Thanks Stephen,
We've tried to debug issue in couple of ways, please correct us whether
these approaches or right not wrong?
1. We have increased the MAX_PKT_BURST from 32 to 64 and
MEMEPOOL_CAHCE_SIZE 256 to 512
2. Keeping IGB_UIO as the only driver module.
3. Resetting the RX queues.
But still we are seeing the issue, as mentioned above========
