In pktgen the range and other modes setup the 8192 packets allocated just before sending the frames. The reason you only get 8192 is that is the number of packet buffers allocated. In the app/pktgen-constants.h change the following line by increasing the ‘8’ to something larger. This value will increase the number of packets created per port so the amount used for memory will increase.
MAX_MBUFS_PER_PORT = (DEFAULT_TX_DESC * 8),/* number of buffers to support per port */
