[dpdk-users] running pkt-gen in a container

I have the following setup:
Ovs-dpdk is running in a VM.
I have 1 dpdk type port in the OVS (connected to the NIC w SR-IOV).
I have an LXC-container (or for simplicity a network namespace) in the VM - currently connected to the OVS via veth-pair.
I want to run pkt-get in the namespace - my questions:
1. I guess I have to run another DPDK instance in the namespace - to run pkt-gen on top of DPD, correct ? (i.e. - cannot use the ovs-dpdk instance ) 2. How to connect the namespace to the OVS in order to achieve zero copy ? (I guess veth is not suitable for that) - can I use vHost-user netdev or ivshmem, to connet ovs with the namespace ?
3. In cont. to question 2 - what interface should I bind to the DPDK instance running in the namespace Thanks in advance Avi
