    DPDK API/library question

    aithr Community Member

      Hello,

       

      I am currently new to the DPDK library, so my question is a bit basic.

       

      I would like to know if I can use the DPDK ring, mbuf or memory pool APIs as generic libraries. For example, my application has nothing to do with the network but it needs a lockless ring buffer library. Do I need EAL or some specific system settings to make it work? I cannot change some settings like HUGETBL support since I don't have root access.

       

      If yes, some code examples will be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
