[dpdk-users] Issue with more Cores assigned: Cannot mmap device resource file

Thank you for your reply.
I have tested my program on two machines
A) 1 x Intel E5-2650 v4, 12 cores [UMA]
B) 2 x Intel E5-2640 v4, 10 cores [NUMA]
I am very sure that the primary process uses different cores with the
secondary process. The strange thing is that my program works correctly on
machine *B*. But on machine *A*, the above issue happens with more than 4
cores assigned to the secondary process.
I have tried to assign cores 1-5 to the secondary process and also
tried other core assignment policies, but the error still happens
rte_eal_init() with more than 4 cores.
