sriov and dpdk on vm



I have a compute node of openstack juno running 2 vms.

Each vm have a nic which is a sriov vf.

In each vm i read packet with dpdk in user space from the sriov vf.

All the 2 vm receive traffic ok.

If in one of the vm i kill the dpdk processes that is listening to the sriov vf , the other vm stop receiving traffic.

Why is one vm/vf influenced by the other?

If i look in the host side with ethtool -S, i can see that all packet are Rx dropped at rx_missed_errors.

Here is the output of lspci
