How to capture packets while running Flexran sample-app

Hi Team,

 

We could launch Flexran sample-app on 2 different servers (one used as DU and another one as RU).

We followed this link: https://docs.o-ran-sc.org/projects/o-ran-sc-o-du-phy/en/latest/Setup-Configuration_fh.html

and added probing and dpdk binding for the VFs on both servers.

But we don't see any Rx counter and the Rx IQ samples shows (0,0) only.

Can anyone help in capturing the packets while running sample-app?

Or is there any change required?

 

Thank you.

Hi Rajisha, 

 

thanks for reporting your issue. 

 

1. Could you please check if your DKDP is properly configured following : http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/prog_guide/profile_app.html#profiling-with-vtune , so your DPDK is ready for VTune to collect data from it? 

 

2. Also from VTune side, you can refer this link for the details how DPDK applications can be analyzed by VTune.  : https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/documentation/vtune-help/top/analyze-performance/input-and-output-analysis/analyze-dpdk-applications.html 

 

Regards, 

 

Jon
