This work will provide substantially better packet forwarding performance in the base CORD platform. All use cases built on the platform (R-CORD, E-CORD, M-CORD) are expected to gain performance benefits.
How you can help
Changes are required to the Ansible playbooks that drive the build, and the Juju charms / configuration that sets up OpenStack. We are looking for contributors familiar with OpenStack and OVS-DPDK. Here is the Epic in Jira where we are tracking tasks for this brigade:
The initial target is to build a CORD-in-a-Box with the changes to enable DPDK support in place. The next step would be to deploy and validate the changes on a hardware POD at ONF.
