[dpdk-dev] Unable to run test_pmd_perf

Hi All,

We have VMs on a physical server  with both VMs having 1 core 7 GB RAM 
with DPDK 16.04. The VMs are communicating using SR-IOV (per VM 1 VF is 
assigned). We thought of running the test_pmd_perf to test the number of 
cycles taken for RX/TX. But we are unable to get it working. Even if we 
assign 4 VCPUs to the VM the app says "*no avail lcore to test*."  The 
command we are using are:

cd dpdk16.04/app/test

./build/app/test -c f -- -p 1

RTE>> pmd_perf_autotest

On searching we found that it might be an issue with our VMs using SRIOV.

Please guide us on this.
