Enable DPDK with OVS¶
Consider this section as part of Deploy an OpenStack cluster.
This section instructs you on how to enable DPDK with the Neutron OVS back end.
To enable DPDK with OVS:
Verify that your deployment meets the following requirements:
The required drivers have been installed on the host operating system.
Different Poll Mode Driver (PMD) types may require different kernel drivers to properly work with NIC. For more information about the DPDK drivers, read DPDK official documentation: Linux Drivers and Overview of Networking Drivers.
The DPDK NICs are not used on the host operating system.
The huge pages feature is enabled on the host. See Enable huge pages for OpenStack for details.
Enable DPDK in the OsDpl custom resource through the
node specific overridessettings. For example:
spec: nodes: <NODE-LABEL>::<NODE-LABEL-VALUE>: features: neutron: dpdk: bridges: - ip_address: 10.12.2.80/24 name: br-phy driver: igb_uio enabled: true nics: - bridge: br-phy name: nic01 pci_id: "0000:05:00.0" tunnel_interface: br-phy
