[ovs-discuss] CPU freqency is not max when running ovs_DPDK

Hi All,

I am using OVS_DPDK, and the target CPU has running 100%. However, I notice the cpu frequency is NOT exceeding the max value, so the performance may not reach the best value. I have 2 pmd only for now, each is hyper-thread core in one physical core.

I am not sure the reason, and do not get idea after going through the BIOS and googles. Can someone kindly indicate the root cause? I am using centos7.  Appreciate your help.

# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu4/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq
2599980                                                   ---------àI expect it would be 3000000
