Or OOB kernel driver/rdma-core? OFED 4.6-3.11. Target table (1 in the mentioned patch) is created on the flow creation as empty one. The default rule for the empty ingress table in FDB (transfer attribute in testpmd command) – go to vport 0 (to wire/VF representors), it is established by kernel/rdma-core, In your setup it does not work. The NIC works in switchdev mode; every VF has a representer, and dpdk is polling each rep to get packets. If I revert this patch, in the probe stage, DPDK will not install the default rule which directs packets to Table 1, and dpdk can get packets. The target is to use dpdk as well as action offload together. The setup code is in the function *mlx5_flow_create_esw_table_zero_flow*. Even for running L2FWD, I cannot get a packet from VF rep. You mean this is a driver problem ? I think so. If there is no any DPDK rule in Table 0, everything works OK, right? It means the default rule (hidden from DPDK) in table 0 works, and packets go to the vport 0 (contains all representors). If we insert jump to table 1 – nothing works, it means the default rule in table 1 fails. This one is not established by DPDK, but by the driver.

I’ve tested both l2fwd and ovs-dpdk. However, PF rep works just fine. We are using dpdk 19.11-rc3 for evaluation.
