Subject: [dpdk-users] Interface disappears after binding with DPDK igb_uio
Date: Mon, 14 Sep 2020 20:32:50 -0500
Message-ID: <CALv4WycO2x21oWrOSO92EZhCKsmMqq4dD1L-Yjpb7+=G89=ntA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hello,

I am trying to use DPDK on a IXGBE port, but whenever I bind the igb_uio
driver to this interface, the interface disappears from the system. DPDK
however shows the interface as attached. I also have the KNI module present
added to the system, as there are some previous threads that suggested that
the interface does not show up because igb_uio driver does not generate
netdev devices.

Following is the log of the operations:

1. `ifconfig` before binding:
