[dpdk-users] Best approach for kvm using dpdk without the DPDK sample applications

Hi DPDK people!
I am using KVM and have dpdk installed on my VM Host.
I have used vfio_pci and done host passthrough to the VM, however the link
is always down.
I know the nic device name disappears in Linux when applying drivers from
dpdk, but I need to send traffic from my VM out of the SR-IOV nic to
another VM Host with SR-IOV nic.
I can use SR-IOV with igb and igbvf with hostdev passthrough, and via
macvtap but I want better speeds. Is there a way of achieving it with
dpdk outside of the sample applications that send packets to test rates.
Is there a tutorial, other than the basic Intel ones to get line rates with
a presented interface that bypasses the kernel processing the rx_fifo queue?
I use an Intel I350 1GBe card just to be clear.
