I try to test dpdk. But I have some problems with configuration.
I have blade Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5667 3.07GHz 64 GB RAM with VMWare ESXi 5.5
installed on it. Virtual machine Ubuntu 12.04 server amd 64. And I try to configure
hugepages with 1GB size. In documentation wrote:
- The hugepage sizes that a CPU supports can be determined from the CPU flags. If pse
exists, 2M hugepages are supported; if pdpe1gb exists, 1G hugepages are supported.
- For 64-bit applications, it is recommended to use 1 GB hugepages if the platform
When linux is installed though VMWare, pdpe1gb flag doesn't exist, when installed directly
to blade this flag exist. Also i tried on debian 7.3 amd 64.
Anyone else met with a similar problem?
