Virtual Interrupt Functions
The reference pages in this section describe functions for controlling virtual interrupts. The hypervisor virtualizes interrupt delivery to virtual processors by using a synthetic interrupt controller (SynIC). A SynIC is an extension of a virtualized local Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller (APIC); that is, each virtual processor has a local APIC instance with the SynIC extensions. These extensions provide a simple inter-partition communication mechanism.
