hostsystem) layer to the
Internal, virtual Guest interface (virtio, e1000, rtl8139 ect)
(IP/TCP/UDP/ICMP Data only).
"How" is an inboud packet, reaching the hosts physical ethernetcard
hardware forwarded to the virtual nic inside the guest os and what is
happening if the guest os firewall
drops/reject/accept the packet?
1) Will the Hostsystem drop this packet physically?
2) Is the Guest OS dropping the packet at the virtual guest network
(and if so, what data still remains inside the Hostsystem memory
structures and what event triggers the memory cleanup?)
If there is any good docs out there, then please let me now. On google i
only find very generic stuff.
