The BSD hypervisor (bhyve) Basic
The BSD hypervisor, bhyve, pronounced "beehive" is a hypervisor/virtual machine manager available on FreeBSD, macOS, and Illumos.
FreeNAS® VMs use the bhyve(8) virtual machine software. This type of virtualization requires an Intel processor with Extended Page Tables (EPT) or an AMD processor with Rapid Virtualization Indexing (RVI) or Nested Page Tables (NPT).
To verify that an Intel processor has the required features, use Shell to run
grep VT-x /var/run/dmesg.boot. If the EPT and UG features are shown, this processor can be used with bhyve.
To verify that an AMD processor has the required features, use Shell to run
grep POPCNT /var/run/dmesg.boot. If the output shows the POPCNT feature, this processor can be used with bhyve.
