[dpdk-users] 8K flow limit

We are running Pktgen on two seperate VMs.  We use a range of src mac
addresses to create a certain amount of flows. We have noticed that there
is a ~8K flow limit per VF bonded to the VM. It is basically a limit of 8K
src macs that create a flow for each port/VF. Is this a Pktgen limit? Is
there a way to achieve more flows per VF bonded to the VM?

Kind regards
