>/home/poc/pktgen-2.9.7$ sudo ./app/app/x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc/pktgen 
>-c 0x0f -n 3 --proc-type auto --socket-mem 256,256 -b 0000:01:00.0 -b 
>0000:01:00.1 --file-prefix pg -- -P -m "[1:3].0, [0:2].1"

I also noticed you used core 0 [0:2].1 Pktgen requires a core to run display and timers. If you only have a 4 core system then the first core in -c 0f can not be used here. You will need to adjust the cores being used to something like -m”1.0, 2.1” or -m”[1:2].0, 3.1”

Also make sure the blacklist PCI devices are valid ports to blacklist.
