NVIDIA Mellanox Bluefield-2 SmartNIC Hands-On Tutorial: “Rig for Dive” — Part VI: DPDK Performance.
How I get DPDK up and running on a Bluefield-2 SmartNIC, and what is its performance when measured with pktgen and testpmd.
In the previous part, we have installed the latest Ubuntu operating system on the Bluefield, supplied by the vendor itself. This release includes DOCA, DPDK, OvS, and all necessary tools by default. Hence, if you follow Part V in installing this system, you can probably skip the DPDK-related part of my blog post in Part II. :)
