Hi All,

When I have a system with NUMA enabled and say my application is running one DPDK thread and I use that thread for the memory allocation will the memory be physically allocated during the access time or will the memory be allocated on the Node where the DPDK thread was initially running when the memory allocation functions was called. So threads accessing the memory locations from the other nodes remotely will suffer a degradation in performance. Please correct me if I am wrong. 

Thanking You,
