Hello,
I am trying to understand how dpdk allocate memory. I tried digging code to
understand memory allocation of DPDK. So far I understood that memory is
allocated from a heap that dpdk maintains. However, this heap must be
allocated at some place. I failed to traceback any function (called from
heap_alloc()) that calls mmap to allocate memory. Please let me know when
this heap is created, which function call does that.
Thanks
