I have built VPP 18.07 according to the instructions from this page: How to Build VPP FD.IO Development Environment with Mellanox DPDK PMD for ConnectX-4 and ConnectX-5
VPP recognizes Mellanox ports, but it hangs after "up" command applied to one of those ports.
VPP log (/var/log/vpp/vpp.log) shows no errors.
Is VPP 18.07 compatible with ConnectX-4?
Many thanks for reaching out to the Mellanox Community.
As the ConnectX-4 is using the same mlx5 PMD driver as the ConnectX-5, the ConnectX-4 is supported for using with VPP.
For VPP support, please refer to the VPP Mailings list.
