Hi,

What is the best way for tracking memory leaks, double-free and buffer
overflows in an application based on DPDK ?

Some years ago, there were some patches for Valgrind (support of
rte_malloc) and DPDK. It seems that Valgrind no longer works with DPDK
18.05 (Cannot get a virtual area: Invalid argument).
I also see some advices about using ASAN but how does it work with
hugepages and rte_malloc ?

Thanks
