- <h2>What it is</h2>
- <p>DPDK is a set of libraries and drivers
- for <strong>fast packet processing</strong>.
- <p>It is designed to run on <strong>any processors</strong>.
- The first supported CPU was Intel x86 and it is now extended to
- IBM POWER and ARM.
- <p>It runs mostly in Linux <strong>userland</strong>.
- A FreeBSD port is available for a subset of DPDK features.</p>
- <p>DPDK is an <a href="http://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause">Open Source BSD licensed</a> project.
- The most recent patches and enhancements, provided by the community,
- are available in <a href="/browse/dpdk/log/">master branch</a>.</p>
- <h3>Main libraries</h3>
- <ul>
- <li>multicore framework</li>
- <li>huge page memory</li>
- <li>ring buffers</li>
- <li>poll-mode drivers
- for <a href="/doc/nics">networking</a>
- , <a href="/doc/guides/cryptodevs/">crypto</a>
- and <a href="/doc/guides/eventdevs/">eventdev</a></li>
- </ul>
- <h3>Usage</h3>
- <p>These libraries can be used to:</p>
- <ul>
- <li>receive and send packets within the minimum number of CPU cycles (usually less than 80 cycles)</li>
- <li>develop fast packet capture algorithms (tcpdump-like)</li>
- <li>run third-party fast path stacks</li>
- </ul>
- <p>Some packet processing functions have been benchmarked up to
- hundreds million frames per second, using 64-byte packets with a PCIe NIC.</p>
- <h2>What it is not</h2>
- <p>DPDK is not a networking stack and does not provide functions such as
- Layer-3 forwarding, IPsec, firewalling, etc.
- Within the tree, however, various
- <a href="/browse/dpdk/tree/examples/">application examples are included</a>
- to help developing such features.</p>
- <p>Some support and services are provided by <a href="/about">several companies</a>.</p>
