[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3] usertools/dpdk-telemetry: add file-prefix cmdline argument

Currently the dpdk-telemetry.py script connects to  all running DPDK apps
consecutively. With the addition of this file-prefix argument, we can limit
the amount of information returned providing improved consumability and
precision to the user.
