Hello Paul,

The error happens when testpmd application tries to acquire enough memory from 
the hugepages.
Only suggestion is to provide a little more memory (for example, 1g to start 
with) and see if that changes your situation.

How much memory can you spare for hugepages? Or, how much have you already 
spared?
Can you dump output of 'cat /proc/meminfo' (assuming Linux)?

I don't have any other suggestions beyond this.

Hi Shreyansh,


Thanks for the reply.

I tried to increase the number from 64 to 230. And the number of 460 is larger 
than 442.

However, the error message is the same.

Is there anything I can check here ?


Thanks



Paul

Essentially you are trying to reserve 64x2M = 128M memory. Did you try 
increasing it?

Testpmd is trying to allocate 203456*2176 bytes ~ 442MB.
Can you try with memory more than this number?
Or, try with 'total-num-mbufs=<>' passed to testpmd.
