Hi all,

I would like to implement a DPDK application that dumps a set of rules to a
Mellanox ConnectX-5 NIC and starts a number of threads (each on a different
core) that receive the classified packets according to the rules.
The rules are of the form src IP X and dst IP Y --> Send to core Z.

Is there such an application (or similar) in the source tree? Does the
Mellanox NIC require any special treatment or is there a unified API to do
this job regardless of the NIC? Which DPDK version do you propose?
