From Intel’s DPDK 17.05 performance report for X710 Converged Ethernet Adapter (below), I see that you used the below host FW/driver versions on Ubuntu:

Driver version: 1.4.25-k
firmware-version: 5.05 0x800028a6 0.0.0

Could you please advise what should be the right ESXi 6.0 equivalent ?

My current configuration is:
