Subject: [dpdk-users] DPDK without Hugepages
Date: Thu, 8 Oct 2020 20:11:23 +0000
Message-ID: <BYAPR20MB2888249BDA5F0F240AA0A2E0DD0B0@BYAPR20MB2888.namprd20.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

I am new to DPDK... I'd like to know if it is possible to use DPDK without the acceleration of hugepages, specifically rings, mbuf and hashmap, but not using accelerated networking.

I realize it will not be as performant, but is it possible? In case someone would want to know why would I want to do that is - we have already developed code that uses DPDK, were we control the OS, kernel, packaging etc. There is a portion of that we'd like to use in environment where we do not and cannot control kernel/os and thus would not be able to configure hugepages. For obvious reasons, we don't want to rewrite the code and use a different libraries.

I've noticed the docs has an option for no-huge but it is also claimed unsupported. So before we resort to desperate measures, I'm hoping it is possible.

Appreciate any help/advise.

Meni
