[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v9 3/3] mbuf: make default mempool ops configurable at build

David Hunt david.hunt at intel.com
Fri Jun 10 17:16:46 CEST 2016


By default, the mempool ops used for mbuf allocations is a multi
producer and multi consumer ring. We could imagine a target (maybe some
network processors?) that provides an hardware-assisted pool
mechanism. In this case, the default configuration for this architecture
would contain a different value for RTE_MBUF_DEFAULT_MEMPOOL_OPS.
