Hi Avi, 

Please try the following command    ovs-vsctl --timeout 10 add-port br-phy dpdk0   -- set Interface dpdk0 type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=mlx5_0 

You need to specify port name, mlx5_0 or mlx5_1 according  ibv_devinfo output 

Starting DPDK 18.02 and 17.11.2 you will be able to use PCI address as OVS   devargs parameters. 

Best Regards,
Olga

Hi
I cannot add mellanox dpdk port - and  I don't find any reference for this for new ovs versions I get  an error message when typing this command
ovs-vsctl --timeout 10 add-port br-phy dpdk0   -- set Interface dpdk0 type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=0000:04:00:0
I'm running:
Openvswitch 2.8.1 ; dpdk-17.08 ' mellanox - connectx-4

Best Regards
Avi
