Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
We suggest review as a reference the information stated in section 18.104.22.168 of the 2. System Requirements — Data Plane Development Kit 17.02.0-rc0 documentation, the answers to the questions 3, 4, and 7 of the 1. What does “EAL: map_all_hugepages(): open failed: Permission denied Cannot init memory” mean? — Data Plane Developmen… , and the DPDK on RedHat how to allocate hugepages on a NUMA node in grub.conf forum.
We hope that this information is useful to you.
I previously read through all of this. This really doesn't address any of the questions I am asking.
By those instructions and what is publicly documenting it is basically saying there are absolutely no additional RAM requirements if I am driving a single 1 Gb interface at minimal load or 10x 10 Gb interfaces at full load. Can that really be the case?
