I have OVS-DPDK connected to a namespace via veth pair device.
I've got a very poor performance - compared to normal OVS (i.e. no DPDK).
For example - TCP jumbo pkts throughput: normal OVS ~ 10Gbps , OVS-DPDK 1.7 Gbps.
This can be explained as follows:
veth is implemented in kernel - in OVS-DPDK data is transferred from veth to user space while in normal OVS we save this transfer
Is there any other device to connect to namespace ? something like vhost-user ? I understand that vhost-user cannot be used for namespace
