Using multiple DPDK processes they all want to init and control the port, so it is not going to work. The only way a port can be shared is to use the primary and secondary processes as multiple primary processes is not going work here. I normally only run Pktgen as two or more primary process and a primary/secondary setup would most likely require Pktgen to change and I do not have the time to work on that version. You can try it and let me know how it works plus I maybe able to give you pointers on what would need to change in Pktgen.
