Hi Zhang, If you look at the source of interrupt handlers in both the igb_uio and uio_pci_generic drivers (look for irqreturn_t type), you will see they can disable interrupts immediately after receipt of one. It's up to the user to make sure they're re-enabled. Also please compare with code in i40e_ethdev.c, which still does this correctly - there's an explicit rte_intr_enable(dev->intr_handle) call at the end of i40e_dev_interrupt_handler(). Probably a cleaner approach would be to leave them disabled as is, but only enable them for a once-off receipt when sending an AdminQ message, maybe that was the assumption here. However I've added some tracing to igbuio_pci_irqcontrol() and I'm sure this isn't happening on my system. (nothing is enabling those interrupts post device init). Looks like code path might be different with the newest igb_uio driver and MSI enabled, but the current code will still not work for all cases (like with uio_pci_generic). There can also be cases when you have and older igb_uio driver which disables interrupts in all cases and running it with with a new DPDK. (vendor provided compiled driver) I think for full compatibility we need to keep re-enabling those interrupts.

Usually we will not accept a fix just because it work but not understand the root cause.
