One possible solution I use and if you have enough ports available to use.
-Lets say you need two ports for your application, but you have 4 ports in
-your system. I physically loop back the cables to have port 0 connect to
-port 2 and port 1 connected to port 3. Now I can give two ports to my
-application and two ports to Pktgen.
-Setup if pktgen and your application you have to startup each one a bit
-differently to make sure they share the resources like memory and the
-ports. I will use two Pktgen running on the same machine, which just means
-you have to setup your application as one of the applications.

In my machine I have 8 10G ports and 72 lcores between 2 sockets. Plus I
have 1024 hugepages per socket for a total of 2048.
