Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK)

Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) greatly boosts packet processing performance and throughput, allowing more time for data plane applications. 

DPDK can improve packet processing performance by up to ten times. DPDK software running on current generation Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2658 v4, achieves 233 Gbps (347 Mpps) of L3 forwarding at 64-byte packet sizes.1 As a result, telecom and network equipment manufacturers (TEMs and NEMs) can lower development costs, use fewer tools and support teams, and get to market faster.

Developers can use DPDK to consolidate workloads into a single architecture, for a more scalable and simplified solution.

Infos sur le produit et ses performances


Les tests et les indices de performances portent sur des configurations spécifiques, leurs éléments ou les deux. Ils rendent compte approximativement des performances des produits Intel® mesurées par ces tests. Une différence dans la configuration matérielle ou logicielle est ainsi susceptible d’avoir une incidence sur les performances effectives. Il est donc conseillé aux acheteurs de consulter d’autres sources d’informations pour évaluer les performances des configurations ou des éléments de configuration dont ils envisagent l’acquisition. Pour en savoir plus sur les tests de performances subis par les produits Intel® et leurs performances effectives, consultez la rubrique du site d’Intel consacrée aux limites des bancs d’essai.
