Currently, 'nb_fwd_lcores' value are both adjusted based on
'nb_fwd_streams' in rss/simple/icmp_echo_fwd_config_setup.
But the operation is missing in dcb_fwd_config_setup, which
may lead to a bad behavior in which multiple polling threads
operate on the same queue. In this case, the device sends and
receives packets, causing unexpected results. The procedure is
 as follows:
1/ run testpmd with "--rxq=8 --txq=8"
2/ port stop all
3/ set nbcore 8
4/ port config 0 dcb vt off 4 pfc on
5/ port config all rxq 16
6/ port config all txq 16
7/ port start all
8/ set fwd mac
9/ start

For the DCB forwarding test, each core is assigned to each
traffic class and each core is assigned a multi-stream.
Therefore, 'nb_fwd_lcores' value needs to be adjusted based
 on 'total_tc_num' in all forwarding ports.

Same as v2 comment.
Please check that.
