SubjectRe: [ovs-dev] [PATCH net-next v2] openvswitch: add TTL decrement action
Hi Matteo,
Did you have plan to implement the TTL decrement action in userspace
datapath(with dpdk),
I am doing some research offloading about TTL decrement action, and
may sent patch TTL decrement offload action,
using dpdk rte_flow.
