    HELP: DPDK with ConnectX-3 problem

    masaruk

      Hi, all

       

      I'm trying to use dpdk with Mellanox ConnectX-3.

      But, mlnx4 pmd cannot work fine.

       

      Following is my environment:

        OS: CentOS 6.5 (x86_64) with kernel version 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64

        Mellanox OFED: MLNX_OFED_LINUX-3.1-1.1.0.1-rhel6.5-x86_64

        DPDK: MLNX_DPDK-2.1_1.1

        Device: ConnectX®-3 EN network interface card with firmware version 2.35.5100

       

      I'm trying to run testpmd, but librte_pmd_mlx4 reports "ibv_exp_query_device() failed",

      and EAL reports "No probed ethernet devices".

       

      What can I do next to work mlx4 pmd fine?

       

      Following is the testpmd's output:
