    Flow director not spreading the flows on processors

    oalhassane

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to evaluate Intel's flow director technology on a system with a Xeon E5-2643 and 4x10G XL710 Adapter.

       

      The traffic is generated with nuttcp from client1 to server1 and from client2 to server2 (See attached document).

       

      I was expecting Flow Director to pin each flow (different 5 tuples) on a dedicated processor ... but it does not seems to be the case. The flow are always be handle by the same processor.

       

      Am i missing something ? shouldn’t the second flow be on a different queue (processor) ?

       

      Thanks
