I'm not really familiar with testpmd, how am I supposed to do that ?

For example, I don't see you add the tx_pp devarg as part of the testpmd command line.

Thanks for you answer,

Already red the doc on the subject but can't make it work in testpmd.
Didn't implemented it myself at this step but seams I'm missing something.

Do I need to enable a specific offload ?

Hello Antoine,

Have you had a look into mlx5 documentation?


Please look for tx_pp.

I'm adding @Slava Ovsiienko<mailto:viacheslavo@nvidia.com> in case you need further support.

Subject: [ConnectX 6Dx]Issue using Tx scheduling feature in DPDK


DPDK Version: 21.11

Firmware version : 22.32.1010


We are trying to use the DPDK tx scheduling feature on a ConnectX6 DX adapter. We experience some issues with the feature not working.

The test is using Test-pmd in txonly mode.

Here are the command used:

sudo ./dpdk-testpmd -l 0-3 -n 4 -- -i --portmask=0x1 --nb-cores=1 --eth-peer=0,01:00:5e:00:00:08 --tx-ip=,

testpmd> set fwd txonly

testpmd> set burst 64

testpmd> set txtimes 1000000,10000

By doing this I expect the feature working. Am i missing something ?

I also added a print in txonly.c and clearly sees that the feature is not enabled

dynf = rte_mbuf_dynflag_lookup


if (dynf >= 0)

timestamp_mask = 1ULL << dynf;

dynf = rte_mbuf_dynfield_lookup


if (dynf >= 0)

timestamp_off = dynf;

both function ( rte_mbuf_dynfield_lookup and rte_mbuf_dynflag_lookup) returns -1

I also tried to enabled the feature.

testpmd> port config 0 tx_offload send_on_timestamp on

but when doing this DPDK tells me that I don't have these offload capabilities

Hope you will be able to help me.
