Hi Ciara,

Thank you for your quick response and useful tips.
That's a good idea to change the rx flow, I will test it later.

Meanwhile, I tested AF_XDP PMD with 1rx/1tx queue configuration. The performance is too worse than MLX5 PMD, nearly 2/3 drop... total traffic is 3Gbps.
I also checked some statistics, it shows drops on xdp recv and app internel transfer, it seems xdp recv and send take times, since there is no difference on app side bettween the two tests(dpdk/xdp).

Are there any extra configuration is required for AF_XDP PMD ?
The XDP PMD should have similar performance as DPDK PMD under 10Gbps ?

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your question. Yes, at the moment this configuration is forbidden for the AF_XDP PMD. One socket is created for each pair of rx and tx queues.
However maybe this is an unnecessary restriction of the PMD. It is indeed possible to create a socket with either one rxq or one txq. I will put looking into the feasibility of enabling this in the PMD on my backlog.
In the meantime, one workaround you could try would be to create an even number of rxq and txqs but steer all traffic to the first rxq using some NIC filtering eg. tc.
