This article walks you through configuration of OVS with DPDK for inter-VM application use cases. Create an OVS vSwitch bridge with two DPDK vhost-user ports, each connected to a separate VM, then use a simple iperf3 throughput test to evaluate performance.
Learn how to configure jumbo frame support for DPDK-enabled ports on an Open vSwitch* (OvS) bridge and also how memory management for jumbo frames works.
The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) packet capture framework consists of the DPDK pdump library and DPDK pdump tool. The article describes how the feature works and shows how to set up traffic monitoring on DPDK-controlled devices.
Configure the DPDK link aggregation feature. Link aggregation combines multiple network connections in parallel to increase throughput beyond what a single connection could sustain.
This article shows how we used Intel® VTune™ Amplifier to identify and fix an MMIO transaction performance bottleneck at the microarchitecture level in OVS-DPDK.
Learn how to configure an SDN enabled wired/wireless network using Open vSwitch* (OvS) with Faucet*, which is an open source SDN controller. Detailed instructions are provided.
This article shows how to configure Intel® Ethernet Flow Director, which can direct Ethernet packets to the core where the packet consuming process is running.
OpenStack* Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) features enable OpenStack to accurately assign the workload to the best HW resource. Learn about each feature, its benefits, and how to configure.
Learn how FD.io, VPP, and the DPDK Cryptodev library work together to provide enhanced IPsec performance and functionality. Configuration instructions are included.
This article surveys of a subset of the DPDK sample applications. It highlights Network Layer 3 forwarding (L3fwd), including more detailed information and the steps needed to build and run the application.
