OvS-DPDK Hardware offload
OVD-DPDK Hardware offload 基于 DPDK 的 rte_flow Lib 来实现。
rte_flow 是 DPDK 对 Flow Representation 的实现，rte_flow API & structure 用于将 pkt forwarding rule 编程到（Program）NIC-hardware。例如将 OvS-DPDK Rule 卸载到 SmartNIC 上。
This dpdk-way of flow- representation is called rte-flow. An open-flow rule when converted into dpdk-defined flow-format, then this flow-data-structure is called rte-flow. Once a rte-flow is formed it can be passed to any PMD to be processed and Programmed into the hardware.
