In this chapter

This chapter describes the multi-CPU distribution functionality. It enables the SmartNIC to off-load the CPU load-balancing by distributing the processing of captured frames in the host CPU.

The multi-CPU distribution functionality places captured frames into separate buffers for the different CPU cores in the host system that are used for frame processing.

See DN-0988 for more details on multi-CPU distribution.
