[dpdk-users] Assigning queues according to MAC or VLAN

Hi all,

I'm trying to dispatch packets to queue according to VLAN or MAC address with Intel 82599 cards. But the question remains general.

I tried MAC-VLAN flow director mode but it seems unsupported by those cards and Intel XL710 ones also (With testpmd, 82599 refuse to initialize and I get operation not supported for XL710). Is it really an hardware limitation or should support be coming soon?

With VMDq, I could create pools with MAC/VLAN filters but the problem is that MAC and VLAN assignation are static, at initialization time. I'd prefer a dynamic solution where I can change filtering parameters while running.

Last resort seems to use VFs, but it's a bit overkill and I'm not sure about the performance penalty. Is it my only option?
