We have no plans on doing any of this. If someone wants to try out the work and perform some testing to show that it has benefits in our architecture, we’d certainly review that, but based on what I see, it would only help in a handful of scenarios that would be better helped by using kernel methods of routing traffic, so if anything is going to be tried, it would likely be that.

And the biggest benifit from DPDK is you will get more cpu time for other task, such as "transcoding"( traditional nic work mode will eat much cpu on high traffic ).

> Just mu 5ct because I haven't spent much time with DPDK, but also my impression is that is useful when doing packet routing rather than application level complex processing (e.g., handling rtp for dtmf, transcoding or mixing streams). Only maybe make sense for media passthrough mode with freeswitch, but I guess it won't bring much more performance benefits at the expense of losing all media processing capabilities. If you only need to collect the rtp streams to a single point, using kernel forwarding (iptables) rules can be an alternative solution to cope with more traffic (rtpengine can do that, controlled by kamailio sip proxy).
