[dpdk-users] Pktgen performance tricks

Hi, apologies for such a simple question:
I'm able to send about 4M custom packets by Pktgen using the following
pktgen -c 0x3 -n 4 --  -m "1.0"
Hoping to speed up, I added some more cores with
pktgen -c 0x7 -n 4 --  -m "1.0, 2.1"
but this does not really improve the performance. I've been tinkering a
bit, but no great breaktrough. What would be the best approach/parameters?
I'm only interested in TX this time.

Thanks in advance,
