Tool to test if your NIC is supported by DPDK framework.
This is a small tool that tests if you have NICs (Network Interface Cards) that are supported by http://dpdk.org/ 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 $? 0
$ dpdktest You don't have NICs supported by DPDK $ echo $? 255
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.
