Please see\n\"check_rx_burst_bulk_alloc_preconditions()\" in ixgbe_rxtx.c, and\nRX function assignment logic in \"ixgbe_dev_rx_queue_setup()\" in\nthe same file.\n\nThe difference in IO performance for testpmd when called without any\noptional parameters, and using 10G NICs using the ixgbe driver, can be\nsignificant - approx 25% or more.\n\nUpdates in V2:\n* Updated commit message with additional details\n\nSigned-off-by: Bruce Richardson <bruce.richardson@intel.com>\n---\n app/test-pmd/testpmd.c | 4 +++-\n 1 file changed, 3 insertions(+), 1 deletion(-)",
