Is this a vfio specific problem? Does the app work with those ports if they
are bound to igb_uio, for instance?

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for the quick response.
No it didn't work with igb_uio either.
The reason is,

I had made a mistake,
When i created VFs on top of the 10G card, that interface was down
actually. but i proceeded anyway because i could see mac on these vfs from
"ifconfig -a".
After a bit of looking around, i found that eth_ixgbevf_dev_init() expects
these VFs to have some mac. Then i looked again with "ip link show dev
parent_if_name", these vfs had no mac.
So i administratively up'ed(ifconfig up) the parent interface and then
created VFs on top it and bound them to vfio-pci. Now the test-pmd app
works fine.
Sorry for the false alarm.


Thanks so much,
-DG
