Thanks Stephen. I am just using one RX queue from the NIC. I assume that since I don’t need per-queue interrupts here since there is only one queue, I should be good using ixgbe+igb_uio?

However, I wanted to ask here first to see if my setup is missing anything obvious. I based it closely on the l3fwd-power example, though I haven't been able to get that example up and running yet since my NIC only has one port plugged in right now and the example requires two (COVID building restrictions).
