3.4.1. L2 Ethernet Interface LoopΒΆ

This section includes summary graphs of Testpmd Phy-to-Phy packet latency with L2 Ethernet Interface Loop measured at 50% of discovered NDR throughput rate. Latency is reported for Testpmd running in multiple configurations of Testpmd pmd thread(s), a.k.a. Testpmd data plane thread(s), and their physical CPU core(s) placement.

Testpmd packet latency - running in configuration of one worker thread (1t) on one physical core (1c) - is presented in the figure below.
