Tool to test if your NIC is supported by DPDK framework.

Project Description

This is a small tool that tests if you have NICs (Network Interface Cards) that are supported by framework.

It works only on python 3:

$ pip3 install dpdktest

If you’re lucky, you’ll see something like this:

$ dpdktest
NICs supported by DPDK: ['eth0', 'eth1']
$ echo $?


$ dpdktest
You don't have NICs supported by DPDK
$ echo $?

How It Works?

First of all supported devices vedor:device ID list is constructed from rte_pci_dev_ids.h.

Then dpdktest find all network interfaces in your computer, gets vendor:device ID pairs for every interfaces and checks if ID is in dpdktest/supported_devices.txt.
