lib.rs:

#dpdk-global-allocator A wrapper around DPDK's packet distributor framework with support for slave logical cores and service logical cores.

An user of this crate should create an instance of PacketDistributorControllerLoop and then use DPDK's slave logical cores or service logical cores to run it repeatedly. This particular loop implementation distributes packets to workers but does not process returned packets.

DPDK's underlying code never reserves but never frees memory on creation... potentially limiting the usefulness of this framework.

Whilst DPDK is supported for Linux on AArch64, ARM v7, PowerPC 64-bit (recent) and x86-64, and FreeBSD on x86-64, only Linux x86-64 will compile.

Some work has been done to try to maintain compatibility with FreeBSD and other architectures but this is not maintained yet.
