  • Thread-topic: VGA Passthrough for a HVM linux guest



I have set up a XEN hypervisor (XENCloud Platform 1.5 beta) with a RedHat 6.1 Linux HVM guest. The guest should run an OpenGL application which uses the GPU extensively, I need the XEN VGA Passthrough option in order

to run this application normally. I read the arcticles on the Xen-Wiki about Xen VGA Passthrough support but I am still confused on how to configure the VGA passthrough.


My questions are: Is the required configuration with the VGA passthrough possible? and How can I configure the Xen Hypervisor






Hardware:  Supermicro X8DTH MB with 2 intel Xeon E5620 CPU’s (quad core), 24 GB memory and 1  Nvidia Quadro 2000  video card

Software: Dom0:  XENCloud Platform 1.5 beta and DomU: RedHat 6.1 EL Server
