I plan to run DPDK-pktgen on my Xeon D platform.
I have two MBs. Since i currently don't have 10G switch, my experiment is to use one MB to act as a 10G switch to generate traffic and the other one is to act as a receiver.
Each MB has two 10G port embedded. so total I have 4 10G ports and two on either one.
Below is my configuration:
OS: Ubuntu 16.04
CPU: Xeon-D 1541 & Xeon-D 1557
NIC: Intel X552/X557 10GBASE-T
My understanding is probably wrong, there might be better testing scenario for pktgen. If so, please kindly let me know.
If my testing scenario is reasonable, is there any document I can follow to set up the environment ?
