[Oisf-users] VMXNET3 interface

Hi list,

Wondering if anyone had issues running in IDS mode on a VMXNET3 interface
from an ESXi server.

I'm getting some very weird behavior, where I can't trigger detection on
most rules. Running 5.0.2 in AF-Packet with Large Receive Offload disabled,
as I read several reports of it causing problems in VMXNET3.

Any tips/pointers appreciated.
