Are there ways to seamlessly run DPDK with Docker? I came across an articles about running DPDK with Linux container but still the requirement is to insert igb_uio. Any plans to make the igb_uio and rte_kni modules as default modules of Linux source code or any other better approaches/suggestions ? Thanks.
igb_uio and rte_kni are unlikely to be accepted upstream since they have intrinsic security problems.
Can you use VFIO?
