Hi Thomas, et.al.
Thanks for response.
I have followed the advices provided in the links you have provided but
still i see the problem.
Recently, I studied dpdk-pktgen application and developed an application very
much similar to that. I mean, have made device, rx and tx, memmory pool and
cache size configurations that pktgen uses. pktgen seems work fine without any
Rx packet drop but my application reports packet drop.
Any guess what could be wrong with my application?
I see packet drops in my application, when I launch some other application
(say browser or system monitor). But, in such situations, pktgen application
works without any packet drops.

This is very complicate because it really depends on the hardware.
Managing performance requires a very good knowledge of the hardware.
You can find some basic advices in this guide for some Intel hardware:
You will also find some informations in the drivers guide. Example:
