Here is dump of my rx_mode. (i am using dpdk 17.05.1)
but still I don't see my code is able to capture packet. TX is fine.
What other area of code I should check?

In order to support >1500 bytes, you need to at least:
    1. set jumbo_frame when setting rxmode
    2. set enable_scatter in rxmode (unless mtu + overhead < pool size)
    3. make sure pool mbuf size > eth->min_rx_buf_size
