Hi Cliff,

Yes, I had tried it.

When I set memory on both NUMA nodes it works without this issue.

I set using the following commands:

root at rg2-14053:/home/adara/raghu_2/dpdk-2.2.0# echo 128 > /sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages 
root at rg2-14053:/home/adara/raghu_2/dpdk-2.2.0# echo 128 > /sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages 
root at rg2-14053:/home/adara/raghu_2/dpdk-2.2.0# 
root at rg2-14053:/home/adara/raghu_2/dpdk-2.2.0# cat /sys/devices/system/node/node1/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages
128
root at rg2-14053:/home/adara/raghu_2/dpdk-2.2.0# cat /sys/devices/system/node/node0/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/nr_hugepages
128


Thanks,
Raghu
