Hi Steven, we are also looking at using dpdk based virtualethernet interface, so looking back at this thread i was wondering what is the problem with dpdk based solution.
1. you mentioned dpdk based interface can be created via vdev in dpdk clause of startup file, can you share some example there. only thing i have seen as an example so far is associating a bond interface with physical slave interfaces, is it possible to create one for VM ? 2. can you please share a link to the patch submitted for dpdk virtio-user Regards, PrabhjotFROM: Steven Luong (sluong) <slu...@cisco.com> SENT: Monday, September 11, 2017 7:46 PM TO: Guo, Ruijing; Saxena, Nitin; firstname.lastname@example.org SUBJECT: Re: [vpp-dev] vhost-user stable implementation?: VPP native or DPDK If you create the VIrtualEthernet interface via the CLI or binary API, it always uses VPP native. If you create the virtual interface via vdev in the dpdk clause in the startup file, it uses dpdk’s vhost-user. The problem is in DPDK virtio-user that they don’t comply with virtio1.0 spec. I submitted a patch for them. I don’t think they took it yet.

The default one is vpp native. But it cannot work with virtio-user. So I change to vhost-user in dpdk.

Since this video is 1 yr old and I am using vpp version 1704. Can anyone please comment which vhost-user code is by default enabled in vpp1704 - is it dpdk one or VPP native? I can see in vpp-master/RELEASE.md that DPDK vhost was deprecated in vpp1609? Is it fixed now? Thanks, Nitin Links: ------  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-ZRof2hDP0
