Hi all,

Right now on OVS, dpdkvhostuser can only run in polling mode (please
correct me if I am wrong). We are trying to enable interrupt mode of
dpdkvhostuser type port on OVS. We found that, with changes below, OVS
can poll&block on exposed kickfd and vhostuser is working under
interrupt mode without consuming 2 CPUs.

My question is, is this the correct direction to do so, or is there a
better way? Thanks!

Introducing rte_vhost_get_kickfd() may not help much, we already
have rte_vhost_get_vhost_vring() to do that.

Hi Tiwei,

Thanks a lot for your comment. I will take a look at rte_vhost_get_vhost_vring.

Best,
Yifeng

Hi Tiwei,

Thanks for your feedback.
I'd like to learn about the event index feature of vhost.
Is there any document we can read to understand it?

Thanks
William
