I have a DPDK application running 5 instances on 5 CPUs. I have bound 1 QAT VF to each of the CPUs using cryptodev.

I have allocated only a single instance of the following:
* The crypto op pool using rte_crypto_op_pool_create()
* The symmetric session pool using rte_cryptodev_sym_session_pool_create()

So, the pools will be shared by the 5 cryptodevs. Is this safe to do?

Is there any recommendation on whether each cryptodev instance should have its own memory pools?
