Thanks for your replies. I resolved it by installing latest debian
packages. Now its working well.
I have encountered another problem with the following error logs:

2018-02-08T04:11:08Z|00006|dpdk|ERR|DPDK not supported in this copy of Open

2018-02-08T04:11:08Z|00026|connmgr|INFO|bridge1: added service controller

Is it because of I am using dpdk 17.05.2 with ovs 2.8.1? If these two
versions are not compatible then which versions should I use?
I checked the compatibility  before using the both versions from this link "
Please help.

Thanks and regards
