Hi everyone,

I'm new to DPDK, I have a question on how to announce VIP through BGP for
my LB based on DPDK.

The design looks like this:

   - I have multiple hosts (virtual machines or physical machines), every
   host advertising the same VIP, for example.
   - Each LB host has two NICs, one for DPDK, one for admin purposes.
   - LB forward the packets to backend servers based on VIP configuration

Normally, I use Bird or Quagga for BGP advertising, but I don't know how to
make BGP work with DPDK applications. Do I need to implement BGP within the
DPDK application? It looks overkilling to me.

Looking forward to getting advice from you, or pointing me to any

Thanks very much.

Best wishes,
