ovs-vsctl add-br tenantA -- set bridge tenantA datapath_type=netdev
ovs-vsctl add-port tenantA dpdkvp0 -- set interface dpdkvp0 type=dpdk \

# Add tunnel port
ovs-vsctl add-port tenantA vx1 -- set interface vx1 type=vxlan \
  options:remote_ip= options:key=100

# Tenant B
ovs-vsctl --if-exists del-br tenantB

ovs-vsctl add-br tenantB -- set bridge tenantB datapath_type=netdev
ovs-vsctl add-port tenantB dpdkvp1 -- set interface dpdkvp1 type=dpdk \

# Add tunnel port
