[dpdk-dev] virtio-net-pmd performance or running dpdk on VMs

We want to run DPDK application on unmodified VM and unmodified Open
We tried http://dpdk.org/doc/virtio-net-pmd and on l3fwd application we
got only 90Kpps. At the same time, without DPDK at all - 150Kpps on
sending traffic between two eths.
Does anyone know why that happened? Does anyone measure the performance
of virtio-net-pmd driver? Are there any ways to run DPDK on unmodified VMs?
Our setup was:
- unmodified kvm/qemu VM with two eths; OVS on VM sends traffic from one
eth to another one.
- unmodified OVS on host machine with 4 ports: two physical (10Gb) and
two virtual for the VM.
- traffic gen provides us 15M 64-bytes packets per second.
Thanks and Regards!
