Hi All,

I was going through the direct and indirect buffer management. So it is said that in indirect mbuf_data will be attached to another direct mbuf_data and they are a single packet. So does this mean that I can have my Ethernet Header in my direct buffer and my data (without Ethernet ) in another buffer and when I can the API rte_mbuf_pkt_attach it becomes a single packet. This does not internally copy the buffers to another mbuf right.

Thanking You,
