We can try to test for Multi-segs in pktgen in the file app/pktgen-port-cfg.c you can search for MULTI_SEGS and add the test.

                        if (info->dev_info.tx_offload_capa & DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS)
                                conf.txmode.offloads |= DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS;

Hi Keith,

I found the root cause for the problem " requested Tx offloads 0x8000 doesn't match Tx offloads capabilities 0xe" in EC2 instances.
The DPDK ENA driver does not have "DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS" TX offload capability in TX offloads capabilities and in Pktgen when Jumbo frame is enabled, the TX-offload adds " DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS".

Is "DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS" necessary when the Jumbo frame is enable in the Pktgen or can we first check if the Device supports the offload or not and then add " DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS"?

What is the mechanism of "DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS" when enabling Jumbo frames?

Please update to the latest Pktgen 21.02.0 with the latest DPDK version. If you can not upgrade then please look at the latest version as some work for jumbo frames was done a few months ago.
