> Hi, I understand that the DPDK uses port_id to identify an Ethernet port.  Is there a shell command to show a port’s status, such as link status and port ID etc.  For non-DPDK bound port I can use tools like “ifconfig”.  Does DPDK provide an “ifconfig” equivalent tool to check a port status?

DPDK network interfaces are not visible or controlled by kernel.
There are some ways to expose them i.e through KNI and some other proposed code.
