Dear Sir/Madam,
I am a developer trying to get familiar with the DPDK hash library. I tried
to make and use a hash table successfully.
During the development I came across a variable

/** Number of items per bucket. */
*#define RTE_HASH_BUCKET_ENTRIES 8*

defined inside:
dpdk-20.11.3/dpdk-stable-20.11.3/lib/librte_hash /rte_cuckoo_hash.h

Why does the library take this value as *8*, is there any particular reason
for this? what if it is 16,32... etc.

I am using DPDK 20.11.3 LTS.

Please help.

I would guess it - I would say it is related to cache alignment.
Assuming each entry is 8 bytes 😊

Yes, RTE_HASH_BUCKET_ENTRIES can be any power of 2.
The reason for choosing 8 is a tradeoff between performance and memory. 
When it is equal to 8, the sizeof(struct rte_hash_bucket) equal to 
RTE_CACHE_LINE_SIZE, thus, there are no gaps in memory between the hash 
buckets due to their alignment.

That's a good comment to add in the code.
